    I've used regular Vinegar for years and it DOES do a good job, but everything is so fast paced now that time is a valuable commodity so if you have time to wait, use your regular vinegar...if you don't look for the stronger cleaning vinegar...LOL It's

    Sandra Cook You certainly can use the regular vinegar. The cleaning vinegar is just a little stronger but the regular will work. You may need to just use a little more, let it sit a little longer or rub a bit longer but it will work. : )

    Can I use regular vinegar the same way, until I can get some of the cleaning vinegar?

    This is a great tip! We have very hard water, and keeping the water rings and marks off of tubs, faucets, toilets, etc, is virtually impossible. I'll definitely be giving this a try.

    Judith W are you from this country, Russia perhaps? Wow folks need to loosen up a bit. Snap judgements are not helpful or inviting.

    Thank you I am having a wonderful day. I must disagree $2.98 is not a good price for vinegar even if it is a bit more acidic. The corporations have caught on, gave it a new function, made it stronger even though its not necessary and put it out there at

    Liza Ramirez ~ I paid $2.98 for the 1 gallon size of the Cleaning Vinegar : ) I have seen it in other stores recently for less than that ~ just an FYI ~ have a wonderful day!

    I'm sure its going to cost a pretty penny too. I plan on simply putting it in a pan and boiling it down, now the acidic percentage will be higher without paying more. These companies are so out of control, thats my personal opinion. Blessings everyone! :)

    @Judith W....This is a discussion to share ideas not a place to post rude comments. Steve G. was just asking a question about where to purchase Cleaning Vinegar. The only one here acting stupid is you. Chill out!

    It's all a factor of the strength of the acetic acid in it. Acetic acid comes as strong as 58% but of course, that's not vinegar, just acid.

    There is also horticultural vinegar, 20% strength, which you can dilute to whatever suits your needs. It's available at those two big box home stores. The water is so hard where I live that I use it full strentgh to soak shower heads and such.

    Judith W. - she said 1% MORE -- not just 1%. Normal vinegar is 5% acidity, 1% more would be 6%. You can't dilute up.
