    This is some amazing stuff, i tried every thing to kill off weeds, the best thing i found was Turbo type chili, then i tried vinegar and it worked even better.

    That is awesome.

    My wife, apparently being 1/4 insect and 1/4 weed, is highly susceptible to all -icides. She caved and bought some roundup. But I'll try vinegar and maybe we can dispose of the noxious herbicide.

    I love this use:

    Appetite suppressant:
    Combine 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar and 1 tablespoon honey in an 8 ounce glass of unsweetened grapefruit juice. Drink 1 glass before each meal.




    Heh. Of course, alternate appetite suppressants include:
    - syrup of epecac
    - diesel fuel
    - dirt

    Yep, it's an excellent laundry aid too, even without baking soda.

    I love vinegar. I like the taste of white vinegar, in small amounts of course.

    I agree with you on that, Wolram. I'm trying to feature that working well in cake batters and whatnot.

    Vinegar is good to put on sunburns, I know it sounds weird, but my grandma told me and trust me it works. It takes the burn away and helps with the tanning process, but makes you smell like a salad for a bit. :biggrin:

    My oldest friend's mother and grandmother were Quakers. They did not drink tea or coffee, but drank cider vinegar and hot water daily. Both lived to ripe old ages. They'd put vinegar in a tea-cup, heat water in a tea-pot and pour it into the vinegar.
