It’s Not Me, It’s You

It's Not Me, It's You  I’ll be the first to admit that if one thing has a hold on me and would be considered an addiction it is Cherry Coke Zero.  Yeah, I swear if we have it in the fridge my brain sends a message to my feet to walk out to the garage and get one. That message occurs at least 5 times a day. It’s quite bothersome that my brain doesn’t do the same thing with water and I’m telling you with the amount of physical exertion I output in a day I NEED water!  I preach moderation but to be quite honest this is one item that I just can’t do in moderation.  I’m ready to dump it.  I don’t need to read anymore articles that tell me it’s bad for me, I’m convinced.  Am I the only one that feels this way? Are you ready to dump it too?

After you read these twenty alternative uses for the king of colas you’ll be ready to dump it too. In an article recently published on Get Holistic Health, the following twenty alternative uses for coke were cited as reasons as to why you should not put coca-cola in the human body:

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.
5. Kills slugs and snails; the acids kills them.
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 laying it on the paint surface.

Now can you imagine what is does to your stomach lining? Who needs the household and cleaner section at the hardware store when we have Coke.
