15 Things to do with a can of coke

Anyone ever had a can of coca-cola and thought about other uses for it?
It's more versatile than you might think.
Well there are many uses for it and I list 15 good ways here:

01) drop old coins in overnight and watch how all the muck and grime come off and the coin will shine.
02) Pour it over the compost heap and it will accelerate the decaying process - the micro-organisms will love it.
03) Use it as a toilet cleaner. Leave it for one hour and it wil get rid of a lot of the muck in there.
04) Coke will help remove blood stains, some claim it is used at crime scenes!
05) Leave some outside in a bowl and slugs, ants and wasps etc will be attracted to it but then drown on it or die through the acid.
06) Use it in your hair to make it curl, leave it for a while and rinse off.
07) Another hairdressing tip - it will make your hair colour lighter.
08) Have some fun! Drop some Mentos in and watch the fountain that results.
09) Pots and pans will shine much better after a soak in coke.
10) Put in a tablespoon of coca-cola to your daily lotion and get glowing skin - not literally!
11) Remove grease from fabrics a lot easier with your can of pop!
12) It will help remove chewing gum from your hair. Just leave it for a while.
13) It will remove rust from metal objects. Leave it to soak.
14) The can of coke will clean up corroded battery terminals on the car far better.
15) Those who have cooked food sticking awkwardly to their pans and utensils will benefit from coca-cola - soak for a while and watch how the food softens much easier.

There you have it. Now, when you have a spare can of coca-cols or similar, you can use it for many other things.
If anyone else has any other uses for a can or pop I would be interested to know.
