Once upon a time I head a couple of cans of coke in my yarn stash bin, fully content on consuming them.  (Yes, I have to hid food from my family or else I only get 2 cookies out of the 4 dozen cookies I've baked.)  Today I discovered that one has ruptured and slowly leaked.  Only about a 5th of the bin was affected, most of it acrylic.  But a few precious all wool skeins were hit and I'm completely heart broken.  I'm not worried about hand rinsing the acrylic and setting it to dry.  The wool though I'm terrified I'm just going to felt into a cola stained knot.  Any suggestions oh wiser knitters?  Can I save my yarn?

If you hand wash/rinse the wool in cold water wound into hanks and let it air dry, it should be fine. Just be careful not to agitate it in the water too much or it will felt. Just kind of swish it around, changing the water when it gets too mucky. Hope you save your yarn!

I don't think you would have a problem getting the soda out, it's just if it stains. Unfortunately, I think this is just an instance that all you can do is clean one batch and see how it is when it dries :/
