    It is not a cost thing just a "I wonder" thing. Probably ISB is less expensive??? But if I ever need to do an Emegency Stopectomy, it is good to know What choices I have at hand!!!

    Distilled white vinegar is the best choice. Dilute accordingly to get a 1,5 - 2% acetic acid solution.

    From my recollection (I'm at work - miles from the kitchen) table vinegar is usally 5% actetic acid so 1 part vinegar to 2 parts water will give you a 1.66% solution . Again from my recollection the cost would work out very similarly , in fact if you buy 5Litre bottles of stop its bound to be cheaper than vinegar . Interesting question though - always wondered myself!

    At $7 for a 474ml bottle of Kodak ISB, that works out to 30 cents per liter, so if 5% vinegar is more than 60 cents per liter, the Kodak is cheaper for a 2-2.5% mix.

    Now for the really important question. Can I use my Stop Bath on my salad? And if so, what dilution should I use?

    As mentioned use distilled vinegar, the stuff that looks like water, not the brown stuff. And not any of the exotic vinegars like Balsamic.

    It might be an interesting effect! Balsamic vs. apple cider vs. red wine...
