Removing Rust
You may already know this tip, but coke is very effective for removing rust. How should you do it? Put the rusted part in a bowl of coke or pour it over the rusted spot, and the rust will be gone before you know it. This is because there are traces of phosphoric acid in coke, which break down rust and can make things like bicycle spokes, nails, and car bumpers look as good as new. This tip is even more amazing in combination with aluminium foil. Pour a little cola over the rusted spot, rub some aluminium foil over it and you will see the rust disappear. Please note! According to the experts, Coca-Cola Light yields the best results.

Coke is also a very good product to use in the garden. For example, you could add a little coke to the fertilizer. Keep in mind that you should only do this with plants that like acid soil. Such as hydrangeas, rose bushes and the Japanese Maple. You can also add a few drops of coke to the water in the vase with your bouquet of cut flowers, this keeps the flowers beautiful and fresh longer.
