Planning a party? Cola, or a range of fizzy soft drinks for that matter, are usually found on the shopping list. Perfect for washing down snacks or providing the little ones with a special treat, soft drinks are a crowd favourite for good reason. However, with all the fun to be had at such social occasions, it’s not uncommon for cups to knock over and spillages to occur. If you’re wondering, “does cola stain?”, the answer is yes. But, thanks to Vanish, it’s easy to get cola and soft drink stains out of clothes.

For the best results on whites, we suggest using Vanish Oxi Action Powder or Vanish Oxi Action Liquid. The formula can remove stains, eliminate odours and give whiter whites even after 50 washes!*

Or use Vanish Oxi Action Powder or Vanish Oxi Action Liquid for coloured clothes. Both the powder and liquid have multi-power properties, so they keep colours bright while also removing stains and odours.

Simply pre-treat or use in the wash to remove cola stains from all your favourite items.

How to get cola out of clothes

Vanish Oxi Action Powder

Vanish Oxi Action Powder


  1. Add one scoop (60g) to 4L of water.
  2. Soak whites for 6 hours max.
  3. Soak colours for 1 hour max.
  4. Wash as usual with your detergent and add another scoop for tough stains!


Time is key – to prevent the stain from absorbing into the fibres, tackle the spill as soon as possible. Grab a clean damp cloth and use a blotting motion to soak up as much of the cola, so you have more chance at successful removing it.
