    I was just putting the binding on my neices quilt for her baby shower tomorrow and my husband thought he would be helpful and bring me a diet coke. Long story short he spilled some of it on the quilt in a large area. I ran it up to the washer immediately even though the binding wasn't done and threw it in but it isn't washing out. I pulled it out after the wash cycle and it still was there so now I have it soaking. Anyone out there know what I should wash it in to get the coke out?

    Diet Coke should not have left a stain. Was there anything else with it?

    I agree with Oxyclean, or maybe try vinegar or club soda.

    Diet coke, diet pepsi, any thing with that carmel color will stain. I agree with Murphy but if that doesn't work maybe shout or goop (used to clean hands with, I use it for everything!)

    It was just diet coke in a glass with ice. I thought that since I flew up the stairs and got it in the water right away that it would just rinse out but it didn't. Of course the back is white with pastel polka dots so it shows really well. It kind of sprayed across half the quilt! I did put a little laundry soap in the washer perhaps that set the stain? I am going up right now to see if I have any Oxy clean . I just want to scream.

    Seems to me there have been alot of helpful dear husband posts on here...that cause something to be spilled on quilt projects or have washed a quilt that they shouldn't have. If it were my situation , I would lock the sewing door and make the sewing area off limits to everyone.

    I am soaking it with Oxyclean right now. If that doesn't work I am going to try the peroxide. Do I use it straight and dab it on the stain or dilute it?

    If I teach someone to quilt or something, that's the first thing I tell them. No food or drinks near the quilt. I've had too many accidents myself. I really feel for you. It's even worse when it almost completely done. If it would of just been the top, you might of been able to replace pieces. I do hope it comes out for you.
