10 Unusual Uses For Coca Cola


I found this amusing so thought that I’d share it just for fun… I wish that I knew about number 8 when I was a kid!!! lol

1. Pot Cleaner

The bottom of pots sometimes become blackened. If you pour Coca Cola into your pots and let it sit. Wash the pot as normal with concentrating on the blackened areas and the Coke will likely remove the stains!

2. Rust Buster

Soak rusted metals in Coca-Cola overnight and then scrub in the morning. The rust will weaken and come off more easily.

3. Toilet Cleaner

Add a can of Coke into the mix to help hasten the cleaning process.

4. Window Cleaner

Instead of using chemical household cleaners, try wiping down windows with Coke to remove dirt and grease.

5. Clothing Stain Remover

Pour Coke right on top of a stain and let it soak. Ofcourse the stain will slightly discolor due to the color of the soda, but after you throw your clothes into your washing machine, the shirt will come out clean.

6. Pain Reducer

Dab the affected area with the beverage to relieve bee stings and mosquito bites. It even works for jellyfish stings!

7. Stomach Soother

Coca-Cola helps balance the pH levels in your stomach and will temporarily relieve heartburn and indigestion

8. Remove Gum From Hair

Soak your gum-tangled hair with Coke and let it sit for a few minutes. With some patience, begin to slowly pull it out.

9. Kill Bugs

If you want to get rid of an ant hill or rid roaches, spray the bugs with Coke. Even though it attracts them, it will also kill them once they’re inundated.

10. Loosen Bolts

Because Coca-Cola is so helpful in dissolving rust, it can help to loosen bolts that have rusted and once were close to impossible to remove.

Creative Christmas Trees Made From Books

I love books … and anything to do with books which includes decorating with them!!! I just think that they look so chic in any interior … and somehow add a bit of sophistication to any home…..

I love those trees made out of books…. they look so different…. If you can’t find a tree where you live or are not so into the holiday decoration I suggest that you collect all your book that you already have and make a tree out of them!

Daniel’s DIY Duvet Cover

This is one of the most creative DIYs that I have ever came across!

 Jen from jengrantmorris.blogspot.com, took the idea of keeping your child’s artwork, to a whole new level!!!

1st of all she worked with her son to pick out his favorite sketches… (I must say that her son is quite talented and very creative!)

Then she scanned the chosen sketches into Photoshop, where she turned them black and white and then printed them on standard A4 pieces of paper.

Next, she traced the artwork onto a plain white duvet cover with a black fabric pen.

Et voilà! 

The final result is amazing!…..What a brilliant way to keep your child’s art work on display at all times! I’m sure that he feels proud every time he walks into his room!

Thanks Jen for a great idea! x
