Ask the Expert: Storing Vinegar for Cleaning

Jun 23, 2014

Q: We use vinegar for cleaning. Do we store it with food or chemicals?

A: Vinegar can be stored with food, since it is a food. However, I would recommend having separate containers of vinegar – one for cleaning and one for food use. Mark one gallon-sized bottle, "For Cleaning Only. Not for Food Use." and store it on a shelf ABOVE cleaning chemicals to minimize any potential contamination, if it were to be used for food product. This storage scenario avoids violations from EcoSure and health departments.
