 in addition to all the cleaning you can do with coke it is also good for medicinal purposes.

asthma-if you feel an attack coming on but can't find your inhaler drink two cans of coke, the caffeine will hinder the attack till you can get to your inhaler.

indigestion/nausea/vomiting- drink a flat can of coke.  coke was originally invented to cure upsets stomachs after all, you just want to make sure you don't ingest those pesky carbonated bubbles, they'll upset your stomach more.

love pinto beans but not the gas they lead to?  add a can of coke to a pot of pinto beans to neutralize the gas

while drinking a can of coke can have a laxative effect & help with constipation it also helps minimize the risk of diarrhea.  so if you find yourself traveling the globe make sure you have coke on hand to come to your aide.  shouldn't be too hard to do since coke is found around the globe.

gargling with coke can help loosen phlegm in your throat that may be causing irritation.

pouring a can of coke over a jellyfish sting helps relieve the pain.

Some of these are pretty surprising... Jellyfish stings? Who would have thought?

You can put vinegar on a jellyfish sting too, and you won't be all sticky afterward.

Drinking a cup of strong coffee will also help with the asthma thing. Who can really drink 2 cans of coke in one sitting? And not only that but drink it fast enough to actually help?

Who keeps flat coke around their house? 

Like part 1, it's interesting, just not very practical.

If I actually liked coked it would have helped with nausea when i was pregnant. However, the thought of coke alone makes my stomach turn.
