5 Things To Do with Pop
Don’t pour that pop down the drain. Instead, use it to remove rust, freshen cut flowers, moisten your ham, and more!
1. Clean Car Battery Terminals
Yes, it’s true, the acidic properties of pop will help to eliminate corrosion from your car battery. Nearly all carbonated soft drinks contain carbonic acid, which helps to remove stains and dissolve rust deposits. Pour some pop over the battery terminals and let it sit. Remove the sticky residue with a wet sponge.
3. Make Cut Flowers Last Longer
Don’t throw away those last drops of pop. Pour about ¼ cup into the water in a vase full of cut flowers. The sugar in the pop will make the blossoms last longer. If you have a clear vase and want the water to remain clear, use a clear pop, such as Sprite or 7-Up.
4. Make a Roast Ham Moist
Want to make your ham juicier? Pour a can of cola over your traditional ham recipe and follow regular baking instructions. Yum!
