Video: Apparently, Monster Energy Drink Cleans Better Than Brake Cleaner

Weird | By Ian Anglin | May 13, 2018

A new video has emerged on YouTube and other websites which shows a mechanic having a problem cleaning his workbench from gunk and other sticky stuff. At first, the mechanic uses industrial strength brake fluid, but to no avail. All of the gunk was left on his desk, however, in the second part of the video, the mechanic uses a can of Monster Energy to clean his desk. Viewers were shocked to learn that the can of energy drink was better in cleaning the desk. We have no information whether the drink in the can was actual Monster Energy or something else, as the can was opened before the video began recording.

New Video Shows Monster Energy Can Be Useful as a Cleaning Product

A new viral video of unknown authenticity shows that a can of Monster Energy can act as a cleaning product. In some cases it works even stronger than industrial strength brake fluid. The video, which has been called "worrying" by many of the viewers, shows a mechanic working on his workbench, and testing out his Monster drink in terms of how strong it is in cleaning his filthy workbench.

The Mechanic's workbench was full of sticky stains and other stuff you would expect to find on an old and dirty workbench. The worrying thing that happened in this video is that the Monster Energy drink cleaned that workbench like there is no tomorrow. While that may not be a bad thing, it does seem confusing to some users at first sight. Perhaps the sugar content or another type of compound is what is causing the drink to be so useful at cleaning things?

The Industrial Strength Brake Fluid Didn't Work as Well

Before the mechanic poured some of the Monster Energy drink on his workbench, he first poured industrial-strength brake fluid. Brake fluid is a high viscosity liquid, and many mechanics have been known to use it for the removal of gunk and other sticky compounds from their workbenches and automobile parts. In this video, the industrial strength brake fluid did not work as well as the can of Monster Energy.

In the video, you can clearly see the mechanic trying his best to clean his workbench with the brake fluid, and whil he wiped out all of the brake fluid from his desk, the results were not good. Hardly any of the months (if not years) old gunk was removed from his desk. After that he pours some of his energy drink on the workbench, and magic happened. Virtually all of the gunk and nasty stuff was cleaned from his desk.

"It Has Several Times the Power of Brake Cleaner"

According to the mechanic featured in the viral video, he said that "It has several times the power [of brake cleaner], It's a little scary." While the results were a little shocking, there is no reason why a person should be scared. Many other mainstream drinking products (like many soda drinks) have actually been shown to work in a seminal manner to energy drinks. The problem may lurk much more deeply than any particular brand or producer of a soft drink.

However, some Facebook and other social media users have been quick to judge the video. One poster claimed that the can of Monster Energy was already opened before the video began recording, meaning that we have no guarantee that the drink was actual Monster Energy. It is completely possible that something else was in the can. Perhaps some type of substance that has been known to easily remove gunk from work surfaces.

When you fly by private jet charter, you experience travel comfort known only to those who know private jets. And nothing illustrates this luxury better than celebrity private jets. Stars with their own private aircraft fly fancy.


John Travolta, the star of 70s cult movies like “Grease” and “Saturday Night Fever”, is not only one of the most famous Hollywood actors, but also one of the best celebrity pilots. John Travolta is a bonafide aviation enthusiast with five private planes total, which he parks on his front lawn. His most impressive aircraft is a customized Boeing 707-138 (as pictured above), a beast of a plane that he acquired in 1998 upon his promotion to an honorary pilot of Qantas, the Australian airline.


Oprah Winfrey’s production company HARPO bought her custom-built Global Express XRS VIP business jet to provide the media mogul and her associates with maximum aviation comfort. Oprah’s private jet features designer fixtures in the bathroom and galley, along with an exquisite all-leather interior. The aircraft was designed by Bombardier Aerospace to perform as a premier long-range business jet. Custom design allowed for an enhanced cabin layout with nine cushy leather seats, aesthetically-placed lighting, and additional luxury amenities. The jet cruises through the air at high speeds, made possible by two Rolls-Royce BR710 turbofan engines, which produce enough power to send HARPO clear across the map with only one refuel stop


Tom Cruise played an elite naval fighter jet pilot in the blockbuster movie “Top Gun”, and he now indulges his real love for flying in his own Gulfstream IV, one of the finest celebrity private jets around. Cruise’s beautiful business jet accommodates up to 19 passengers, providing comfort and class with state-of-the-art furnishings and aircraft technology. The jet even automatically refreshes the air inside the cabin every two minutes. Designed by Gulfstream Aerospace, Cruise’s jet is powered by two Rolls-Royce Tay 611-8 engines, propelling the aircraft to a maximum altitude of 45,000 feet over a maximum range of 7,820 km, zipping through the air at speeds up to Mach 0.80.


Mark Cuban, business mogul and owner of the Dallas Mavericks, landed himself in the Guinness Book of World Records for purchasing his Boeing 767-277 online in 1999, making “the largest single e-commerce transaction”. Cuban modified the jet with large, custom seats to give his team’s lengthy players plenty of room while flying.
