Coca-Cola: It’s More Than Just a Satisfying Caffeine Fix

I don’t have any doubts that you at least know of Coca-Cola. Honestly, you’ve probably taken a swig of the bubbly, mood maker. Personally, Diet Coke is my soda of choice, I could drink it with every meal. I don’t, but I could! Don’t worry, I won’t judge you if you prefer Pepsi. In fact, I like Pepsi in the same way that I like Coke. I’m an equal opportunity soda drinker. Anyway, there’s no secret that Coca-Cola isn’t the healthiest choice of drink. However, it can be used for more than just consuming. You would be surprised to know what else you can do with Coca-Cola. Coke is an ideal household cleaner. It’s cheaper than most other chemical cleaners. However, it’s not a natural household cleaner. All of that aside, Coke is so much more than a caffeine kick.

Coca-Cola Can Clean Coins

Coke is a great alternative to chemical cleaning products. In fact, it can clean even the most random of items. If you have rusty coins lying around, then you can soak them in Coke. Pennies are the most common coin that gets dirty. Whether its rust or dirt, pennies catch it all. However, Coca-Cola can clean anything off of them. If you’re a coin collector, then you may want to try this the next time that you want to refresh an old coin. Also, it’s a great way to get rid of rust, in general. So, the next time that you have rusty screws that you want to clean or loosen from an object, try using Coca-Cola!

Get Rid of Toilet Bowl Lines

That’s right, Coke is great at getting rid of pesky toilet bowl lines without using chemicals. You need to use it the same way that you would any other toilet bowl cleaner. First, pour the Coca-Cola into the bowl. It’s best to try and let it drop down the rim. That way it can get under the bowl. Next, let the Coke sit for at least an hour. It takes time for the acid to break down the stain. Then, clean the toilet with a toilet bowl brush. Lastly, flush the residue down the toilet and admire your bright, porcelain toilet bowl.

Remove Difficult Stains

Lemons aren’t the only thing that can get rid of difficult stains. Have you ever spilled milk or a dairy product all over your nice, shirt? Well, if you have, then you’re not alone. It’s hard to get rid of dairy stains. Especially big ones. However, Coke is an ideal way to remove those types of stains. Soak the stain with Coca-Cola for five minutes. Then, wash your clothes like you normally would. Finally, your shirt should be as good as new when it comes out of the washing machine!

Clean Car Batteries

Doing anything with your car can be risky and nerve-wracking. However, you might not need to worry about cleaning your car battery. The acid within Coke doesn’t affect the battery acid. In fact, this helps it to clean corroded batteries. It’s a cheap and easy way to maintain the integrity of your car!


In conclusion, Coca-Cola can be used to clean a number of different things in your house. However, it’s able to clean a corroded battery, then what does that acid do inside your stomach. Many people argue that the fact that Coke can clean items means that it’s unhealthy for you and shouldn’t be consumed. Overall, Coca-Cola is known the have a strange effect on your body. Despite it all, I’m still going to drink it in moderation!
