Fizz windshields clean with cola

When it rains after a long dry spell, a dirty windshield turns into one big mess. Get rid of streaks and blotches by pouring cola over the glass. (Stretch a towel along the bottom of the windshield to protect hood paint.) The bubbles in the cola will fizz away the grime. Just be sure to wash the sticky cola off thoroughly or your cleaning efforts will end up attracting dust and dirt.

I think I'll stick to my white vinegar. It makes the windshield sparkling clean and there's no sticky residue to worry about, not to mention it won't hurt the paint if it touches it.

 Why buy a soda? I always clean my windshield when I buy gas, for free.

Also clean your rims and your engine with it. Cola is great if you need to have something eat away battery acid. That shows how bad it is for you to drink.

I knew that cola can clean off the battery cables. It is interesting that cola is able to clean windshields I'll have to remember that when I own a car again.
