1.) Toilet Cleaner
Pour some Coca-cola around the toilet bowl, including the rim and then let it sit for at least an hour. After that, just flush the toilet. It may take a couple of times before all of the stains are removed.
2.) Strip Off Paint
If there’s a piece of furniture you want to repaint, don’t bother with expensive paint removers. Use Coke instead.
Soak a towel in the beverage and put it over the painted area. It only has to stay for a short while before you’ll be able to peel the paint straight off. It’s one of the more surprising uses for Coca Cola, but it works.
3.) Rust Removal
The acid inside of Coca-cola can dissolve rust. Soak your rusty objects, such as pennies or nails, for a whole day. Then you can rinse them off and wipe them clean, and they’ll be as good as new.
4.) Chrome Shiner
You can clean chromed wheels with some Coca-cola and aluminum foil. Using the two together and make those wheels shine once more.
5.) Polishing Silver
Have some tarnished silver? Soak the object in some Cola for a couple of minutes before rinsing and wiping it clean.
The silver will no longer have those built-up stains.
6.) Clear Away Gum
This popular fizzy drink is great at getting gum off of things. A small amount is all you need.
Just put a little down at the sticky spot and let it soak, then simply wipe away the gum. It works even in your hair.
7.) Oil Spill Clean Up
Use a bottle of Coke directly on an oil spill and let it soak for a couple of hours before rinsing it away.
The beverage and the oil will be gone.
8.) Tile Grout Cleaner
Pour some Coca-cola straight onto your tiled floor and let it seep in for a few minutes before wiping it away.
You’ll have nice clean tile grout again. Don’t worry, the Coca-cola won’t stain your floor.
9.) Scour a Car Battery
First, make sure your car is off before continuing. Then you can pour some Cola on the battery connections to help clean away any kind of corrosion that could be causing problems with your car.
10.) Burnt Pan Detergent
There’s no need to use elbow-grease to clean severely burnt cooking pans. Soak those pans in some Coke and those hard-to-remove pieces will fall off with ease.
11.) Skunk Smell Eliminator
Letting Coca-cola soak into skin or fur that has seen the bad side of a skunk can help eliminate the foul odor. Just let it soak and then rinse the beverage and the terrible smell away.

Adding in a can of Coke into your normal washing detergent can make those stubborn grease stains disappear. It can also help get rid of other stains, such as ones caused by blood or asphalt.
