How to make soda flat ... quickly?

ipsedixit | Jun 20, 2007 10:16 PM

Is there a way to make soda go flat quickly?

Other than just leaving the can or bottle open and letting the carbonation fizzle out on its own, is there a way to speed up the process?

I know I can empty out about a 1/3 of a 2 liter bottle, re-cap it, shake vigorously, open and let out the carbonation. This will speed up the process somewhat.

But with a can, that's not really possible.

Any tricks out there? Thanks.
