    Question 1 gallon white vinegar

    Hi,
    I use a lot of white vinegar for cleaning and laundry and want to buy it in 1 gallon plastic container instead of the small glass bottles a la Heinz... Anybody knows where to find this?

    Call up these guys and buy some Acetic Acid.
    Then dilute it with water at home:

    Or, you can buy liter ones from here :

    I do what HowardCoombs suggested to make a vinegar solution for cleaning. Remember add acid to water, not water to acid. I also buy rubbing alcohol in 6-10 litre bottles to make a home cleaning solution. Works well. (Hard to resist buying more kinds of essential oils when there in that shop, though!)

    Thanks for the suggestion about Acetic Acid, may consider it. Meanwhile I remembered A&M US Groceries and gave them a call. They do have 1 gallon and 1.3 gallon size white vinegar but refused to tell me the price over the phone – cannot understand why! Now, I am not so keen to travel from NT to Central just to check the price of one item, so if any of you guys regularly shop at A&M, could you help me out to check the price for me?

    I know Q Club in Tai Mei Tuk or Sai Kung has gallon bottles of Heinz vinegar at around $75. Local shops sell vinegar cheaper.

    Yes the hunt for something you take for granted as being available at Costco or Walmart in giant sizes for a few bucks is insane. Sure the price differential will be outrageous.

    Did I not see exactly this in 759 stores recently. Worth popping your head in the nearest one or two to see if they've got any left.

    Yes. But products like Dettol tend to be more popular in HK
