    I just finished cutting my yard and wanted to go get something to drink. So i opened my truck and noticed red liquid everywhere!?! I was trying to figure out what it as when i saw it. A fucking can of big red soda exploded in my truck and is everywhere! Its on my seats, carpet, back windows, subs, cd-player, amp, front windshield, wtf that damn cloth over my head. I'm so pissed I can' even think of what it's called!?! That just goes to show you what Texas heat can do. Does anybody know how to get red stains out or should i just buckle down and pay for some cleaning service to bend me over and stick it to me?

    might as well pay couple of hundred dollars for them to detail your car because trust me these stains will never get off if you don't do it right...

    Getting it done by a pro won't hurt either, let them try it first then bring it back for free when they miss some spots.

    Had that happen once in one of my cars. Fortunately it was only ginger ale so nothing really got stained...just really sticky. I think the Mythbusters said soda cans can't get hot enough to explode in a car. You should see if they'll pick up your detailing tab. ;)

    Good luck with the cleaning!

    A friend had that happen in England - she had a can of coke that was in direct sunlight (just under the windshield). It made a BAAAAD mess.

    A soda exploding in your truck is one thing, but BIG RED!? Holy crap.:eek: I would take it to a detailer and let them work their magic.

    On another note, Big Red is some damn good stuff!:drool:

I spent probably an hour cleaning the FROZEN soda off the inside of my truck..I feel your pain.

    That sux man. I'd say just get it detailed and then go over it with a magnifying glass when you pick it up.

    Got it completely clean for $40!!! Paysto have a friend of the family in a carpet cleaning business. He was only gonna charge me $25. Didn't hurt coughing up the extra dough to have it look so orgasmic inside.

    Nah, didn't get any picks. Was too pissed to take out my camera. But damn it looks good. Now if I can just get these gray lil circles, from God knows what, off my paint. I'll probably take pics of those and ask ya'll guys for some help.
