    I bought 2 bottle of 5 litre distilled vineger from a Chinese supermarket for 4 pound each.

    Bargain I think, I like to diluted it with water and ecover for cleaning windows and sills.

    If you like using vineger with soap, worth checking out the nearer Chinese supermarket where you live.

    Distilled vineger is fantastic for upvc, also removing hard water mark and plus leaving shining streaks free windows

    You don't have to use a lot of vineger for cleaning windows, I use about 95% water then put vineger & ecover.

    I diluted it with water, do not see any harm using it on it own.

    I remember when I was a young kid my nan use white vineger for cleaning pretty much everything, kitchen, bathroom, windows and even clothes!

    I think she used something else as well with it like lemon and baking soda.

    It's only in he 20th century really that ppl started buying off the self products for cleaning.
    Before that they used very simple easy to get hold of ingredients that worked just as well.
