      I've not done it, but I would think it would make a good sink un-blocker, say, if you're short of carbolic acid for example?

      Using coke to defrost a windshield sounds like it could get you in trouble if it dripped onto your car's paint. I've heard that it's a pretty good paint remover! Using coke to settle your stomach is a very old doctor prescribed coke syrup for my kids over 40 years ago! You've listed quite a few uses that I never heard of before.

      I'll go in for useful. Yes, I have heard of coke being used as a stain remover.

      I have never heard of coke being in any way good for the stomach.

      Coke as a cleaner of coins is well known though I probably wouildn't use it on really old coins for fear it might eat rather than clean. Certainly I wouldn't use it on some foreign coins such as those produced in Indonesia where the metal content is very low.

      I didn't know coke worked for hiccups and bee stings. And I certainly didn't know you could defrost a windshield with it. Thanks for these tips! Definitely going to keep them handy.
