Coca-Cola may be the world's favorite sugary beverage. But what many don't know is that it's good for so much more than just a boost of caffeine. Here are 10 uses for Coca Cola which will have you stockpiling bottles in every room.
1. Pest Killer
Coca-Cola is known to kill slug, snails and other small pests. While the sugar attracts them, the acid in the liquid quickly proves fatal to them. This use for Coke is so popular that some farmers in India spray their farms with it instead of regular pesticides.
2. Toilet Bowl Cleaner
The use of Coca-Cola as a toilet bowl cleaner has been an open secret for years. Do you have a dirty toilet? Just pour a can of Coke in the bowl, let it sit for an hour or so and flush to reveal a surprisingly sparkling toilet.
3. Gum Remover
Getting gum stuck in your hair is one of the most unpleasant experiences you can have. Many of us could have avoided an unfortunate haircut if we knew Coke was a solve-all solution.
To free yourself from this sticky situation, make sure the drink is cold and then pour it in the affected parts of your hair. The acid will neutralize the chewing gum, making it easy for you to simply extract it from your head.
4. Coca-Cola Wings
Coca-Cola wings are a popular delicacy in China. In fact, so many people love this recipe that it's been given the stamp of approval by the drink-makers themselves. Preparing them involves mixing Coke with ingredients like brown sugar, onions and garlic. You can find the recipe for it here, on the company's website.
