    Just Soda... Or Is It?
    Coca-Cola has been around for over 100 years, since 1886. It was first used as medicine and was claimed to cure many ailments, including impotence. Through the years, Coca-Cola has become the most popular soft drink in the world, but, did you know it has other uses besides refreshing us on a hot day?

    Defrosting A Windshield
    Tired of scraping off that pesky ice from your windshield during winter? Simply pour a can of Regular Coke over it and wait. You'll be amazed!


    Jellyfish Sting
    Have you ever heard that the only way to soothe a jellyfish sting is to pee on it? This is not only gross, but untrue. Instead, pour some Coca-Cola over the sting. The relief will be almost instantaneous.


    Window Cleaner
    Coca-Cola contains citric acid, which makes it the perfect glass and window cleaner. No more harsh chemicals, just pour Coke over your windows and wipe them down with a moistened cloth.


    Car Battery Terminals
    The crud that accumulates around the terminals of your car battery can be removed by pouring Coke over them, letting it sit for a few minutes, and then hosing off the residue. For extra hard spots, simply use a sponge to rub off the gunk.


    Pesticide
    If you find your garden overrun by slugs and other bugs during the Spring and Summer months, pour some Coke into small containers and set them out in your yard. The sugar will attract the bugs and the acid in the Coke will kill them. This works on roaches too.

    Skunk Smell
    Once in a while you may find that you, or your pet, came too close to a skunk and got sprayed. Using tomato juice might be effective but it's messy and hard to clean. Instead, pour Coke all over yourself or your pet while in the shower, make sure to use a lot, so all areas are covered. Wait for a few minutes and then rinse off. You will smell fresh and clean once you're done, and so will your pet.


    Cleaning Toilets
    To remove those ugly stains, simply pour Regular Coke into your toilet bowl over the dirty areas and wait for 10 minutes. The acid in the Coke will break up even the most difficult stains.


    Fish Smell
    The boys went fishing and now their clothing smells so bad you want to throw it out? Salvage stinky clothing by pouring some Coke on your laundry during the wash cycle.


    Hair Curling
    For perfect curls, even if your hair is straight, leave an open can of Coke out overnight. Then pour it over your long hair and let it sit for a few minutes. Rinse thoroughly.

    Soothe Your Dog's Paws
    When your pet's paw pads become worn, they can cause your dog a lot of pain. When you notice them getting worn and shiny, soak your pet's paws in glass bottle Coca-Cola for about 20 minutes. This will help soothe and heal your pet's tired feet.
