Do not Drink Coca Cola | Use it as a Household Cleanser Instead


I had done some research about Coca Cola which I rarely drink from the time I was pregnant. I got to know that Coca Cola and other soft drinks are poisons to our body. Why?

1) Coca Cola has absolutely no health benefits for your body. It is held responsible for diabetes and obesity around the world because of its high sugar and caloric contents.

2) Coca Cola contains phosphoric acid which  reduce the amount of calcium in the bones. It has been proven to destroy bones by contributing to osteoporosis and to destroy teeth too.

3) There are food dyes and other chemical additives in Coke products that are known to be carcinogens.

4) Aspartame, now known as AminoSweet, has been linked to numerous diseases and health problems. Michael F. Jacobson, the Executive Director of Center for Science in the Public Interest’s (CSPI), issued the following statement :

Aspartame has been found to cause cancer — leukemia, lymphoma, and other tumors–in laboratory animals, and it shouldn’t be in the food supply.


5) Coca Cola  has a level of acidity which is very close to the acidity level of a battery. To have a better idea of its danger, consider the fact that battery acid is 1 pH and pure water has a pH of 7. I bet that know you won’t really want to drink Coca Cola.


Coca Cola is a big danger for our body but there is a good news, because of its acidity level you can use it as a household cleaner!! Below are some tips on how Coca Cola can help you in cleaning your house.


1. Removes grease stains from clothing and fabric
2. Removes rust; methods include using fabric dipped in Coke, a sponge or even aluminum foil. Also loosens rusty bolts
3. Removes blood stains from clothing and fabric.
4. Cleans oil stains from a garage floor; let the stain soak, hose off.

6. Cleans burnt pans; let the pan soak in the Coke, then rinse.
7. Descales a kettle (same method as with burnt pans)
8. Cleans car battery terminals by pouring a small amount of Coke over each one.
9. Cleans your engine; Coke distributors have been using this technique for decades.
10. Makes pennies shine; soaking old pennies in Coke will remove the tarnish.

11. Cleans tile grout; pour onto kitchen floor, leave for a few minutes, wipe up.
12. Dissolves a tooth; Use a sealed container…takes a while but it does work.
13. Removes gum from hair; dip into a small bowl of Coke, leave a few minutes. Gum will wipe off.
14. Removes stains from vitreous china.
15. Got a dirty pool? Adding two 2-liter bottles of Coke clears up rust.

16. You can remove (or fade) dye from hair by pouring diet Coke over it.
17. Remove marker stains from carpet. Applying Coke, scrubbing and then clean with soapy water will remove marker stains.
18. Cleans a toilet; pour around bowl, leave for a while, flush clean.
19. Coke and aluminum foil will bring Chrome to a high shine.
20. Strips paint off metal furniture. Soak a towel in Coke and lay it on the paint surface.


I hope that this article will make you think twice before drinking Coca Cola or any other soft drinks. Many of us ignore what today’s foods really contain because those who make these foods pay big amount of money for us not to know. May Allah help all of us to stop consuming what is bad for us. Amin

  1. Awesome alternative uses for Coke, I haven’t been drinking it ever since pregnancy either, may be just once or twice when offered as a guest in the past three years 🙂 never going back inshaAllah

    • I do hope so, but I still saw some people who refused to believe about the dangers of soft drinks even though the proofs were in front of them. I think it might be their addiction who made them react that way.

      • I’m sure it is their addiction, a lot of people can’t see past their addictions to so many things, the real evil doers are those who make these poison products…

    • When I did some research I came across website that warned about soft drinks (soda) because they contain a huge amount of sugar, they contain phosphate, an acid which is bad for the bones.

      Soft drinks are linked to the increase of obesity and diabetes. I know it will be hard to totally stop consuming Coca, Pepsi , Fanta and many other sodas. So if you drink these kind of sodas daily, try to reduce its quantity :).

      • JazakAllah khair sis , u didnt understand from my comment i was just acting dumb . one of my senior guy got afflicted with diabetes cox of drinking colddrinks way too much. guys who workout and follow the diet they know how bad is it for their fitness. but you shared more information , i mean reason why it is bad.

      • Oh hahaha sorry I didnt not realize the tone of your comment 😀 And I feel sorry for the guy who got diabete because of soft drinks. Nowadays we should be extremely careful on what we eat and drink

  2. I remember doing science experiments in school as a teenager, using coca-cola to loosen rusted bolts. Nasty stuff, corroding the inside of bones. etc. A story I share with my children many times in hopes to discourage them trying it. Some great household use suggestions.

    • Thank you for sharing your experience dear 🙂 Yes, to stop our children from consuming bad stuff we have to find examples that will impress them and hopefully make them stay away from these. Because children nowadays are like “I don’t believe what I don’t see” or “If Coca is bad , why do many people drink it then? 😀
