vinegar can be used for so many things it's unbelievable!! I have a little book I bought at the grocery store, "108 ways to use vinegar". I use it in many things and on many things. One of the things I do is pour white vinegar in the rinse reservoir of my dishwasher and my dishes come out really shiny and the glasses are sparkling.

I run a short cycle of vinegar in my dishwasher and washing machine to give them a good cleaning and make them smell good. The vinegar also dislodges any 'crud' build-up. The very best thing I have found so far is making a frying pan a non-stick pan. I paid $25.00 for a nice, heavy frying pan that is actually coated with a non-stick material but the food always sticks. I boiled two cups of white vinegar in the pan for ten minutes and now I can cook anything and nothing sticks! Apparently this will work with any type of pan. Vinegar is inexpensive and non-caustic. I love it!

I had high hopes, but this did not work for me. My eggs still stuck onto the pan after the whole process.
