How do I get a soda stain outta a white rug?

Lastnight my fiancé was drinking that red mountain dew and put it on the floor next to the couch. He got up and spilt it and didn't bother cleaning it up. Now today there is a red stain on our WHITE carpet. I don't have the car so I can't go out and buy rug cleaning supplies. Anyone know of any house hold products that will work?

Could dish soap and water work?

  • Hey that would work don't let it sit too long I would have tried to sopp it up with cold water first atleast to get the color out and then go back with the rag wiht soap and water and dringe it alittle in that area and try to wipe it up then wring your rag really tight and try to sopp up the water keep doing this until there is nothing else to sopp oh! and put a fan in that area so it may dry up quicker. If you are still not happy with the results I'd suggest you repeat this again. It is bound to come out if you doing it soon. GL
