Dri-Pak White Vinegar


(3 customer reviews)

This mildly acidic cleaner is effective for cleaning windows, mirrors and work surfaces. It also has de-scaling properties and is, therefore, ideal for removing limescale (however, it cannot be used on plated surfaces, such as gold plated taps). White Vinegar has a mild odour but the smell soon disappears. 500ml

Using Dri-Pak White Vinegar around (and outside) the home

White Vinegar is a non-toxic traditional cleaning solution that has been used safely for centuries. The active ingredient in White Vinegar is acetic acid, which has both cleaning and descaling properties. Although White Vinegar has a mild odour, it gradually dissipates. This is in contrast to malt vinegar, which is unsuitable for cleaning. It’s also great for a range of laundry applications.

Be aware that many of the ‘white vinegar cleaners’ on the market are NOT pure white vinegar; they may have synthetic fragrance and/or surfactants added. Dri-Pak white vinegar is PURE diluted acetic acid. This may not matter to you, but if you’re looking to descale appliances, particularly kettles, coffee machines and sterilisers then you should use a pure white vinegar. The same applies if you have allergies or sensitivity to perfumes.

Multi-purpose cleaner and descaler

White Vinegar is mildly acidic, making it an extremely versatile multi-purpose cleaner. Many of the marks left behind on glass surfaces like shower screens are actually limescale deposits.

Dri-Pak Pure White Vinegar

White vinegar is perfect for a wide range of cleaning tasks including:

  • Cleaning glass (including car windscreens), mirrors and surfaces
  • Removing limescale from taps, draining boards, kettles and kitchen appliances
  • Clean the detergent drawer and door seals of your washing machine.
  • Treating pet urine stains and the residual odour. White Vinegar will deter your pet from returning to the same spot
  • Use occasionally in your carpet cleaning machine to help keep the water jets free of limescale. It will clean the carpet and won’t leave an odour
  • Use in place of standard rinse aid in your dishwasher to keep glasses from going streaky/milky and the bonus is that it will help keep the machine clean.

Most cleaning white vinegars actually have perfume and surfactant added, whereas Dri-Pak white vinegar is pure diluted acetic acid. People with allergies should use such a version. Also if you are descaling appliances that you’ll be consuming water from, such as kettles, coffee machines and even baby bottle sterilisers, you will also want a PURE version to avoid tainting the appliance or causing bubbles.

Dri-Pak Pure White Vinegar

If you don’t like the odour of white vinegar, why not add a few drops of a ‘sympathetic’ essential oil, such as apple. It will be difficult to actually mask the odour completely because acetic acid is a strong deodoriser in its own right. You could even leave some citrus peel and other natural ingredients such as cinnamon to provide a natural fragrance.

As it is an acid, you should not use white vinegar or granite or marble worktops, but you can use Soda Crystals, Liquid Soda Crystals or Bicarb Cream.

There are plenty of articles on the internet with various tips, like this one on Tips Bulletin, but be aware that our white vinegar is for cleaning and laundry and not the culinary uses.

Top Tip

Dri-Pak Pure White Vinegar

When cleaning windows, wipe horizontally inside and vertically on the exterior so that you can tell which side any remaining dirt is. Some people recommend using scrunched up newspaper, but the ink can get on your hands and we prefer micro-fibre cloths, especially now they are inexpensive. Remember never to wash micro-fibre cloths with fabric conditioner as it clogs the fibres. Use white vinegar instead of fabric conditioner in your machine.

    This is a must have for me, it can be used to clean so much, and bring things back to pretty much brand new (personally for tough stains I use this and a bit of borax)

  2. Lucy Blinko (verified owner)

    Can’t imagine life without white vinegar. I use it all over the place, including as a rinse aid in the dishwasher. I don’t think I’ve ever placed a Wikaniko order without buying a bottle of this! Highly recommended.

    What a BARGAIN buy! It has so many uses!
    I love it for bringing the sparkle back to my bathroom sinks and is brilliant for removing water marks on shower doors and stainless steel kitchen sinks with minimal effort! For just £1.49, I don’t know why everyone wouldn’t always want a bottle of this in stock!
