Well, considering that it's the phosphoric acid in the beverage that 
does the work, sniffing might be a bad idea.

I remember my junior-high geometry teacher (yes, really, I do...) 
telling us about plumbers using Coke to loosen rusted pipe joints.

But while it'll soften whatever rust it can get to, it's not much of a 
penetrant or lubricant.
