Vinegar and Compost Piles
Diaper pails and family cloths can give off strong odors. Some sites recommend using white distilled vinegar to neutralize the ammonia and fecal odors. Has anyone done this? What proportion of vinegar to size of pail is appropriate?. Some people also keep a urine-only sawdust bucket which develops ammonia odor. If vinegar is added to the urine bucket to control smells, does the vinegar help or hurt when the contents of the bucket are used to fertilize the garden or add to the compost?
