20 Reasons to Stop Drinking Coke

February 19, 2014 3 min read

I've never been a huge pop fan. But in small doses, every now and then, I do like to have a coke. I can't think of the last time I had a full can (I've always preferred fountain pop because it's so watered down), but on those days where my stomach just won't settle (or I'm hungover), I'll definitely make the trek for one. I've had IBS for as long as I can remember and I was diagnosed as a celiac about 3 years ago. So needless to say, when my stomach gets angry, it gets angry. And for some reason a little bit of coke always seemed to settle it. I never really thought about why, until I saw a glass of coke eat a metal pad lock. We were on a family vacation to my grandparents house on the ocean. They don't use their boat much, so it gets some wear and tear from sitting all year. The pad lock chaining the boat to the dock had rusted shut and no amount of force could get the key to open it. My uncle came over with a glass and a can of coke. He poured the coke in, soaked the lock for about 2 minutes and literally before our eyes, the rust (and the lock) started to break away. It took under 5 minutes for the coke to eat through a layer of rust that had been sitting for over a year. I don't know if it was the rust or the coke, but the lock broke into two separate pieces. Either way, I've never looked at coke the same. How could I put something in my body that was capable of EATING metal? Then I came across this... Coca-Cola To prove Coke does not belong in the human body, here are 20 practical ways you can use Coke as a domestic cleaner: 1. Removes grease stains from clothing and fabric 2. Removes rust; methods include using fabric dipped in Coke, a sponge or even aluminum foil. Also loosens rusty bolts 3. Removes blood stains from clothing and fabric. 4. Cleans oil stains from a garage floor; let the stain soak, hose off. 5. Kills slugs and snails; the acids kills them. 6. Cleans burnt pans; let the pan soak in the Coke, then rinse. 7. Descales a kettle (same method as with burnt pans) 8. Cleans car battery terminals by pouring a small amount of Coke over each one. 9. Cleans your engine; Coke distributors have been using this technique for decades. 10. Makes pennies shine; soaking old pennies in Coke will remove the tarnish. 11. Cleans tile grout; pour onto kitchen floor, leave for a few minutes, wipe up. 12. Dissolves a tooth; Use a sealed container…takes a while but it does work. 13. Removes gum from hair; dip into a small bowl of Coke, leave a few minutes. Gum will wipe off. 14. Removes stains from vitreous china. 15. Got a dirty pool? Adding two 2-liter bottles of Coke clears up rust. 16. You can remove (or fade) dye from hair by pouring diet Coke over it. 17. Remove marker stains from carpet. Applying Coke, scrubbing and then clean with soapy water will remove marker stains. 18. Cleans a toilet; pour around bowl, leave for a while, flush clean. 19. Coke and aluminum foil will bring Chrome to a high shine. 20. Strips paint off metal furniture. Soak a towel in Coke and lay it on the paint surface.   Now can you imagine what is does to your stomach lining?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 4-6 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
