Granny's Tips Using Distilled White Vinegar

A feature on my Saturday breakfast show, which is called 'Strange But True'. A number of listeners have asked me create a list of tips using distilled white vinegar.
White distilled vinegar is made by various companies and sold in all good retail shops, but if any major supermarket chain, or manufacturer would like to sponsor this series of blogs, please do get in touch i can add you to this blog and in any forthcoming blog updates.

  here  are some interesting facts on distilled white vinegar.
