(diet or otherwise)
#1. In many states the highway patrol carries two gallons of Coke in the trunk to remove blood from the highways.
#2. You can put a T-bone steak in a bowl of Coke and it will be gone in two days.
#3. To clean a toilet: Pour a can of Coke into the bowl and let sit for one hour, then flush clean. The citric acid in Coke removes stains from china.
#4. To remove rust spots from a chrome car bumper: Rub the bumper with a rumpled-up piece of aluminum foil dipped in Coke.
#5. To clean corrosion from car battery terminals: Pour a can of Coke over the terminals to bubble away the corrosion.
#6. To loosen a rusted bolt: Apply a cloth soaked in Coke to the rusted bolt for several minutes.
#7. To bake a moist ham: Empty a can of Coke into the pan, wrap the ham in foil, and bake. 30 mins before the ham is finished, remove the foil allowing the drippings to mix with the Coke for a fantastic brown gravy.
#8. To remove grease from clothes: Empty a can of coke into the load, add detergent, and run through a rinse cycle. The Coke will help loosen grease stains.
The active ingredient in Coke is phosphoric acid. It will dissolve a nail in about 4 days. Phosphoric acid also leaches calcium from bones and is a major contributor to the rising increase of osteoporosis.
To carry Coca-Cola syrup (the concentrate) the commercial trucks must use a hazardous material sign reserved for highly corrosive material.
Now the question is, would you like a glass of water or Coke??
