    I just used some yesterday to clean the mineral buildup off of my water dispenser. I'm going to use it to descale my coffee maker today and then I always keep a gallon jug around as an organic weedkiller.

    I also have a bazillion different kinds in my pantry for cooking - white wine vin, red wine vin, raspberry blush, apple cider, distilled white.. Ok well that's not a bazillion but it's close in vinegar terms.

    but does it strike anyone as ironic, that someone would use vinegar to rid the smell of vomit from their car?

    I prefer chlorine. Works like a charm.

    From google:

    Now I just gotta figure out the process, and the next time I make a batch of beer, I can make vinegar!


    ...hooray?

    The process is really quite simple. Get some quality unfiltered (alive) vinegar and add it to your beer once it's done (no need to carbonate, you can even just do it after the primary fermentation rather than waiting for the secondary) Kinda like using a yeast culture from an existing beer. I tried it with a small amount once, but wasn't thrilled with the results, I guess I just don't like beer vinegar.

    Indeed I do. I tried to list them once, but there were too many.

    And I'm not that little, at least where it counts. :eek: ;)

    Gasoline as a weedkiller, sounds ehm...effective ;)

    It might kill everything in your garden, and poison your ground water, but, it's your garden!

    You REALLY are from Texas, aint cha Hammy :D ;)

    Vorago; I have no need for a garden, drink bottled water when I drink water, and it IS very effective. Diesel works too, but I usually have gas on hand ;)

    Our old chemistry book had in the last chapter lots of tricks on how to use simple chemicals, and meanwhile explaining the mechanism by which they work. Was intereting and the most fun part of the entire book, needless to say :smug:

    Well, with oil prices there, that's one thing, but here..

    For 98, you have to pay $5,85... and that's at the moment. The biggest oil company here announced last week that it will not anonunce the next time it will raise the prices. So far they had to wait at least a week to raise prices again - now they can do it whenever they want to. :mad:
