  1. I like the look of your products and have already bought a large premium grade vinegar to try on cleaning. When I first looked at the site there were recipes for using vinegar for getting bore water stain off toilets and other handy hints. Unfortunately I can’t find the ones I saw at that time. Can you help please? cheers, glenda
