Would you mind telling us what you do with the vinegar to sterilize water?
I’ve done some searching and can find very little reference to it. I can understand the acidic nature of vinegar would help kill pathogens but the only reference I found said it required a very strong concentration of vinegar.
Sorry....I don’t sterilize water with vinegar....I use it in place of bleach for cleaning around the house and in my washing machine with each load. I was responding to someone who seems to insist I MUST have liquid bleach at all times, instead of the pool shock I’m looking for.
I did find these, though...regarding using grapefruit seed extract and Hydrogen Peroxide and other products...
