'Practical Household Uses of Vinegar' is a slightly misleading title, as this useful little book covers the uses of not just malt or white vinegar but apple cider vinegar, fruit, herb and wine vinegars - including how to make your own. There are recipes using all the above types of vinegar, some familiar (salad dressings,) and others not so - how to make your own goats' cheese from three gallons of goats' milk...

Some uses are fairly commonplace (cleaning windows, microwaves, fridges) others are less well-known (removing water marks from leather by rubbing with a cloth dipped in vinegar and water, for example)
Vinegar apparently kills slugs, (although it would less fiddly to stamp on any that are discovered) and it can weeds when used in the garden.

There is also advice on dissolving egg-shells in vinegar to make a calcium supplement and many more health uses, including pet care.
How effective these are could be debatable - soaking the feet in vinegar for athlete's foot or expecting a poultice of bread and vinegar to remove a corn, for example.

Overall though, a neat purchase for anyone wanting to cut down on the cleaning products they use - this is probably the most useful and proven section in the book.
