Tip: Storing Leftover Soda Pop

Always store 2 litre bottles of soda, once opened, on their sides in the fridge. As long as there is enough soda in the bottle to cover the cap, the soda will keep its fizz.

Tip: Squeeze Air Out Of Soda Bottles

Squeeze Air Out Of Soda BottlesThis is something I have done forever but always gets a question when someone sees the squeezed bottle in my refrigerator. We don't drink soda quickly in our house so I squeeze out the air from my soda bottles then seal them to reduce air inside and keep them from going flat!

It might be done by everyone, I don't know, but I thought it was a simple but good idea!

Tip: Keeping Soda Pop Fresh

To keep canned soda after opening, place a small piece of plastic wrap on the can with an elastic band. It's just like a top.

Instead of throwing away half a can of soda or leaving it to become decarbonized, place a balled up piece of foil in the drinking hole sealing off the majority, if not all, of the can. Place it in the fridge. Two days later, your soda still has that satisfying "fizz". Thanks to Grandma.
