A fun thing to know about white vinegar:
If you believe Mary Poppins (and who doesn't?), a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, but did you know that a spoonful of white vinegar helps meringues go up? It also helps set the color of vegetables when you're boiling or blanching; helps add moisture to chocolate cakes; helps keep frosting white and shiny; helps keep eggs from cracking as they're boiling; and helps perk up wilted vegetables (soak them in cold water with a teaspoon of white vinegar).
So, take your medicine if you must, but keep white vinegar (which isn't really white; it's clear) in your pantry for everything else.
