What is Vinegar?
Vinegar can be produced by taking natural sugars from apples and natural starches from corn and turning them into alcohol. The alcohol is then fermented into vinegar. Different types of vinegar can be produced such as red wine vinegar, white vinegar and apple cider vinegar. Vinegar is often used as a condiment or a cooking ingredient. But the benefits of vinegar go far beyond adding flavor to a meal, and it's these benefits that can actually end up saving you money

      Thank you so much Joe and Christin. Yes, I've been using it as well to clean. What I like about it is that it doesn't leave a heavy odor in the air like some cleaners do, but it leaves the area smelling fresh and crisp.

      Great hub - I use vinegar all the time for a variety of purposes. Pure organic apple cider vinegar is also great for your health when you consume it.

      Thanks for the very useful hub! I use vinegar just about everywhere I can, but especially with my dishwater. I put baking powder in the first cycle and put vinegar in the second washing dispenser. Clean dishes every time.
