I used to drink a lot of cola when I was a teenager. Then I learned what soda does to a person's health and I rarely drink any kind of soda at all....oh, wait, I am a Canadian. It is not SODA it is POP.
In case you are unaware of the truly best use of Coca-Cola, allow me to enlighten you. Coke is the greatest greasy, buttery, oily food stain remover there is for your clothes. Any clothing item that can be washed in a washing machine can lose those greasy food stains after a 4 to 6 hour soak in a few litres of coke. Today I soaked 3 different stained shirts, 2 cotton and one polyester, in 2 litres of Coke. I used a large plastic mixing bowl with a tight sealing lid and left them soaking together in a big cola sodden heap for 4 hours. Then I poured the whole mess in the washing machine for a full wash cycle, using my regular brand and amount of detergent. When the cycle ended I washed them again without any detergent added, hung them to dry and voila! NO MORE GREASY STAINS!
Two of the shirts have been sitting in my closet for a few months after being washed several times previously with no resulting loss of greasy spotting. The other I stained 2 evenings ago.
I have used all the different types of colas on greasy stains and have found that original Coca-Cola is the best at removing the stains, even the longer term grease spots that have all ready been washed several times.
To everything there is a ...........purpose under the sun! (writer of Ecclesiastes, please forgive me)
