I think we all know that dishwashers work and that they are for dishes, but maybe you’ve used your dishwasher for something other than washing dishes? What are your alternative uses for your dishwasher? I want to hear from you today at 8:10AM for Will It Work Wednesday.

Here is something interesting too. Check out these tips and uses for Cola!

UNUSUAL HOUSEHOLD USES FOR COLA

1. Remove blood stains from clothes and other objects.
This is a simple matter of pouring the beverage directly onto the offensive mark. Allow it to sit for a few minutes, and then launder or clean as usual. But if you’re wondering whether there’s truth behind the old rumor about cops carrying cola around to clean up bloody car crashes, well… sorry to disappoint, my friend. That one’s just an urban legend.

2. Clean corroded metal.
In it’s inaugural season, the TV show MythBusters proved that you can use cola to clean a penny, by removing grime and leaving a lovely shine. And although they only tested a coin, corrosion is corrosion and copper is copper. I imagine this technique would work on many more objects. Why not give it a try?

3. Create a super secret lawn tonic to make your grass extra gorgeous.
Can you imagine suggesting this to your local landscaper? This technique involves a strange combination of soda, beer, dishwashing soap, ammonia, and mouthwash. I know! It sounds totally impossible, but the author swears by it. You can get a detailed account on Wise Bread, and make sure to read the comments — this magic mixture gets rave reviews!

4. Use cola to clean burnt pans by boiling and then soaking the caked-on crud.
Fill your poor crusted kitchenware with cola (enough to cover the stains completely), bring it to a boil, and simmer for at least 15 minutes. Then use a steel wool or some other super scouring pad to get in there and get the charred pan nice and clean.

5. You can use aluminum foil and a can of cola to make your chrome sparkle.
True! From your car’s bumper and your Chopper’s engine, to your jewelry and your barware, a little soda is all you need to restore that super shine. Just pour the soda over the rusty or dirty area and let it sit for a sec. Then crumple up the aluminum foil, and use the foil to buff out the blemishes. Voila! Pristine and practically brand spankin’ new.
