    I have a question mixing the vinegar with the peroxide. I read on another blog that you shouldn't mix the two because it loose's it's potency I think is what it said. I'm just wondering if anyone else has heard of this? Thank you, Elaine

    They should never be mixed together. Because there is also water in this concoction it may be a bit safer, but here's what I found on the web:

    " ...never mix hydrogen peroxide and vinegar together in one container. The resulting chemical, peracetic acid, can harm you when mixed together this way if you accidentally create a strong concentration in this fashion. Peracetic acid also has entirely different characteristics and properties than either hydrogen peroxide or vinegar."

    Also:

    "The direct combination of the two substances, hydrogen peroxide and vinegar, produces a strong oxidizing agent known as peracetic acid (also known as peroxyacetic acid, or PAA).

    The reaction occurs when hydrogen peroxide reacts with the active component in vinegar, acetic acid.

    Peracetic acid is a much weaker acid than the reactant, acetic acid; however, it has different properties and characteristics. Due to its high oxidizing potential, peracetic acid is often used as a sanitizing product. It is effective against a large range of bacteria and, in food, breaks down to acetic acid and hydrogen peroxide, which are considered to be safe and environmentally friendly. This gives the substance application in sanitation of hard surfaces on which food is prepared, wineries and breweries, greenhouse facilities and even directly onto foods such as vegetables, fruits and meat.

    The substance at high concentrations can be highly corrosive and cause irritation to the skin, eyes and respiratory system. Long-term exposures to the substance can cause permanent lung damage."
