Behold vinegar, one of the most common household items found today. We all keep it in the house, but do we really know its true capabilities? 


According to zingzap.com, vinegar came about purely by accident. Some genius forgot about his wine cask until its contents had fermented past the alcohol stage.  The word "vinegar" comes from the French, who named it "vin aigre," which, interestingly enough, directly translates to sour wine. Vinegar has been produced since then from varying ingredients including, but not limited to, grapes, fruits, berries, beer, potatoes and grains.
