PAIN RELIEVER FOR INSECT BITES AND STINGS
For truckers hauling loads cross country in the summer, they are prone to long days on the road, left-arm tans, and impeccable heatwaves. But something else it brought out during this season, that’s right they are insects. Buzzing around and joining you during your trip, it’s almost unavoidable to get bitten or stung by these winged fellows. If you do happen to fall victim to their bites, make sure you have a Coke in hand. Pouring a small amount over the bite or sting can help neutralize the pain and reduce swelling.
KEEPS CHROME SHINY AND CLEAN
Many trucks have chrome and driving through different seasons can place a toll on these. In order to maintain its shine, just pour Coke over the desired area that needs shining and scrub away with a wrinkled aluminum foil. It dissolves the rust and will make your chrome shine brand new.

The ice should come right off.
STAIN AND ODOR REMOVER
