Monster Energy drink 'cleans mechanic's filthy workbench better than industrial brake fluid' in worrying footage (3 Pics)

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.
"It has several times the power [of brake cleaner]," claims the mechanic. "It's a little scary."
 The man's workbench was covered in stains and gunk 


The clip has been viewed more than 16 million times on Facebook alone since it was first shared on Friday.
But many online have reacted with scepticism at the clip, questioning its authenticity.


 The mechanic used Monster Energy to clean his sticky desk


"The energy drink was opened already," one Facebook user wrote in a comment liked by more than 4,600 people.
"How do we know that it’s really is Monster drink that is inside the monster can?," wrote another user.

The desk was left shiny after the energy drink was used 

Others shared scientific theories that may well prove the mechanic's findings.
Some stated that Monster Energy contains high volumes of acid, including citric acid — often used as a cleaning agent.
Acids clean entirely different chemical methods than solvents, such as industrial brake cleaners.
