From the toilet bowl to stains in clothes
Get some cola in your house! Even if you’re not a fan of the liquid gold, this soda can also be used as a cleaning agent. The high acidity in cola makes it perfect for cleaning everyday household items. We’ve put together a list.
1. Oil stains
Does your car or motor leak? That can lead to ugly stains on the driveway or in the garage. Hard scrubbing won’t be necessary if you throw some cola on the stain. Let it sit for a few hours and mop up the oil with ease!
2. Pen marks
Whether you’ve gone off the paper while writing or the children have been drawing on the carpet again, we all know those annoying pen marks. Fortunately, cola can also lend a hand here. Put a little bit of the soda on the stain and rub it in. Then use some water with soap on the stain and it will disappear like soft snow in the sun.
3. Cleaning your toilet
An old but golden tip: pour half a bottle of coke in the toilet. Let it sit for an hour and then flush. Get rid of any staining with a toilet brush and voilà, your toilet will be spick and span.
4. Getting rid of rust
Small rusted objects can be left overnight in a glass of cola. Wipe them off with a clean cloth the next day and you’ll see them shining like new. This is also good to know when cleaning your bike. Pour some cola on a rusty frame and wipe it off with ease.
5. Burnt pans
Did you accidentally leave the meal on the stove a little too long? This can result in disgusting, burnt pans. It is impossible to clean them. You will save a lot of time and energy by pouring a can of cola into the pan. Return the pan to low heat and simmer for an hour. You can then wash the pan as usual and the dirt will come off much easier.
