Default Balsamic vinegar

I really, really hate the smell of apple cider vinegar. It makes me gag to smell it, but I bear it because I like the results of ACV rinses (now the honeygar). Would balsamic vinegar work the same?

I would think it would be too sticky from the sugar/sweetness.

What about white vinegar? I think it has a more mellow scent?

Ah. True. I didn't think of that. I am not too fond of white vinegar either, but it is much more tolerable than ACV.

You could try citric acid. 1/8 t to 1 1/4 c water.
