Coke Zero is no harder to remove than the average coke stain. You need to be careful to remove as much of the residue as possible however, to avoid the stain from reappearing. Here is what you need to clean the spot. You need some white cotton towels or paper towels, a general spotetr and a vinegar solution. The general spotter is made from a quart of water and a tablespoon of a mild dish soap (not automatic dish soap). The vinegar solution is made by mixing one part white distilled vinegar and three parts water. Always test any cleaning solution you intend to use on an inconspicuous part of the carpet.
- Step 1:
If the spot is fresh, dab the spot with clean and dry towels until no more of the stain transfers to the cloth. Be sure to dab and do not rub the spot. Rubbing the spot will abrade the fibers.
- Step 2:
Lightly mist the spot with your general spotter. Allow the spotter to dwell for a few seconds and then blot it up with your towel. Once again, dab the spot, do not rub.
- Step 3:
Repeat this process until no more of the Coke Zero stain transfers to your cloth.
- Step 4:
Neutralize your spotter with your vinegar solution. Apply a generous amount of the vinegar solution to the spot without over saturating the area. Blot the solution up after giving it a few seconds of dwell time.
- Step 5:
Allow the area to fully dry before putting it back to use. A small portable fan can be uses to speed drying time.
