Welcome to the forums momto4

Sorry about the photo

I don't think there's anything you can do to *clean* the photo. Definitely get the picture scanned before trying anything.

If the photo is precious to you I would suggest someone who restores photos could do this for you.

Photographs when made are rinsed in water to remove the chemicals and a quick rinse in room temperature water may do it for you.
However, the drink may have already damaged the imulsion as most soft drinks are acidic.
Surely do what DIYaddict suggested and scan it first.
