There is nothing worse than getting an oil stain on your favorite shirt, jeans, or pants. It feels like the end of the world you know. Some of us keep it because of its sentimental value and just wear it around the house. Don’t worry it seems Coca-Cola can help revive your favorite clothes without having to purchase expensive cleaning products.

“I have been using coke to get out grease stains for ten years.” Sharlisa Holloway continues. “I had a grease stain on my prom dress, and my grandma poured coke on it to get the stain out. It hasn’t failed me since!”

The carbon and phosphoric acid in Coca-Cola are useful in removing oil stains and dissolving rust on various items. Even though it sounds like it can be a dangerous drink, Coca-Cola contains a moderate amount that isn’t harmful.

You may get a little sticky from carbonated syrup, but at least you’ll be able to wear your favorite shirt again.
