Coca Cola cleans! Yes, you read that right, our cleaning tip of the month revolves around Coca Cola! At some point or another we’ve been told that Coke is bad for our teeth because it is not only full of sugar, but is acidic. That acidity is what makes it such a great, yet unexpected, cleaning agent. Here are a couple ways that Coke can be used around the house:
1) Driveway stains. For stubborn stains that just refuse to leave, you can pour a can or bottle of Coca Cola over it and let it sit for a few hours. You can then use a hose and rinse it all off.
2) Rust. Coca Cola is full of acid, which means it does a fantastic job of removing rust from a variety of materials such as golf clubs or pennies.
3) Corrosion. On occasion, car batteries will get a build up of corrosion that impedes connection and can cause your car to not start. No worries! After ensuring your vehicle is off, you can pour a can of Coke onto the battery connections to remove the corrosion and your car will start again!
4) Toilets. Bathroom cleaning is always the worst, but by simply pouring a can of Coke into your toilet, letting it sit, and flushing it away you can get it clean without having to do the dirty work.
