You should see what it does to a car battery with corroded terminals……..

Coke has a small amount of citric acid in it.
It will dissolve crud over time, but it's not a alternative to formulated cleansers.
If you are worried about Coke in your stomach, better not drink OJ.

That's an interesting thought gbaglo but what would you rather handle for small problems, Coke or formulated cleaners?
My answer is Coke.
