Unhappy Uh oh... :(

Ok, so I did a helluva booboo...
So I was DD on New Years for a friend's party, so I all I drank was Coke Zero. Stupidly, however, I left a couple cans on the floor of the back seat of my truck... Fast forward to this afternoon... It's been -20c all day and... damnit... the cans of pop exploded in the back of my truck.

The worst of it was frozen to the back of the driver seat and on the headliner in the back seat. I shop vacced the frozen pop up - but it looks like it may have stained the headliner and the seat.

Any suggestions how to clean that up when it gets warmer? I am really upset about it - the truck is less than 2 months old and looks like crap on the inside now.

*depressed*

coke zero doesn't have sugar right? That's probably a very good thing as far as cleaning it.

No sugar. But at the moment, it looks like it's stained... But it is too cold to actually try washing it at the moment... It's like -22c outside right now with a blizzard warning for tonight and tomorrow. Fun.

run to walmart and get yourself something called Folex. its in the cleaning supply aisle. it is the best, safest, and cheapest cleaner out there. amazing.

be careful with the headliner, if you scrub it too hard, it could/fray/ball and detach the glue. just blot the headliner.

Thanks, I will try that as soon as the deep freeze is over.
I could really smack myself around for forgetting that pop back there. Damnit.

I think you might be lucky...no sugar should be easy cleanup. Any mild carpet cleaner or similar should work. Just be careful on the headliner like he said above. I think they are normally cardboard, so no rough scrubbing and try to get it only damp, not wet.

NEVER saturate a foam backed headliner; the foam will seperate from the backing and or material, especially if it has aged. Use a product called "Tuff Stuff" multi-purpose foam cleaner (Wal-Mart or any auto parts stores). Apply the foam and let set a few minutes (foam will lift the cola out of the material), then use a shop vac to suck up the foam/cola mix being careful to not let the suction "pull" too much on the headliner material. The carpet and upholstery can be cleaned the same way, being generous with the foam, working it into the material with a very SOFT natural bristle brush (never use a stiff brush on upholstery since it will damage it), then use the shop vac to remove all the residue. The key is to use a shop vac/carpet cleaner to remove whatever cleaning solution from the material being cleaned. Been in the auto restoration / detailing business since 1982 and have found this to be fool proof.

Is taking it into a professional detailer an option for you? May be a better option than to risk more damage. They would likely be able to return it to like new condition depending on the cost.

Well, there is a lesson to be learned here: Always drink on New Years Eve, and let someone ELSE do the driving!
