Coke can do anything! I agree, I don`t really like Coke all that much, Pepsi is much better.

i live in an area where there is a lot of industrial factories, surprise surprise, one of these places make cola, and the guys who work there have heavy wellington/docker boots, which are replaced every month, thats right EVERY month, because the cola eats through the soles of their boots. the only boot which doesn`t seem to be affected is the Dr. Marten boot, unfortunatly, the cola also eats through leather, sucks to work there! but yeah, caffeine, and possibly the coca extract used in both coke and pepsi dissuade pests

None of you seem to understand what was said in the video or why its a good pestecide
Its beacuse the cola there has pestecides in it. Also.....if you put pestecide in coca-cola...YES the sugar will attract insects, BUT then the poison will just kill them.....so in the end there are more bugs by the plants...but theyre all dead

Tobacco is a pesticide, which is why smokers are bitten by insects much less than non-smokers.

Coca-cola cleans chrome, it is especially effective in removing rust.

I don`t see how this would work. We did an experiment involving plants and how different liquids affect their growth. The soda plant died in three days.

I`ve heard of truck-drivers using these colas to clean their engines, but that`s probably just a myth. HOLY SMOKES I`m gonna check the CokeLore page on Snopes right now!!

Icel3lade, they never use coca-cola to wash blood off. They use the water guns on fire engine most of the time, water is more effective and doesn`t leave a nasty sugary residue.

And just about anything can polish chrome.

They`re using it as a pesticide, not for it`s amazing range of chemicals, but rather because it`s a cheap source of normal, everyday chemicals, in respectable concentrations.

Coke has tons of uses! People who do crime-scene/crash-scene cleanup use it to clean blood off roads etc. It`s also pretty effective as a chrome polisher.

That`s not surprising lol. Remember the test you`d do in primary school where you`d put a dirty coin in a glass of coke and eventually it`d clean it?
