Carbonated drinks are also capable of cleaning corrosion from car battery terminals. Pour a can of a carbonated drink on the battery terminals and the corrosion will be instantly cleaned. To remove rust from the hinges and bolts you can rub the rust with a cloth or aluminum foil dampened with a carbonated drink.
