Coca-Cola is a versatile beverage that can be enjoyed on its own, but did you know that it has some surprising alternative uses? Here are 20 unusual ways you can utilize Coca-Cola that you might have never considered:
Coca-Cola’s acidic properties can help break down rust from metal surfaces. Soak the rusty object in Coca-Cola or scrub it with a Coca-Cola-soaked cloth.
Pour Coca-Cola into the toilet bowl and let it sit for some time. The carbonation and acidity of the cola can help dissolve stains and build-up. Scrub the bowl and flush to reveal a cleaner surface.
Soak old, tarnished coins in Coca-Cola overnight. The acid in the cola can help remove dirt and restore their shine. Rinse the coins with water afterward.
If you have gum stuck in your hair, clothing, or other surfaces, pour Coca-Cola on the affected area. The cola’s acid content can help break down the gum, making it easier to remove.
Apply Coca-Cola to grout lines between tiles and let it sit for a few minutes. Scrub the grout with a brush to remove dirt and stains. Rinse with water afterward.
Remove grease stains:
Pre-treat greasy clothing stains by pouring Coca-Cola directly onto the affected area. Let it sit for a while, then wash the garment as usual. The cola can help break down grease for easier removal.
