For many of us, Coca-Cola is a refreshing soft drink.  But did you know there is a lot you can do with a fizzy high fructose corn syrup?

There are upwards of 40 unusual uses for Coca-Cola that you can find at, but here are a few of my favorites!

  • First.. you can use it on your hair!  Use Coca-Cola as an alternative conditioner to de-gunk your hair and boost it’s shine.  Coca-Cola also removes gum! If gum gets stuck in your hair, soak your strands in a bowl of Coca-Cola for a few minutes and you can pull the gum out.
  • Coca-Cola can also be used to clean corroded metal.  MythBusters proved that you can use cola to clean a penny, by removing grime and leaving a lovely shine.  Coca-Cola will also make your chrome sparkle.  Pour soda over the rusty area then use aluminum foil to buff out the blemishes!
  • Here’s one I would have not thought of.  You can use Coca-Cola to create a super secret lawn tonic to make your grass extra gorgeous.  This technique involves a strange combination of soda, beer, dishwashing soap, ammonia and mouthwash.  Sounds weird, but apparently it works!
  • It also works to clean burnt pans.  For tough, caked on messes and burnt pots or pans, pour a can of Coke into the dirty pan until it reaches the top of the stain line,  bring it to a boil and let simmer for 15 minutes then wash the grime off.

Check out the full list and feel free to try them and let me know if they actually work!
