    So, this condiment seems to be a wonder "drug", cleaner, etc. Tell me, what have you used vinegar for - besides salad dressing.

    I use it each night - warm water in a plastic shoe box and 3 Tablespoons white vinegar. Soak my feet for 15 minutes. I no longer have any cracked heals, corns or nail problems.... I'm a diabetic. Must take care of the tootsies.

    I do a final rinse of my hair in the shower with white vinegar. It keeps my hair soft and silky and it actually cuts down on static. It helps bring out the natural highlights, too. You can use apple cider vinegar, too. I use white vinegar because the apple cider vinegar makes my blonde hair darker.

    I use vinegar for everything!

    I use it in the laundry to keep odors down (especially if I forget I have a load in there for a long time!!) I can't use scented detergents because of allergies.

    I also use it to clean my spa tub on a monthly basis. Just fill about jets, add one cup of vinegar and turn jets on for about 15 minutes. Keeps it nice and clean.

    Ah, I have to tell my neighbors about the spa. They have one and the water treatment solution gives the wife a terrible rash! Maybe cleaning with vinegar on a regular basis might work better.

    I used to soak my diamond wedding rings in vinegar to clean and make them sparkle.

    Clean hairbrushes and combs with a vinegar/water soak.

    Thanks for the tip. My DH is diabetic and his feet will crack a lot. I'll start him on this remedy.
