1 Additional Answer
When you mix salt and vinegar, salt will dissolve in the vinegar, which is mostly water. However, a chemical reaction will also occur with the vinegar's acetic acid (CH3COOH) and the ions of sodium and chlorine from the salt, producing sodium acetate and a dilute solution of hydrochloric acid. This is a solution that can be used to clean coins, rust on the furniture and old doors and even mildew and mold that have stained corners of your home.
