Six on Saturday: New Uses for Coca Cola

We all know that Coca Cola can be a refreshing drink to enjoy from time to time. But did you know that famous red can of soda can do more then quench a thirst?

six new uses for coca cola from inspiration for moms

Discover six new uses for Coca Cola that may have you singing,  ♪ “I’d like to buy the world a coke.” ♪  :)

1) Deskunk someone. If you or a loved one is ever spayed by a skunk, jump in the shower with a bottle of coke and pour the soda over the affected area.

2) Clean your pots. Have the bottom of your pots become blackened? Simply pour Coca Cola in your pots and let sit overnight. Wash the pot as normal and watch your stains disappear.

3) Degrease your clothes. Pour Coca Cola right on the grease stain and let it soak. Of course the stain will slightly discolor due to the color of the soda, but after you wash like normal, your clothes will come out clean.

Friday’s Fantastic Finds

thank goodness its friday

Hey there and Happy Friday to you! Today is going to busy and kinda stressful day. First up is a play date for my son at a local waterpark playground. Then this afternoon our home appraiser arrives. I know everyone wants to get top dollar for their home and I’m no different. I have been cleaning like mad and trying to declutter as much as possible. Hopefully all my hard work will pay off! If you could send up a little prayer for the inspection this afternoon I would really appreciate it. :)

Alright now, it’s time to just relax and enjoy some of my finds this week!

Fantastic Dessert: Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars. I want to make these right now. Drooling!



Fantastic Travel Accessory: Travel Scarf with Hidden Pocket. Not only is this a safe way to carry your passport and money but it’s also easier to access at the airport. Love it!
