20 uses for Coca-Cola

I'm reading more and more things about Coca-Cola, and it's many uses around the house. These things are popping up all over the internet. And just last night while I was uploading some things to Pinterest, I come across half a dozen of these things.So today, I'm going to see just how much I can find out about this. If Coca-Cola can clean it, you'll find it here.:)

* These are all done with the Regular Coca-Cola. (Not Diet or flavored Coke.)
If used, the others will be specified.

1. Coca-Cola is said to remove Jelly Fish Stings. Simply pour the Coke over the sting.

2. Coca-Cola is said to control diarrhea. Take a two-liter bottle of Coke and take the cap off allowing it to go flat and become room temperature. Drink one glass every hour until the problem is gone. (Usually two hours.)

3. You can pour a bottle of coke into your toilet, let it stand for an hour, then flush clean.

4. Coca-Cola cures hiccups. Gargle with a mouthful and it is said to stop hiccups immediately.

5. Coca-Cola is said to remove road haze from your windshield.

6. Keep your tires dirt free. Wash your tires and dry the rims as usual. Then dip a rag into some Coke and rub onto your tires.Your tires will be black and the dirt won't stick to them.

7. Coke distributors use it to clean the engines of their trucks!

8. If your dog gets shiny worn pads from too much walking or agility, soak the pads in coke for twenty minutes. The pads become rough again.

9. Get an awesome Tan with Coca-Cola. Just spray or rub it onto your skin before laying out. Get into the shower afterward and wash off the Coke. You will notice that your tan is deeper and darker! This is said to last six to eight months!

10. You can clean corroded battery terminals by pouring Coke over them.

11. Coca-Cola can be used to clean your backyard grill. Remove the wire rack from your grill, pour Coke over it and let stand for about an hour. Wipe off with a wet rag.

12.  Diet Coca-Cola can fade hair dye and sometimes even remove it. Just pour the coke over your hair and let it stand a few minutes before washing.

13. In many states, the Highway patrol carries a couple of gallons of Coke in their trunk to clean blood from the highway after an accident.

14. You can mix a teaspoon of Coca-Cola into your favorite lotion. It is said to keep your skin from being dry and it lasts for days!

15. Add a bottle of Coke to your pre-wash cycle to remove grease stains and all odors from clothing. Just pre-wash with Coke, then wash as usual.

16. You can remove oil stains from your driveway by pouring Coca-Cola on them then hosing off.

17. For a greener lawn, spray Coca-Cola on it once a month. Your grass will now be greener and healthier than your neighbors!

18. It is said that you can place hard boiled eggs into a bowl of coke for a few minutes, it makes the shells easier to peel. If you let the eggs sit in the Coke for longer, it will eat the shells right off the eggs! (Not really sure about this one. I think I will have to try it.)

19. Before washing your car, pour coke onto the windshield. It removes the bugs and road film. No need to scrub!

20. Clean you electric coffee maker by pouring a Coke into your decanter then filling it the rest of the way with water. Run this through the brew cycle. Then run fresh water through.

I have always been a Coke fan. Now I'm wondering how safe this stuff is to drink...
