17 Uses For Coca-Cola




 Cleaning with Coca-Cola #DIY #Cleaners

The great thing about a product like Coca-Cola is that many of us either have it in our homes or can purchase it for great price. Coca-Cola has so many uses beyond drinking that it is great to have handy in your home.

Here is a list below on many uses for your home.

  1. Removes rust and loosens rusty bolts.
  2. Cleans oil stains from garage floors. Just pour cola on and then rinse.
  3. Kills slugs and snails. The acid kills them.
  4. Cleans burnt pans. Let pan soak in cola and then rinse them.
  5. Descales a kettle. Same method as burnt pans.
  6. Removes blood stains from fabric and clothing.
  7. Clean car battery terminals by pouring a small amount of cola over each one.
  8. Makes pennies shine. Soaking old pennies in cola will remove tarnish.
  9. Cleans tile grout. Pour on kitchen floor and then mop it up.
  10. Removes gum from hair.  Dip hair in a bowl of cola and leave for a few minutes.
  11. Removes stains from china.
  12. Remove or fade dye from hair by pouring diet Cola over it.
  13. Remove marker stains from the carpet.  Pour cola over it and scrub. And then clean with soapy water.

How To Freshen Your Mattress and Remove Dust Mites

[sam id=”12″ codes=”true”]

My youngest son Spencer is 8 years old and we found out in the summer he is allergic to cats (which we have one) and Dust Mites!

Dust Mites live around your home and eat the dead skin that we shred. (It isn’t something I personally want to even think about living in or around my home.)

I wanted to find an natural way to remove them at least from the mattress. One way to remove them from the bed sheets is to wash all bedding and stuff animals in hot water in the washing machine.

But for the mattresses in our home I went to Google to locate a way to do it a natural way. The one I liked the best was with baking soda. Pour 1 cup of baking soda in a plastic container or mason jar, add 4 drops of essential oil. (either lavender, eucalyptus or peppermint) put a lid on container and shake it up good. Then with a sifter or small strainer stand near your bed and pour a small amount in the sifter and spread it along your bed. Repeat until the bed is covered. If you get clumps spread them out with your hand. Then leave it for 15 mins. Come back and vacuum hose, vacuum up the bed top and sides of the bed until baking soda is all gone. This wont kill them but will remove many of them.

Also essential oil is a good deterrent to dust mites and the oil adds a nice scent to the room! It is a great non-toxic way to help someone that is allergic to dust mites as well.

You can do this monthly or more often if you wish.

Happy Cleaning!
