How to Make White Vinegar:

  1. Start by obtaining a vinegar mother or starter culture, which can be purchased online or from a homebrew store.
  2. Combine the mother culture with a mixture of water and sugar (use 1 cup of sugar per gallon of water) in a sterilized container. Cover the container with a cloth or paper towel and secure with a rubber band.
  3. Place the container in a warm, dark place and let it ferment for several weeks, stirring occasionally.
  4. After a few weeks, the mixture should have turned into vinegar. Strain out the mother culture and transfer the vinegar to a clean container for storage.

  2. Laundry: White vinegar can be used as a natural fabric softener and to remove stains and odors from clothing. Add 1/2 cup of vinegar to your washing machine during the rinse cycle.
  3. Cooking: White vinegar is a staple in many recipes, from pickling vegetables to making salad dressings.
  4. Gardening: White vinegar can be used to kill weeds and discourage pests in your garden. Mix equal parts vinegar and water in a spray bottle and apply directly to weeds or around the base of plants.
  5. Personal care: White vinegar can be used as a natural hair conditioner and to soothe sunburned skin. Mix 1/4 cup of vinegar with 1 cup of water and apply to your hair or skin, then rinse thoroughly.
