After reading this, you may not want to drink Coca-Cola ever again. But with as much as 9 1/2 teaspoons of sugar in one can of Coca-Cola and cancer-causing aspartame in Coke Zero, never taking a sip of the sugary soda is not such a bad idea. While you don’t want to drink Coca-Cola, you will want it for this surprising use: cleaning. Here’s how.
1. Clean burnt pans
Soak grease-burnt pans in a Coca-Cola bath and watch as the stubborn bits and pieces slide away, says Collective Evolution.
2. Clean kitchen countertops
Wet a cloth with Coca-Cola and use it to quickly clean kitchen countertops, says Remedies and Herbs.
3. Clean tile grout
You would think the color of Coca-Cola would cause the liquid to stain your floor, but according to Collective Evolution, you can use it to clean tile grout. Simply pour Coca-Cola onto your kitchen floor, let it soak in for a few minutes and then wipe it up with a cloth or paper towel.
4. Polish silver
Soak tarnished silver in Coca-Cola for several minutes. Rinse and then wipe it away. Remedies and Herbs explains that Coca-Cola loosens the dirt and stains the buildup on silver.
5. Clean tarnished copper
Shine your Moscow mule mugs with a cloth dipped in Coca-Cola, says Remedies and Herbs. The acid will dissolve the stain right away.
6. Descale a kettle
Boil Coca-Cola in your electric kettle to descale the kettle, recommends Remedies and Herbs. After the Coca-Cola has boiled for a few minutes, scrub the kettle and rinse before using it again.
7. Clean a toilet
WikiHow has a thorough guide with tips for properly cleaning your toilet bowl using Coca-Cola. Pour a single can of soda around the rim and over all stains. Let the Coca-Cola sit for a minimum of one hour, and then flush the toilet. Repeat the process as needed until all stains disappear.
8. Clean an oil spill
If your driveway looks like a getaway crime scene, pour a bottle of Coca-Cola directly onto the oil spill. Allow it to soak in for a few hours, as recommended by Clean My Space. Lastly, use a hose to rinse away the Coca-Cola.
