Even though we're all pretty conscious about sugar these days, there's something so irresistibly refreshing about a nice tall glass of cold Coca-Cola. It brings back some great childhood memories, so of course when I see that one of my favorite YouTubers, CrazyRussianHacker, released a new video about Coke, I click it.
In the video, CrazyRussianHacker (real name Taras Kul) decides to take one of the world's most beloved drinks and combine it with bleach - one of the world's strongest cleaning agents. The results are shocking, to say the least. The bleach almost instantly starts stripping away at the Coke's dark color. After just a few minutes, the mixture turns almost completely clear. Considering that you can also use just Coke as a cleaning agent, I wonder if this Coke-bleach mix is the next step towards an even sparklier toilet bowl?
Finally, I probably shouldn't need to say this but, despite the mixture's resemblance to Crystal Pepsi, in no circumstances should anyone try to drink this mixture. Bleach is a very useful cleaner, but is deadly poisonous when ingested and can even burn skin if not properly diluted first. Additionally, bleach fumes are also pretty toxic so if you decide to recreate this experiment at home, please do it in a well-ventilated area.
