    Yes, but you are still giving money to Coca Cola corporation, and that just encourages them. I try and stay well clear. :BigGrin:

    It's simply the phosphoric acid in it doing its stuff - the same active ingredient in most household cleaners. I'd still sooner drink Coke than Cillit Bang! :BigGrin:

    I left some old blackened pennies in it, and a week later I had old shiny pennies.

    Brasso does it quicker though. Mind you Brasso would polish you off quicker than Coke.

    I wonder. Could we connect the House of Commons sprinkler system to a large tank of Coca Cola and arrange for it to be tested when the House is full? :Laughing:

    As a chrome cleaner, etc. brown sauce (Daddies, not that girlie HP stuff, that's just for Cornish and Welsh folk) works well also.
    With sauce, coke and such, wash it off well after it's done its thing.

    It's a very good cure for "Delhi Belly" or similar but must be flat.
    Pour Coke back & forth between two cups/glasses until no bubbles remain then drink.
    Works very well, I was given this tip by a retiring chemist.
