    When i first started using vinegar instead of conditioner i used the white for about two weeks and then thought that i`d try the plain old brown as it was much cheaper, i`ve been using it ever since for a couple of years at least and i`ve never had any problems.

    What i do like are the antibacterial qualities which are welcome when washing pet bedding.

    Hi am a vinegar fan but have never heard of using it as conditioner in the machine. Please give me the courage to try it. I have sometimes used brown vingar to clean with and always wondered why white is recommended? I think it smells stronger could be imaginig it?
    thanx for this great tip if I get the courage?

    I used it to clean my dishwasher rather than the stuff I used to buy and I haven't looked back! Amazing, so clean and yet no smell afterwards of vinegar. I am going to try it in my wash when I do my towels first.
    Will it be ok at 30c?

    Do you mean you use it instead of dishwasher powder, conditioner or to clean the machine on an empty cycle?

    PS I think there is a difference between malt vinegar and non brewed condiment, but I can't for the life of me remember what it is, or whether using it would have different result

    Yippee! Finally a question for which I have a definite (if personal)answer -

    Vinegar tastes and smells wonderful on chips - NBC has no effect whatever.

    I use dilute brown vinegar to condition my hair & keep dandruff down, & it's good for cleaning windows, 2 or 3 tbsp in a bowl of water. It's also reviving to wash yr upper body in vinegar & water 50/50 when you're tired, & it takes the itch from insect bites applied neat, soothes sunburn when diluted.....there's a little book about it, available in some libraries.

    the problem i have is that i LIKE the smell of (yellow) lenor/ comfort, and the smell of my hair conditioner!!! and the stuff stinks until it's dry...

    for those of you that use vinegar on your hair, how much and what do you do? does you hair smell like a chippy till it's dry? I dont use a hairdryer so it'd take a LONG time!!!

    Added bonus when using vinegar as a conditioner in your washing machine...no more black yucky drawer! I was amazed to find that it just doesn't happen, honest! In fact, if you put the vinegar in ready for the next wash and leave it, it removes any tidelines in the compartment from previous conditioner use.
    I use brown vinegar all of the time and haven't had any problems with staining etc.:)
    The beautiful thing about learning is nobody can take it away from you.
