Let us use Mr Jim Fuller's absurd opinion to examine nature. Carbon (C)is the basis of all life on earth. Sounds awesome. Oxygen (O2) is needed by all living things to metabolize...well...everything. Now let's mix those two...oh oh! The chemoreceptors in my body are over reacting. Why am I breathing so fast. CO2 combines with hemoglobin 19X better than O2. Now my carbon dioxide level is at a critically high level...ohhh...I getting light headed....whoops I passed out... now I am dead. How can this be? Because I took completely harmless elements, and combined them into a by-product that can kill. I didn't join this website to read this garbage. The creator of this thread has a right to their opinion. I have tried their advice, and it works on some things, but not on all. Someone made a good point about the potential damage to soil from the acetic acid. I don't know, but I refrain to using the vinegar to my driveway, and sidewalks where it does not seem to have a damaging effect.
