We all know Coca-Cola as the drink that we yearn on those hot summer days. Even though it makes us thirstier (due to its high sugar content) after we have some, the drink seems to hypnotize many of us. Kids are more and more addicted to this stuff and parents are alarmed because of the negative effects it might have on a balanced diet. Luckily, there are plenty of other uses around the household for a bottle of Coca-Cola.
1. Clean Your Toilet With Coca-Cola
2. Remove Tough, Greasy Stains From Clothing With Coca-Cola
It’s already quite popular that stains can be easily removed with a little help of the carbon and phosphor acid of the carbonated soft drink. Pour it into the washing machine and watch `the magic` happen.
3. Remove gum stuck in your hair

The scientific principle behind the efficiency of Coca-Cola at cleaning windows is centered around the citric acid present in the soda drink. Use it just like any other window cleaner and wipe afterward with a rug. Another good alternative purpose for a coke.
