http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phosphoric_acid

Phosphoric acid is very commonly used as an aqueous solution of 85% phosphoric acid or H3PO4. Because it is a concentrated acid, an 85% solution can be corrosive, although nontoxic when diluted


Phosphoric acid may be used by direct application to rusted iron, steel tools, or surfaces to convert iron(III) oxide (rust) to a water-soluble phosphate compound. It is usually available as a greenish liquid, suitable for dipping (acid bath), but is more generally used as a component in a gel, commonly called naval jelly.

You might want to chech the list of ingredients in Coke. I believe that one of the main ingredients is phosphoric acid. Acid often cleans corrosion from metal.


At 85% strength it apparently does.....

Processed food use

Food-grade phosphoric acid is used to acidify foods and beverages such as various colas, but not without controversy regarding its health effects. It provides a tangy or sour taste and, being a mass-produced chemical, is available cheaply and in large quantities. The low cost and bulk availability is unlike more expensive natural seasonings that give comparable flavors, such as citric acid which is obtainable from lemons and limes. (However most citric acid in the food industry is not extracted from citrus fruit, but fermented by Aspergillus niger mold from scrap molasses, waste starch hydrolysates and phosphoric acid.) It is labeled as E number E338.


I think I might give up drinking Coke.....

I think that trying to recruit individuals, is going to be harder than getting them to join a group with a common aim. Try to find a common theme among a number of people and start up a team for them. Let them compete in a friendly fashion for RAC and crunching position. This can be as individuals in a team, or teams V\'s teams.

People like seeing their names in print as cruncher of the month etc, friendly rivalry between teams is also good. Plus they are also crunching for a good cause as well. Most people get involved in DC by personal word of mouth and recommendation from friends.

Just my 4c worth....

Coke worries me. You can drop a really dirty coin into a glass of coke and it will be bright shiny new by the morning. A rag soaked in it will clean your car windscreen from all sorts of muck. God knows what it must do to our bodies.....

Oh yes Brylcreem.... Wasn\'t there some stuff called Trugel?


i can\'t find any reference to that.....



Well there definitely was a product called that in the early 1960\'s because I used it! It was in a toothpaste sized tube and was a very sticky clear gel. There were also bottles of Brilliantine liquid as well....
