Use Coca Cola to Help Start a Compost Pile

Use Coca Cola to Help Start a Compost PileCoca Cola's sweet and acidic properties can come in handy when you're building a compost pile for your garden. Household weblog Stylelist Home recommends that you wait for the can or bottle to go flat and then pour it over your compost pile—the sweetness will attract micro-organisms and the mild acid of the soda will also help break down organic material destined to become compost.

I wouldn't make a habit of regularly doing this, but if you have no other materials in your compostables that would attract pests an occasional soda will most likely work as advised. Photo by DeusXFlorida
