"Try mixing 1/2 cup vinegar and 1/4 cup baking soda (or 2 teaspoons borax) into 1/2 gallon (2 liters) jug of water.  "

Uh, wouldn't the acid and base just neutralize each other?

"Black Thunder Diarrhea" is the name of my Tenacious D cover band.

works great for cleaning the battery terminals in your car.

Works spectacularly well on cleaning that pesky enamel off your teeth. If I make it to my fifties without constant pain or a complete remodelling of my mouth I'll be impressed.

Great way to stain your teeth to that antique finish that's allllllllll the rage these days.

Isn't that and some food coloring the recipe for a 6th grade science fair volcano Lava?

I don't normally drink coke, but when I do, it has rum in it.

A drink I recently discovered is Pepsi and Guinness. Tastier than you might expect.

Are you swishing it around like mouthwash? Just pour the cola on your tongue and let it slide down your throat hole.

Black thunder diarrhea (aka the Screaming Mimis) always sounds funny and is a great band name until you are the one on the toilet....  :-(
 
2013-03-14 09:53:14 AM
So what, am I supposed to drink water instead? Like from the now clean toilet?

How else are you supposed to get the taste out of your mouth after hitch hiking with no cash?

I seem to recall Dominique Zamora using a two-liter of Coke to clean my semen from the sides of her vaginal walls.  What a night that was.  She sure as hell was a foodie that night, if you get my drift.

I have said the same thing. There's all kinds of cleaning "advice" out there written by people who have failed grade school chemistry.

"From far beyond the galaxies I've journeyed to this place
"To study the behavior patterns of the human race
"And I find them highly illogical
"

Coke is excellent at removing wallpaper paste as well and cheaper than anything from the hardware store.
 
2013-03-14 11:06:42 AM
Why don't you just use water?

The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves: Why don't you just use water?


Because Coke has electrolytes. It's what toilets crave.

Vinegar is around a 3 on the pH scale - borax is around 9.  Since 7 is neutral and it's a logarithmic scale the borax only tones down the acidity a bit and softens the water.

It also converts some of the water to hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) which is a bleaching agent.

coke is a basically carbonic acid with sugars
[carbonic acid is basically a fancy name for water with carbon dioxide dissolved in it [aka 'soda water']
carbonic acid is the active ingredient that does all the cleaning  so - if you want to be a dick and use back-to-bassics cleaning ingredients,  why not just use the cheaper alternative - fizzy water

and, ever notice how the table is sticky after you've spilled coke on it? coke has sugars in it - which are just going to be a great place for bacteria to stick to after you've used it in your toilet

Fark that.  I need something that's got electrolytes.
 
2013-03-14 05:52:23 PM
Dump a bottle of weak white vinegar in the toilet and the same farking thing will happen.
 
2013-03-14 08:39:32 PM
I hate Fark hipsters.

Orange is also used to clean. Therefore, oranges and everything orange is terrible for your health.
