    from a legal standpoint I would not do that, imagine trying to explain to some attorney that you made your own mix, no chemistry background and no history of success.....your asking for it.

    Vinegar will also change the ph of the soil and is toxic to vegetation...

    OK.....vinegar freezes at 28degF, that is straight vinegar and not even cut with water yet. You will be creating ice by using it.
