Now the first thing I want to say, right off the bat is this: I don’t drink the stuff. Haven’t done for years, and wouldn’t do so unless you paid me serious cash. Diet or sugared, branded or generic… it is all evil in my opinion. So, if you’re like me, you’ll be pleased to find a load of ways to do something with Coke other than drink it (or pour it down the drain). Because sooner or later, someone’s going to leave some cans in your fridge after a gathering, and they will just be sitting there waiting for you to make your move…
The second thing I want to say is that the original coca cola formula – from way back in the 1880s, appears to have had a very interesting (and zingy) combination of herbs and spices: In addition to the coca leaf that it was (in)famous for, and numerous other ingredients including vanilla extract, it also contained essential oils of orange, cinnamon, lemon, coriander, nutmeg and neroli. 
We’ve found what looks to be the “ultimate” list of weird but amazing uses for coke – 51 of them in all! There are some brilliant ones in there. Adding it to the compost pile? Yes, that sounds about right. 🙂
One that really got me curious was the one about using coke together with aluminium foil in order to “bring chrome to a high shine”. Has anyone tried this one. I’m intrigued by the chemistry that would be at work here. Any scientists in the house? Comments please!
A handful of these uses require ingestion of the substance, not something I would stand behind. And there are of course a few silly ones. However this still leaves a lot of options for someone who is obsessive about healthy ingredients.
There is one in the list to which I have to ad a safety warning – #22 calls for “boiling a can of coke”. It might sound obvious… but I would caution against applying heat to an unopened can of coke, I have no idea whether it could handle the pressure and think it could explode. If you want to try this one, I would suggest first opening the can then either emptying the contents into a pan and heating, or putting the opened can inside a pan of hot water.
Ok here is the link to the original list of 51 uses for coca-cola, have fun: http://www.wisebread.com/51-uses-for-coca-cola-the-ultimate-list
