There’s nothing better than popping open a refreshing can of Coke on a hot day.
But the classic soda is good for so much more than quenching your thirst: it can be used for cooking, in beauty regimens, and even for pool maintenance.
From defrosting windshields to making better brownies, read on for 13 bizarre things you can do with a can of Coke.
TEXTURIZE HAIR: Model Suki Waterhouse recently admitted she rinses her hair with Coca-Cola to give it more texture. It also gives your hair some extra body and bounce, which is a plus as well.
CLEAN BURNED POTS: You can “unstick” burnt pots and pans . pouring in some Coke and bringing it to a boil. Take the pan off the heat and carefully use a scrubbing brush to stir the soda – the food should come right off.
MAKE PERFECT BROWNIES: Mixing a can of Diet Coke into a box of fudge brownie mix will make perfectly cooked, extra moist brownies.
REMOVE BLOOD STAINS: While the rumor that police use soda to get blood stains off highways is a myth, Coca-Cola is really effective at busting through blood stains – the show “MythBusters” even confirmed it.
GET GUM OUT OF HAIR: Pouring a little Coke over the gumwill help it slide right out of hair.
REMOVE PERMANENT MARKER FROM DRY ERASE BOARDS: If someone mistakenly used a permanent marker on a dry erase board, soak it in Coca-Cola for a few minutes and then wipe clean with a rag.
DEFROST WINDSHIELDS: Pour a can of Coke onto your car’s windshield if you’re out of windshield-wiper fluid or don’t have a scraper. Just avoid getting it on the paint, since the corrosive soda can ruin the paint job.
CLEAN POOLS: A few sites say that if you pour two two-liter bottles of Coca-Cola into your pool, you’ll notice a significant change in your pool’s appearance for the better once the pool has cleaned out the soda. No more iron or rust stains!
CLEAN CAR BATTERIES: If your car battery is looking corrosive, you can clean it with Coke. Since Coca-Cola is a mild acid and the corrosion is a mild alkali, it causes a chemical . and removes the corrosion.
KILL SKUNK ODORS: Though tomato juice works better, Coke is an effective skunk odor remover. Rub the soda into your hair and skin and let sit for a few minutes. Then rinse off with soap and water. This will also work well for any skunked animals.
MAINTAIN LAWNS: Combine a can of regular (read: not Diet) Coke with a can of beer, dish washing soap, household ammonia, and a cup of mouthwash, and put it in a 10-gallon hose-end sprayer to dilute the mixture. Spraying this on your lawn a few times a week will keep it green and thick.
MAKE CUPCAKES: Combine Diet Coke with a box of chocolate cake mix – it will fizz at first, but don’t freak out. Pour the batter into a cupcake pan and cook for about 20 minutes. Top with powdered sugar.
MAKE CHICKEN DRUMSTICKS: This recipe only takes three ingredients: Coke, soy sauce, and chicken wings. Throw everything in a slow cooker and set it on low for six hours. Once the wings are tender, pour the leftover liquid into a pot, simmer it down to a glaze, and then pour over wings.
