Secondly, it's so. stinkin'. cheap. Seriously! Like, $2 for an entire gallon.
Furthermore, it's versatile. I challenge you to name another single ingredient that can de-grease a stove, curdle milk, and condition hair.
That being said, sometimes when I use vinegar to clean I get overwhelmed by the vinegaryness of it. My most recent solution is to steep citrus peels in white vinegar in the fridge for a few weeks, strain out the pulp, and then pour the citrus vinegar into a spray bottle. Then, it doesn't smell so pungent. It's mildly pleasant, if I do say so myself!
I did this with orange peels a few months back, and it has made cleaning
I am currently steeping some lemon peels in vinegar, and can't wait to start cleaning with that when my orange vinegar runs out!
No word yet on cooking with this vinegar. I think if I am going to do that, I should get organic citrus fruit, and do a little more research on how shelf-stable it is.
