Where can I buy sensibly priced white vinegar for cleaning?

The last lot I got was 2 huge glass jars of Sarsons- very cheap on special, after Xmas (2010). It was allegedly for pickling but I use it for window cleaning. I have a conservatory that gets dots of mould on the glass so needs a good twice yearly clean, so spray-on Windolene proves rather expensive, and not so effective imo.

CAN I find any more? Asda only had teensy bottles of bespoke white wine-esque herb infused vinegars. I want a 1 or 2 litre bottle of el cheapo- cheaply!

Where, oh where?

PS This is also in 'Chat' due to higher traffic!

Watching with interest. I always end up buying the 500ml glass bottles from the supermarket and it ain't that cheap.

Yes please! Would also like to know!

We get massive 5 litre bottles from our nearest Chinese supermarket. You can also get smaller spray bottles from Poundland smile

I find Tesco's own brand 500ml bottles not too expensive, about 60p iirc. No chinese supermarkets or poundlands round here unfortunately.

Chinese supermarket here too. Five litre bottle was £2.50 ish, maybe less.

Try any asian supermarket type place... those that sell to caterers/take aways tend to have them

John Lewis & waitrose both sell it for under £1 in a handy spray bottle near all the cleaning stuff if that helps?

Sainsburys Basic vinegar is something like 25p a bottle. Descales the kettle a treat.

Cash and carry? Quite cheap last time I was in.

France/Belgium. The hypermarkets there do it super cheap. <helpful> In the past DF has said "do you want to bring me back some wine" and I've said, no, but can I have 6 litres of the cheapest vinegar please.

Bookers sell it in 5l bottles. Quite cheap if I recall correctly.

pack of 3 for just over £4

48p for 500ml in ASDA is best I have found.

Thanks, all!

Chinese supermarket here too. We buy a lot of our food there anyway, so buy the big containers of vinegar at the same time.

Yes, I've found ~50p for ~500ml to be around the cheapest that I can get (easily) too. I've looked online, but delivery always makes it much more £.

Wilko do cleaning vinegar, not too expensive. (But can't remember the price)

I just pick up the cheap white vinegar on the rare occasion I set foot in our local Tesco. It's in a plastic squirty bottle, these days, which knocks down its environmental credentials alarming but isn't half useful for squirting onto scummy tiles etc.

Mallorie Fri 06-Oct-17 19:35:11

25p at Aldi.

Queenofthedrivensnow Fri 06-Oct-17 19:37:07

Think it's 45p in Lidl but not the gallon bottle I want

Rudi7 Sat 07-Oct-17 18:30:24

- That's 6p / Ltr.
