15 surprising ways to use Coca-Cola

After reading this, you may not want to drink Coca-Cola ever again. But with as much as 9 1/2 teaspoons of sugar in one can of Coca-Cola and cancer-causing aspartame in Coke Zero, never taking a sip of the sugary soda is not such a bad idea. While you don't want to drink Coca-Cola, you will want it for this surprising use: cleaning. Here's how.
1. Clean burnt pans. Soak grease-burnt pans in a Coca-Cola bath and watch as the stubborn bits and pieces slide away.

8. Clean an oil spill. If your driveway looks like a getaway crime scene, pour a bottle of Coca-Cola directly onto the oil spill. Allow it to soak in for a few hours. Lastly, use a hose to rinse away the Coca-Cola.
9. Eliminate skunk funk. Forget the tomato sauce. Showering with Coca-Cola will eliminate the smell of a skunk. Make sure to let the Coca-Cola sink into the hair and skin (or fur!) for a few minutes prior to rinsing.
