Concerned about the smell of Vinegar?

According to greenerchoices.org, the smell of white vinegar is strong while wet but when drys it leaves no odor.

White Vinegar Definition:

As always I like to provide detail on any item I feature because you have the right to be informed. There are many definitions for White Vinegar but the most common: White vinegar is an oxidizing distilled alcohol or corn; high in acetic acid and is very sour and harsh-tasting. 

Organic Vinegars:

White Distilled Organic Vinegar or Spectrum Organics Vinegar claims to be safe from chemical or petroleum or Heinz® Vinegar and all claim to be petroleum free - although the FDA is not aware of any manufacturers that use petroleum to start their vinegar. Another alternative to using vinegar for cleaning is Solay Cleaning Products.

Suffer from a Yeast Allergy?

If you suffer from yeast allergies then you should avoid white vinegar and there are many types of vinegar you should avoid: apple cider vinegar, malt vinegar, balsamic vinegar, rice and wine vinegar to name a few.

Distilled vinegar has the least amount of yeast although it is not yeast-free because the process to make it distills it to concentrate the acetic acid and purify the vinegar so there is very little yeast protein in it, depending on how carefully the distillation process has been conducted.
