Uses for Coca Cola

I remember as a child my daddy stopping at the filling station (yes, I’m that old) and buying a Coke to clean the car windshield. Reflecting on that experience and reading about the many uses of Coke other than drinking, I thought it would be fun to share my top 5 household cleaning uses for Coca Cola.

Uses for Coca Cola

1. Pour one can of Coke into the toilet. Let it sit for an hour and flush for a clean toilet.


2. Laundry Degreaser: Pour one can of Coke in the washing machine with detergent. Toss in greasy or heavily soiled clothes and launder as usual.


3. Coke makes an excellent window cleaner. This is especially useful for car windows which can get tough buildups of road gunk. Pour a can of coke over the windshield and rub with a washing cloth. Wipe off with a damp cloth to remove sticky residue.


4. To remove the black film on the bottom of a pot from burned on food the black and restore your pot to new, pour in a can of coke (or as much as you need to cover the blackened area by an inch) and put it on the stove on a low heat for half hour; wash the pot as normal.

5. Remove rust by soaking the rusted item in coke and scrubbing with a textured cloth. This also works well with rust spots on chrome objects such as faucets.
