Tips

  • How long does distilled white vinegar last? The precise answer depends to a large extent on storage conditions — to maximize the shelf life of distilled white vinegar, store in a cool, dark cupboard, away from direct heat or sunlight.
  • To maximize the shelf life of distilled white vinegar, keep the bottle tightly sealed after opening.
  • Properly stored, distilled white vinegar will stay safe indefinitely without a loss of quality.
  • Is distilled white vinegar safe to use after the "expiration" date on the package? Yes, provided it is properly stored and the package is undamaged — commercially packaged distilled white vinegar may carry a "Best By," "Best if Used By," "Best Before," or "Best When Used By" date but this is not a safety date, it is the manufacturer's estimate of how long the distilled white vinegar will remain at peak quality.
  • Does distilled white vinegar ever spoil? No, commercially packaged distilled white vinegar does not spoil and will remain safe provided it has been stored properly.
