So, you're probably familiar with the refreshing taste of Coca-Cola already. The international soda brand comes in diet, caffeine-free and even coffee-flavored varieties. It also pairs well with a slice of pizza, a juicy burger and apparently ... toilet water? That's right. The fizzy soda can give your toilet a spotless clean in a pinch.

Check out the hack in action here and follow the steps below for a clean bowl without all the scrubbing!

1. Pour Coca-Cola along the edges of the toilet bowl — the carbonation will take care of the heavy lifting for you!

2. Leave the soda in the toilet overnight.

3. The next morning, flush the fizz away and your toilet will look good as new.

Even more good news — after you're finished, you can kick back with a cold can of soda from your leftover supply!
