Carbonated fruit drinks. Tips to remove Carbonated fruit drinks stains
When fruit drinks have been spilled on your upholstery, the first thing that you should do is blot up the excess liquid if the spill is still wet.
Sometimes with stain resistant upholstery, the liquids will almost, Ďsití on top of the fabric, but if you wait too long it will sink into the upholstery.
If the fruit drink is dried, spraying the stained area with a few sprays of water will enable you to work out that stain while dabbing at the now moist area. Keep dabbing at the stained area with a clean towel until you are not bringing any more stain colors out of the upholstery. Continue to wet and blot the fabric, so that you can work out that stain in the upholstery.
Just dabbing the area will dry out the upholstery. If the fruit drink stain still is visible in the upholstery, add a few drops of clear, bleach free detergent to the water.
Re spray the upholstery and then dab and blot it clean.Repeat this until the stain is gone or until you are not bringing out any more of the stain.
