Other Uses of Coke (the soft-drink)

Below are some wacky uses for Coca Cola that have been sent in by readers
Clean Your Kettle:
Craig Barry from England writes; "This is a crazy tip my grandmother used to de-scale her teapot/kettle. Add a 2 liter coca cola (the real thing!) to you kettle and let it settle for a day. Then rinse your kettle out a few times and wipe clean and kapow its clean! Your kettle is now de-scaled and dirt free!" Thanks for sharing Craig!

Common Cold:
Take some fresh ginger and put it in a pot with a can of Coca Cola. Let it come to a boil and then cook on a low heat for a few minutes. Drink while warm. It will ease your cold symptoms!

Too Much Information:
In many states the highway patrol carries two gallons of Coke in the trunk to remove blood from the highway after a car accident. (this one has got to be a myth!) Kym from Washington State writes; "I thought that I would inform you that the information on your website about the highway patrol carrying coca cola in the back of their patrol cars is not a myth. It is indeed very true. The reason for it is that it "eats" the blood off the concrete and looks like water therefore it is not so noticeable as kitty litter or sawdust. Thought that I would clear that up for you. I have worked for the state patrol clean up crew for a number of years." Thanks Kym!

Relieve Jelly Fish Sting:
Coke can also be used to relieve the sting from Jelly Fish. All you have to do is pour the Coke over the sting.

Gum in your Hair!:
This tip was sent in by Linda from Texas; "Just take the gum coated hair and dip in a small bowl that has some Coca Cola in it. Let sit for just a few minutes and the gum will wipe right off." Thanks Linda!

i bet its all BS though, I mean who really tries this stuff you know? When you're stung by a jellyfish, trying to use coke might not be the first thing people think of... unless its nose candy we're on about.

but yeah feel free to try it and do let us know mate!
