Coca-cola is the most well-known brand in the history of brands and products, and surveys show that it is the second most popular word in the world after “hello”—imagine that! If it is the second most common term in the world, then practically everyone in the world must have Coca-Cola with them at all times—this is a frightening reality because it is now scientifically proved that Cola drinks are extremely harmful to your health. Because the acidity level of the chemical cocktail you drink for refreshment equals the acidity level of the battery acid, it is effectively killing your metabolism. This stomach lining-killing chemical has been linked to cardiac arrest, stroke, asthma, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Here are a list of uncommon things you can do with Cola drinks. Leave a comment and tellus what weird stuff you’ve used with Coke or any Cola drink.
10. Pesticide in the Fields
In India, some farmers use coca-cola instead of pesticides for pest termination, because it’s cheaper and the result is totally rewarding. It is said that the high sugar content of the drinks can make them efficient in fighting pests, which is of course denied by the company since they say that there is nothing in the drink that can be used as a pesticide. But the technique is an in-vogue trend in the Indian farming scenario.
9. Rust Fighter
If you want to get rid of the gross rust then dip that object into a mug full of fresh coke or if the object is too big then soak a cloth in coke and try to rub the rust out. The phosphoric acid in the drink will cause the corrosion process and the rust will loosen and can be easily taken off from the affected object.
8. Dish Washer
If your pots are all blackened, pour some of the wonder fizzes into them and let it sit for a few minutes. The chemicals in the drink will fight the grime and loosen it, then you can easily scrub it out and your pots will again be clean and shiny!
7. Pain Neutralizer
Some say if you have been bitten by a bug, stung by a bee, or a jellyfish then you do not have to panic in pain, just pour some of the dark fizzy drink on the affected area and your pain will be neutralized in seconds, thanks to the chemicals in Coca-cola.
6. Gum Remover
If gum sticks to your hair and you think that the only way to get rid of it is to get an unwanted haircut then you do not have to worry anymore! Just pour some coke on the gum and let it sit for a few minutes, you will see that it becomes easier for you to pick that gum off your hair.
5. Color Fader
You can use the drink on your hair if you dyed your hair many shades darker than you wanted. Coke is known for its quality of fading the color on hair; so the next time your hair gets dyed in a disastrous way, do not panic or run off to your expensive stylist but in fact open the refrigerator and grab that Coke can and let it do the work!
4. Bug Slayer
All kinds of bugs are big Coke fans like us—they simply love the sweet fizzy wonder but without knowing that it can destroy them and they will be pushing up daisies if they try to consume it. You can spray the drink on ant hills and cockroaches in your cupboards and get rid of them!
3. Window Cleaner
By now we know that Coke has magic cleaning powers—one more thing that it can clean efficiently is a window. Because of the presence of citric acid in the drink, it makes a wonderful window cleaner and works the same way as citrus fruit-based window cleaners work.
2. Stubborn Stains
Stains are a thing if you don’t want to buy really expensive stain removers, take some of that Coke and pour it in the wash along with the detergent. The stains will be removed and your clothes will be deodorized! All thanks to the carbonic and phosphoric acid inside the carbonated drink.
1. Toilet Cleaner
Cleaning the toilet is the most tedious of the tasks and let’s be honest, no one really wants to do it—no one but your friendly fizzy partner Coke. All you have to do is pour the drink in the commode and wait for an hour before you scrub with a brush and flush—now you have got yourself a sparkling toilet!
