How to make distilled water for free
Technically vinegar is a weak acid. A weak acid is one which doesn't ionise fully when it is dissolved in water. A strong acid such as sulfuric, nitric or hydrochloric would fully ionize. There is a lot of chemical mumbo jumbo such as PKa, equlibrium constants and such that describes the behaviors of acids but the take home message is that weak acids will probably not ruin your equipment. Now hypochlorite (bleach) is a whole other story.

I hold both ends under the hot water tap, add a little anti-bacterial soap, and fill the hose more than halfway. Then I carry to the shower. Holding it over the shower floor in case there's a spill, in a "U" shape, I move the ends up and down so the soapy water sloshes back and forth in the hose. Then I rinse it out by holding one end under the tap while the other end lies on the shower floor.
Then I hang it up to dry. I like to do this shortly before going to bed. If I do it too early in the day the hose just hangs there drying, but never gets completely dry. Then when I go to use it it stinks sometimes.
