Apparently Energy Drink Cleans Better Than Brake Cleaner

A video has emerged on social media appearing to demonstrate how useful energy beverages can be — and not just for drinking.

A mechanic filmed his dirty workbench, strewn with sticky stains, and tried to clean them with a standard industrial brake cleaner.

He wipes some of the fluid on the desk but it appears to remove hardly any of the gunk.

But he then pours “a little bit” of Monster Energy on the desk and, after some effortless scrubbing, the mess quickly vanishes.
