We should have known about these cola tips long before now! We love having a nice, cold glass of cola every now and then. Of course, we know we shouldn’t indulge too often, because of the large amount of sugar that soda contains. Are you having some coke leftover in the fridge? Then keep reading because we have got some amazing tips for you! It is possible to make use of coke for all kinds of things!
The amount of things you can do around the house with cola is truly unbelievable!
Removing chewing gum from hair
How it happens is beyond us, but somehow it is more common than you’d expect: having a piece of chewing gum stuck in your hair. Gross! Simply fill a bowl with coke and put the piece of hair with the chewing gum in it. Let this sit for a while and you will observe how easy it is to remove the gum.
Descale your kettle
Does your kettle seem a little worse for wear because of all the limescale in it? Simply pour some coke in the kettle and turn it on. Pour the hot coke down the drain and rinse your kettle before using.
Cleaning the toilet
It is not exactly a fun chore though: stubborn limescale in your toilet is difficult to get rid of. Wondering about the solution? Pouring a can of coke into the toilet! Let it soak for an hour, scrub the bowl with the toilet brush and then flush it. This will make the acid in the drink to remove all of the stubborn limescale from the toilet bowl.
Burnt pots or pans
It occurs to the best of us: burning food in one of our best pots or pans. A nasty, black burn stays behind in your pot and it is usually a bit difficult to clean. Do you want to save yourself some scrubbing? Add some cola to the pot, let it soak for a couple of hours and then wash the pot like you normally would. The burn will be gone!
Marinating your dishes with cola? It seems strange, isn’t it? But it is delicious! You could try a satay marinade, or a chicken or pork marinade – the possibilities are limitless actually!
