    Could try Roans chemicals in JHB...not sure where they are exactly. Or wine making shops.....

    Sorry for for asking Marthinal but why not vinigar....this is what gives vinigar its smell (if i remember correctly) also known as hydrogen acetate

    As for 5 % Acetic Acid, I have not heard of it in that concentration. The reason being concentration is measured in "mass' and at 5 - 8 % it is vinigar

    Any chem boffs please correct me if i am wrong

    Acetic acid is vinegar AKA CH3 COOH. Most vinegars are 5 percent. If you really want to be very specific call glassworld.co.za
