[dropcap]C[/dropcap]oca-Cola is an adored product all over the world, and one of the biggest brands in the history of consumer products. However, it can cause harm to your body as it is associated with diseases like cardiac arrest, stroke, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, etc. and is especially bad for young children as it interferes with the balanced diet, rather than complementing it.
Here are some 20 jaw dropping and unusual uses for Coca-Cola will blow you away:
Kill pests in your garden
Not only humans love Coca-Cola! Pesky bugs and insects are fans of the soda drink too. Hence Coca-Cola is an effective pest control method for your garden. To rid yourself of plant munching slugs, snails and what-not, pour a small bowl of Coca-Cola and place it near your garden or flowerbeds. The smell will attract these crawling bugs to the bowl and the drink’s acidity will kill them.
Clean your pans
Coca-Cola is also useful in the kitchen, especially on burnt pans. For any pan with burnt on messes, pour a can of Coke into the pan and simmer. The mess should easily wipe away. You can also soak kettles and other kitchen items in Coca-Cola to remove scale and build up.
Remove rust from your car
Coca-Cola is also useful when removing rust. The simplest method is to dip crumpled tinfoil in Coca-Cola, then give the item a scrub and you should be rust free.
Loosen rusty bolts
Similarly, use Coca-Cola to loosen up a rusty bolt. Simply unscrew the bolt half a turn and pour on Coca-Cola. Let it sit, then give the metal a wipe. The bolt and screws will be one hundred percent in no time.
Remove stains from your fabric
Surprisingly, Coca-Cola is incredibly helpful when removing stains from clothing and fabric. Coke will easily remove grease stains, as well as blood spots. Remember that Coca-Cola itself is brown, so stains on light fabrics might be better removed another way.
Remove oil spots
Another way to use Coca-Cola is to remove oil stains from cement. Whether it’s your garage or your driveway, soak the stain in Coca-Cola for a few hours then hose off.
