        The baking soda will just neutralize the vinegar though? And you’ll get salt water? Vinegar is good at getting smells out though.

          not sure on the precise chemistry involved in the reaction, but it works like a charm for getting stains and smells out of laundry, and takes smells out of counters etc. w/o using harsh chemicals. you should give it a try.

          it reacts. I can’t explain the precise chemistry behind the reaction, but it breaks organic deposits / stains / crud and actually gets funky smells out of the wash. works better than any off the shelf product I’ve tried.

          I personally use the vinegar instead, but one or another will do the trick.

          But like you said, both at once make salt water, which is less effective at killing germs and removing funk.

    Dump a cup of white vinegar into the wash, let them soak. Mildew will be gone. Add an extra rinse if it smells of vinegar.

      Vinegar and baking soda will cancel each other out. I would just use regular white distilled vinegar, don’t need to use the fancy stuff on it.

        they react, they don’t equalize, and the results do a fine job of cleaning / removing smells. look, I’m not going to try to convince you your understanding of chemistry is incorrect, but try it before you knock it.

      I once went on a 2-week vacation and forgot to take out the very full and very moist trash out of my nice and warm kitchen.

      It was… thriving, when I returned. Hard to describe how disgusting it was. I actually threw up while cleaning it out.

      For most of us who aren’t American, this format is funny.

          Yeah because before then, Americans were still very isolated. The only “bad stuff” going on was across an ocean one way, or an ocean the other way. Suddenly most Americans actually realized they live in a big world that holds more than just America.

          That is true, I likely would. But I would know that internet meme formats are cross-platform and freedom of expression dominates the internet as a whole over other priorities. So, I wouldn’t be able to do anything about it, and it wouldn’t be a great idea to try.

                  Please name the Afghani people who attacked the U.S. on 9/11. Unless you think those consequences should be killing people who had absolutely nothing to do with it. 15 of the 19 9/11 terrorists were from Saudi Arabia. Shouldn’t the consequences have involved Saudi Arabia? As someone who was orphaned by Saudis on 9/11, shouldn’t you be upset that we went to war with Afghanistan and not Saudi Arabia?

      Bush being told that it happened and sitting there like the moron he is for a long time before excusing himself is not part of the tragedy. It is absolutely something to be mocked. And this is funny.

            I hated him with a passion every single day throughout his entire tenure. Hanging Chad’s?? I opposed the opportunistic invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq so hard I was literally photographed by newspapers.

            Smug, self-righteous, and wrong in every way — you have a litmus test for humanity that smells like the mutual admiration society.

              If the majority of people would react a certain way, that’s the social norm. Your personal reaction to seeing Bush’s face on 9/11, after 22 years, is just not the norm, nor anyone else’s responsibility. This is not a graphic image, and it was not addressed to you specifically.
