Do you boil extra strength vinegar on the stove?

I need to do it every day or my mother in law gets worried our house will smell. I think this is weird and it stings my eyes, but she insists it keeps us flu free and smelling nice.

  • Uh... Nope!

    I would never agree to that. I boiled vinegar once when I burned a pan. I read that boiling vinegar in the pan would help take the burn off. Nope and my house smelled terrible for days and it burned my eyes and hurt my throat.

    YUCK!

  • I'm not sure what they did. I bet they used plain water! Great question! You should ask it!

    Extra strength comes in gallon bottles in Malawi and Peru. It's very common to use in cleaning.

  • Idk, but will you use it to boil endive? Maybe then it will not be so offensive to your mother in law.

  • No, Loiuse2. She visits us twice a month for about a week usually. She notices if I haven't boiled the vinegar daily.
