    I thought there would be something stronger than Citric acid in there considering the damage it does to the teeth.

    Coke doesn't actually damage the teeth like the rumour goes. It's a myth.

    Coca-Cola contains acids (such as citric acid and phosphoric acid) which will eventually dissolve items such as teeth (given enough time), but so do plenty of other substances we commonly ingest (such as orange juice). The concentration of acid in these products is so low that our digestive systems are easily capable of coping with it with no harm to us.

    I heard Coke (and other soft drinks) makes a good engine cleaner. It's all that sugar which is bad for your teeth (and hastening diabetes, energy crashes, etc.) - let it sit on your teeth, bacteria digest it - producing stuff that really decays your teeth.

    All myths

    3. The distributors of coke have been using it to clean the engines of their trucks for about 20 years! Drink up! No joke. Think what coke and other soft drinks do to your teeth on a daily basis. A tooth will dissolve in a cup of coke in 24-48 hours.
    Status: False.

    Because of the caffeine or just a matter of taste?

    ...clean chrome? Confirmed It surprisingly cleaned the chrome better than the commercial chrome polish used for comparison.
    ...dissolve a tooth overnight? Busted The tooth did start to dissolve, indicating that with enough time it could be completely dissolved. This is also true for any acidic solution.
    ...dissolve a steak? Busted The cola just gave the steak a soft, pasty consistency.
    ...clean a penny? Confirmed Results were surprisingly good.

    Nope. I was referring to Mythbusters as one entity; hence the use of is.
