Give Your Plants a Boost
Club soda gets its fizz from carbon dioxide, which escapes as a gas after the can or bottle is opened, causing the soda to go flat. When your soda loses its sparkle, don't just dump it out. Instead, use it to water your houseplants to give the soil a bit of a mineral boost, leaving you with healthy and fast-growing greenery.
Deodorize Pet Stains in Carpet
Polish Chrome Fixtures
Try wiping your chrome bathroom fixtures with a little club soda poured onto a cloth. The fizzy drink will break up the soap scum and other gunk, and won't leave those pesky water spots.
Loosen a Rusty Screw
If you’ve got a rusty screw that won’t budge, pour a little club soda on it and walk away for about five minutes When you come back, the fizz should have loosened up some of the built-up rust, allowing the screw to turn more easily so you won't have to struggle with your screwdriver.

Clean Your Windshield
Your car windshield endures lots of abuse from mud, road salt, bug splatters, and bird droppings. Keep a spray bottle filled with club soda in your car, and use it to clean your windshield whenever the gunk accumulates. The carbonated fizz in club soda breaks up the dirt, speeding up the cleaning process.
