    I suppose its really time we did do a thread on its uses

    so here are some  

    http://frugalliving.about.com/cs/tips/a/vinegar.htm
    and some more

    Removing Stains:
    An equal mixture of salt and white vinegar will clean coffee and tea stains from china cups.

    Loosen tough stains:
    To loosen hard-to-clean stains in glass, aluminum or porcelain pots or pans, boil 1/4-cup of white vinegar with 2 cups of water. Wash in hot, soapy water.

    Brighter stainless steel:
    Spots on your stainless steel kitchen equipment can be removed by rubbing the spots with a cloth dampened with white vinegar.

    Soaking pots and pans:
    Soak normal food-stained pots and pans in full strength white vinegar for 30 minutes. Rinse in hot, soapy water.

    No cooking odors:
    Boil a teaspoon of white vinegar mixed in a cup of water to eliminate unpleasant cooking odors.

    When handling onions:
    A little white vinegar rubbed on your fingers before and after slicing onions will remove the odor of onions quickly.

    Removing fruit stains:
    To remove fruit stains from your hands, rub them with a little white vinegar and wipe with a cloth.

    Painting
    Absorb odor of fresh paint by putting a small dish of white vinegar in the room.

    Oven tip:
    Dampen your cleaning rag in white vinegar and water and use it to wipe out your oven.

    Clean tea kettles:
    If you get lime deposits in your tea kettle, gently boil 1/2-cup of white vinegar to a pot of water. Then rinse well.



    Laundry Hints

    Soft fluffy woolens
    2 cups of white vinegar added to a washer tub of water will make a good rinse for both cotton and wool - leaves them free of soap odour and soft and fluffy as new.

    Scorch marks:
    Lightly rub white vinegar on fabric that has been slightly scorched. Wipe with a clean cloth.

    Deodorant stains:
    To get rid of stains left by deodorants and anti-perspirants on washables, lightly rub with white vinegar and then launder as usual.



    Vinegar's chemical properties make it a cleaner and sanitizer with several important advantages:

    Biodegradable - a mild organic acid

    Easy to dispense and control

    Safe for stainless steel used by the food industry

    Relatively nontoxic and stable - safer for handlers

    Less likely to leave harmful residues

    Where environmental compatibility and toxicity are especially important, vinegar has been used:

    To reduce microorganisms in slaughterhouses and poultry plants

    To reduce mineral and lime deposits in lavatory pipes

    To clean vehicles and equipment used in the construction industry

    To wash and rinse walls and ceilings in restaurants and food establishments

    Loosen a rusted screw or a rusted lock. Pour some vinegar on or into the area.


    Tenderize meat. A strong vinegar and water marinade will make meat tender in just a few minutes.


    Soften a hard paint brush. Boil it in vinegar, or soak it in very hot vinegar, then wash in soapy water.

    Keep cheese from molding. Wrap it in a vinegar-soaked cloth, then place in a sealed container.

    Remove the odor of cigarette smoke. Leave bowls of vinegar around the room. Or saturate a towel with vinegar, wave it all around the room.


    Clean a slimy sponge or loofah. Soak it in a strong solution of vinegar and water for a day, then rinse several times in cold water. Let dry in the sun.

    I often see recipes that need buttermilk and of course never have any BUT you can


    Make "buttermilk" for baking. Add two tablespoons of vinegar to 6fl oz of skimned milk; let mixture stand five minutes.

    ;D
