I’m pretty sure you’ve heard about using Coca-Cola to wash your toilet bowl but do you know what else you can do with it? (other than drinking it, lol).
1. Removing stains
Got a stain on your favourite shirt? Try using Coca-Cola to remove it! The carbonic acid in Coke helps to dissolve the ink so that it’s easier to wash out the stain. It can also help remove blood stains! Don’t believe it? Well, Mythbusters confirmed that Coca-Cola can help remove blood stains after trying it out in an experiment.
The carbonation and phosphoric acid in the drink can do wonders on bloodstains. Just let it sit for 5 minutes then remove it with a cloth/sponge.
2. Killing garden pests
Using Coke in the garden isn’t something new to some folks. Some people use beer to kill off slugs and apparently, it works the same with Coke. Set a low bowl filled with Coca-Cola down in your garden overnight. The sugar in the drink will entice pests such as slugs and wasps to come, causing them to drown in the sweet acidic drink.

3. Tenderising meat
When you are cooking with large cuts of meat, the acidity in Coca-Cola helps to tenderise and denature meat. It also works great as a marinade as it can help balance out the sweetness of a dish, especially on braised meat. Here’s a recipe by Southern Kitchen you can follow! If you’re more of a grilled meat fan, you can simmer some sweet onion in Coke as a garnish.
4. Soothe jellyfish sting
Usually, people would use vinegar to soothe jellyfish stings but who goes to the beach with vinegar in their bag? According to an article by NewScientist, you can use Coca-Cola to reduce the pain of the sting instead!
5. Relieve a headache
You might not know this but Coca-Cola was actually invented by pharmacist John Pemberton in 1886 who first sold it as a tonic for curing hangovers, headaches, and stomaches. Caffeine is proven to help relieve tension-type headaches and since Coca-Cola has caffeine in it, ergo the cure! If you want to know more, here’s an article by Live Science about caffeine
You can use Coca-Cola for hair curling too! Just like Lady Gaga in her song “Telephone”.
