    Water can also clean a toilet, so that's not really much of an argument.

    I assume you mean the acid?

    According to the diagram here http://www.natural-reflux-cure.com/stomach-acid.html; Coke is only weaker than lemon juice, stomach acid and battery acid - stomach acid is pH 1, Coke is ph 2.2, stronger than vinegar and acid rain :eek:, no wonder it can mess up your teeth!
    I did indeed mean the acid I think I knew Coke was strong, but not that strong...

    The company produces concentrate, which is then sold to licensed Coca-Cola bottlers throughout the world. The bottlers, who hold territorially exclusive contracts with the company, produce the finished product in cans and bottles from the concentrate in combination with filtered water and sweeteners. How can you not know this? lol

    Obviously I meant clean as in getting rid of stains. If you pour water down the toilet, it doesn't do what coke does.

    it can be dispensed like that, when businesses/outlets sell a lot, they dont want to deal with loads of litres of coke in containers out back.
    instead, they buy a container of about 10l of syrup (post mix syrup), and mix it with soda when it is being dispensed.

    When I was 6 I carried out a little experiment when my tooth fell of, I put it in a bottle of coke and left it in their overnight, in the morning it was gone, and no it was not the ******* tooth fairy. Just shows how much sugar content it has, it can decay your teeth really fast.

    Tbh the contents of your stomach is probably strong enough to clean your toilet...so I wouldn't worry about your innards - more your teeth. :teeth:
    Long experience of vomiting in my toilet tells me quite the opposite.

    Coke used to contain bits from the coca leaf (where cocaine comes from) but after finding out the effects of cocaine it was removed and replaced with some other weird thing
