Hello! Let’s talk vinegar – specifically, where to buy white vinegar in bulk.
Glass bottles of white vinegar can be picked up relatively cheaply from the supermarket or corner shop. It’s around 80p for just shy of 500 ml. And what I love is that the glass bottles are very useful. Simply pop a spray nozzle on the bottle once you’re done and you’ve got an instant eco-friendly cleaning bottle.
The thing is, when you’re using vinegar in relatively higher quantities, the price soon adds up. Shop assistants also give you funny looks when you start buying five bottles of vinegar in one transaction. Voice of experience here.
To save money, and to save blushes, instead, I buy my white vinegar in bulk online and get it delivered to my door.
Looking to buy vinegar in bulk too? I have found the cheapest place to purchase white vinegar in bulk, Let me share my secrets with you.
My top tips
eBay is by far the cheapest place I’ve found to buy vinegar in bulk sizes. Early in the New Year, I picked up 20 litres of vinegar. This cost me a mere £7.94 with free postage. That’s around 40p per litre, compared to £1.60 a litre when buying the glass bottles. A whopping saving of £1.20 per litre.
The price tends to fluctuate on eBay. At the time of writing the average price is around £15 with free postage. This still works out cheaper than buying from the supermarket, as this works out at 75p a litre. Do check here* to see the current going rate.
Worried about storing 20 litres of vinegar? Worry not, the vinegar arrives in four 5 litre cartons. These are a lot more manageable to handle and store than one 20 litre container. To make life easier I decant the vinegar into a glass bottle to make it even easier to pour.
