Whip up a mixture of Coke, soda water, and lemon juice until it has a paste-like consistency, and apply the mixture to china like the inside of your sink to break up tough stains that normal scrubbing just can’t handle.
Let it sit for five minutes before you rinse it off thoroughly. Really thoroughly, as letting it sit too long could permanently discolor the china. You can also use this on china dishes or settings, and it will leave them sparkling just like new. Coke seems to be in charge of the entire life of stains, from their creation to their destruction.
Take a look online and you'll find hundreds of ways to introduce your favorite soft drink into your bakes. However, just adding some of it to regular bakes can make the dough moist and fluffy thanks to the chemical components of Coke.
Next time you're whipping up a chocolate cake or something similar, add some soda for a dash of extra flavor and spongy feeling. The amount you should include will differ with each recipe, so take care not to ruin all your tasty hard work. You can also try other sodas to vary the tastes of your bakes for a surprise!
Tenderize Your Meats
Coke goes great with lots of meals, but it does more than linger on the tongue. The acidic properties of this and many other soft drinks tenderize your food and give it a deep, rich flavor. There's a good chance that it will beat store-bought marinades and sauces if you like Coke enough.
You'll just need to put your meat inside a plastic bag, with enough coke to cover all the sides. Put it together two or three hours before cooking for tender, juicy, tasty meat. We've heard the flavor works best with pork, but almost anything will do.
Create Dynamite Curls
It's been a big surprise how many uses Coke has for your personal beauty regimen. From dying, to washing, to now curling, it seems like any beauty queen has to have Coke in her makeup supplies. The phosphoric acid in Coca-Cola contracts hair cuticles, which brings out the natural curl of your hair.
The next time you want an inexpensive way to get a little bit more volume, try washing your hair with Coke. Look, we just write the stuff, we didn't come up with it. It's not like everyone here has beautiful curls and sugary hair. No. Certainly not.
Add Some Flavor to Sloppy Joes
Coke livens up lots of dishes as a drink, but here's another one you can add directly. The addition of this soda – or really, any soda – livens up the flavors of a Sloppy Joe mix and doesn't make dinnertime any more complicated.
Joes are great fare for many, but some people do find them a little bland. Use some Coke while mixing to put a little more pep into the sandwich. The sugar is, of course, a big draw for why people will enjoy the mix, but the other flavors of Coke don't hurt. Top with mustard or ketchup for flavors that will linger on your tongue for a long time.
