The following interesting water and Coca Cola facts are now circulating on the Internet.

We reprint these water and health facts below and suggest that you make up your own mind as to their accuracy.

Nevertheless, all very interesting reading.

Editor's Note. This tip works. For heavy staining leave the Coke in the toilet bowl overnight, then brush thoroughly in the morning.

4. Coke contains carbonic acid, which is used in many products designed to remove rust – although it pays to remember that many other carbonated drinks also contain carbonic acid.
