Make sure you wear gloves. Coke's sugar will penetrate your skin. :'(
I am seriously thinking about testing it in the toilet.

back in the dark ages here Ma used to concoct various potions to spray on the gardens.
aside from making things stink i don't recall them being effective for much at all.
i had real negative thoughts about those potions that used tobacco juice as tobacco mosaic virus isn't something you want in the gardens.
the sugar in coke was supposed to help feed the soil bacteria, which in fact it might, but for $0.40/lb regular sugar granules are a much better buy if that's what you're going to do with them.
the other trace item of interest in coca cola is phosphoric acid. can't say it would hurt or help much at the amounts often recommended to be used.
one of the other commonly recommended things was cheap beer. we still have an unopened case of beer in the garage from quite some years ago. i keep thinking i should open one and dump it in a hole sometime but then i'd have to herd drunk worms around... i did make progress on the unopened beer can front a few weeks ago i did open one loose one and dumped it out and put the can in the refund bag. i think we found that one along the road (some drunk mistakenly threw a full beer out instead of the empty? dunno. thought it was funny anyways, $0.10 is $0.10).
i'm glad to say that Ma no longer bothers with such things and i've not noticed any significant increase or decrease in bugs of the targetted kinds that she was after.
