Casa Quickie: Clean Your Toilet With a Coke

If you're short on cleaning supplies, or don't want to spend the money on them, look no further than your refrigerator to get your toilet sparkling clean. Just pour a can of Coke over the yucky stains inside your toilet and let it sit for at least an hour. The acids in the soda will break down the grime. If your toilet is super grimey, use a couple of cans of Coke, and let it sit for several hours or overnight. Then, just use a toilet brush to loosen the filth from the bowl and flush! Your toilet will look like new. Fini! Who knew?

Oh c'mon ladies, I know some of you took chemistry and would know that cola (or anything for that matter) reacts differently when you mix it with toilet water vs. stomach acid. Not that I'm advocating drinking the stuff, but it's not going to have the same effect on your stomach.

enough to make you stop drinking coke all together.

Finally, a use for all the half-drunk cans my kids keep leaving around. As long as it'd be going down the drain anyway, I might as well have it do something!

I've tried this before, but I didn't leave it on nearly long enough! No wonder it didn't work. :)

Seems like an expensive way to clean. A couple of shakes of scouring powder or a splash of bleach is cheaper, works better and kills more germs.

I have been soda sober for four months~ I gave up all sodas especially my love of classic coca-cola up for New Years. Out of my 10 resolutions it's the only one I've kept! haha I've always known cokes were made. My mom drank so many cokes that her doctor diagnosed her with acid poisoning since her skin started to break out in these dark colored rashes due to the amount of coke she drank. Anyway this is a good tip.

i so agree that this is disturbing. i don't like soda - thank goodness - the fact that it eats away at toilet grease is just foul.
