Some of us are crazy fans of aerated cola drinks and have a lot of it with almost every meal or atleast once a day. But these cola drinks are also used and make great cleaners so are you sure you want to drink it? If you want to you could restrict your consumption to a glass or two every week. Instead of drinking coke, use it for cleaning tiles, pans and more. 


Defrosting The Windshield

Cola is interestingly excellent for defrosting your windscreen, a problem you face the most in the wintertime. Pour it liberally over the windscreen and leave it on for a minute. If you live in icy regions then all that ice will turn to slush and can easily be removed.

Clean Your Pans

While cooking in case you have burnt the pans, use cola and be amazed. Pour the can into the pan and simmer for a bit, this will loosen the grime in the pan and all you have to do is wipe it off. 

Rust Removal From Nuts & Bolts

Your nuts and bolts accumulate a lot of rust over time and then they tend to become useless. However, there is a solution to that as well. All you have to do is take a mug and fill it halfway with cola. Throw in the bolts and leave it for 20 minutes. Take the bolts out and then wipe them off. You will see a lot of difference. 

Stain Removal

Some greasy stains and even blood spots are difficult to get rid off. This is where cola comes in. But use this remedy only if the cloth is dark in colour as the cola colour is also dark and your whites and light colours could get stains.  

Garden Pests

If you have a garden, pests are an issue. So in order to control the situation, it is best to use cola. Those slugs and snails can ruin your plants and vegetables that you have been trying to grow so if you are okay with killing them, all you have to do is place bowls full of cola near your garden or flowers. The smell attracts these bugs and the acidity in the drink will kill them.

Remove Oil Spots

Oil stains on the cement can be easily removed. All you have to do is soak the stain in cola for atleast 2-3 hours and then hose it off.
