Coca-Cola for grease stains
To remove grease from clothing: Pour Coca-Cola onto the grease spot and rub it in. Then pour some more on the spot and let it sit for 10-15 minutes. Launder your clothes with detergent as usual.
You can either drink the rest of the Coke or pour it in the washing machine at the start of the wash cycle. No, your clothes don't come out sticky. This works well even on the heavy, thick grease that truck drivers get on their shirts when they exchange trailers. I suspect it's the phosphoric acid in the drink that does the trick.
