**********NMC Years ago, fellow Engineers used to clean their
"metal desk tops, a rubberized asphaltic " material, with Coca Cola. The
soda sure cut thru ALL of the polish layers. BUT, since my father used
Coke to clean the terminals of the car's battery, I refrained from using
it on my desk top.
I think your "gut" thanks you. Now, if I could only back off of my six or
seven cans a day "habit" ....
