Orange Stain on My Carpet or Clothes Soda is notoriously hard to remove from carpets. This is because soda is made with food coloring and sugars, creating sticky, discolored carpet fibers. Over time, the stickiness can attract animal fur, dust and dirt.
Mix one tablespoon of liquid hand dishwashing detergent, one-half cup distilled white vinegar and two cups of warm water. Use a clean white cloth to blot this solution into the stain. Work from the outside edges toward the center to prevent spreading the stain.
