Thanks for the extra tips. I also use malt vinegar (either as a window cleaner, floor cleaner added to white vinegar also, or in a small bowl near a fan) as it helps repel flies in the summer. And I add white vinegar to my final wash in the washing machine as it works like a conditioner without the expense of a conditioner.
