40 Uses For Coca-Cola

The list

1. Remove grease stains from clothing and fabric (I had to start there)

2. Remove rust; methods include using fabric dipped in Coke, a sponge or even aluminum foil. 

3. Remove blood stains from clothing and fabric.

4. Kill slugs and snails; a small bowl of Coke will attract them, the acid will kill them.

5. Clean oil stains from a garage floor; let the stain soak, hose off.

6. Loosen a rusty bolt; pour on some Coke and wait for the magic to happen.

7. Prevent an asthma attack! Apparently, the caffeine in two 12oz cans can prevent the onset of an attack.

8. Defrost a frozen windshield. Apply liberally and wait.

9. Cure nausea; let a can of Coke go flat then take a teaspoon of Coke every hour.

10. Also, flat coke can help relieve an upset stomach

15. Clean car battery terminals by pouring a small amount of Coke over each one.

16. Get rid of hiccups; gargle with a big mouthful of ice-cold Coke.
