Red cola drink exploded stained light headliner. help

A red colored soft drink exploded in my wife's car. (I know). Car has a light colored headliner. Suggestions. I am afraid it might smear and the stain become larger if I don't do it right. Any detailing guys here. The stains are small and I do not want to worsen the look or make it larger.

Try misting it with water and using an absorbent towel to... absorb the soda.

So??? Did you try the K-K??? Just beacuse I did in the meantime, was plenty of brown and clear pop spills in my car from lending it last summer.

Worked great and even took a lot of the old coffee spills from the notoriously hard to clean grey GM carpets. 2-3 years old spills that had defeated earlier attempts.

Holy crap! I always thought red pop was theee worst and basically indelable? If the K-K really works, can anybody else vouch for this?

If so, this could be the best thing since duct tape, WD-40, Dupont Lube w/ Teflon, and synth oil put together?

I can vouch for the K-K on motorcycle related stuff. Impossible to find in Canada so bought mine in Juneau AK. On my list again for next week in Spokane but I need the other K-K stuff with Phosphoric Acid in it, says "the must for rust" on the label and sure works good on greasy rusty motorcycle frames. And yes very very very dirty cast Aluminium.

The picture shows the best thing I have used for stained carpets, it may work or not for you, but will not worsen the stains if you follow the instructions.

I would locate and contact a local car-detailing business that has a steam machine if this fails.

^I've also had excellent results with Tuff Stuff cleaning dirty interiors.
I can't say specifically regarding your stains, but it's worth a try and definitely KLR-friendly (CHEAP).

It has baked on as I was not told for a few days. I used some purple power followed by wool light and it took most out. Thanks for the help

Get it at your local Hispanic store. We call it magic soap.
