Does Club Soda Really Remove Stains?


You've heard your mother say "pour some club soda on it!" But does that really work?

The Drycleaning and Laundry Institute (DLI) recently did an in-depth study about the facts behind the club soda stain myth. All in all, they found that club soda DOES indeed work better than regular water at removing new stains on garments.

HOWEVER, although the stain appeared to be gone, the DLI found, during further testing, that residues left by the stain, not removed by the club soda, can lead to a permanent stain on the garment if not further treated by a dry cleaning professional.
