Cleaning with Cola? Absolutely!

Sure an ice cold cola is refreshing, but the bubbly drink can help you clean up messes all around your house.

If you have cooked on crud, pour some cola into the pan, and bring it to a boil. The carbonation and heat will loosen that mess in no time. The same procedure will remove lime scale from the inside of your teapot. Just pour in cola and bring to a boil.

Sluggish Drain

Pour some cola down there. It will bubble and fizz away greasy build-up keeping your drains flowing smoothly.

Greasy Clothes
Cola is also a great de-greaser; pour over a load of greasy work clothes, on a greasy stain in your garage or even a nasty spill in the kitchen. It will break up the grease so it is easy to clean away.

Rusty Bolt
If you need to remove a rusty bolt, cola to the rescue, it will loosen the corrosion in no time! It will also clean rust off of all sorts of other metal surfaces. Pour a little on a scrubbing pad and go to work, the rust will disappear.

Stained Toilet
Pour a can of cola down your toilet. Wait an hour and scrub away those stubborn stains.

Can you believe a simple can of cola can do all this? Who knew? I'm Mrs. FIXIT and it's just that simple!
