It’s impossible that information that Coke is bad to you has not reached to you by now. Basically, it’s already common knowledge that this soft drink doesn’t go soft on your body and your health. It’s enough to ‘google’ Coke and you will find tons of articles that warn you about how it will wreck your teeth and cause you stomach problems. Probably the most popular one is the experiment where you combine Mentos with Coke and you get an explosive result.

What you probably don’t know is that Coke can be a terrific cleanser for say, oil stains. It’s probably true that Coke is not the best thing for your health, but it can be the best thing for your house. This beverage can be a cheap, quick way to get rid of unpleasant stains.

We came up with 15 reasons why Coke is good for you; none of them includes actually drinking it. But wait ‘til you see what Coke can do for your house!


          1. Clean Oil Stains

Add Coke to the stained surface and let it soak for a couple of days. After that, remove the Coke with a wet cloth or something like that. If the stain isn’t gone yet, do it again until you are stain-free.

          2. Clean Blackened Pots

One of the most annoying types of stain is the black film that appears on your pots and simply won’t come off. It actually does come off without a sweat. Here is how: put around ½ l of Coke in the pot you want to clean and put it in the oven for an hour at minimum heat. The stain should come off afterwards if you clean it with a sponge.

          3. Remove Blood Stains

Blood stains are tough to get out; Coke can help you with them. Pour the drink on the fabric or leave the affected portion in a glass of Coke. After a few hours, wash it normally.

          4. Improve Your Lawn

Leave a Coke can open for about an hour, so the carbonation wears off. After that, add the liquid to the compost bin. That will make your usual fertilizer you use for your garden work more efficiently. You will only need a half of can of Coke per week to see the results.
