    Maybe this is a stupid question, but where do you find "cleaning vinegar." I just use regular grocery aisle white vinegar for cleaning. Is this more concentrated?

    Hi Steve ~ that's not a stupid question at all! I found my cleaning vinegar at Walmart but I don't think it's available everywhere just yet. The cleaning vinegar has 1 percent more acidity than regular vinegar and that 1 percent boosts its cleaning power by 20 percent. That being said, regular vinegar will work but you may have to wait a little longer for the vinegar to cut through the lime or you may need to repeat the process for it to be as effective as the cleaning vinegar. P.S. The cleaning vinegar is in the same aisle as the regular vinegar at the grocery store.

      Thank you, Mary Beth! I had no idea. In addition, there are lots of recipes for weed killer and poison oak/ivy but the white vinegar you get at the grocery store just isn't strong enough. Recently read an article about the percentage of acidity and you can get stronger vinegar even up to 30 percent. Did not mention "where" to purchase it though and have not researched it at this point. Think I will Google, "where to buy cleaning vinegar 20% and 30%.

    I noticed cleaning vinegar runs about .10 more than plain old white vinegar

    I would like to know if anyone has any idea if there is a faucet finish that holds up better or resists lime deposits better than another....we are about to remodel our kitchen (and, eventually, bathrooms), and we have such terrible lime deposits that it actually "eats" chunks of the faucet, and/or builds up in a little "pile" on the faucet -- GROSE!! Maybe the answer is that I just need to use better preventative maintenance?????
