I tried searching, but I wasn't too sure where to find the answer. It's a simple question so it shouldn't take too long Smile

I usually make apple cider viner: water in a 50:50 ratio every morning in a glass, just enough to sweep my face with it, but it always is a little too much.

If I use a toner bottle and put in 50:50 acv/water, will it be just as potent till the last drop? Or since it's mixed in water, and it stays that way, will the effects slowly diminish over time?

I hope you know what I am trying to ask Smile I'm trying to be more efficient and time saving as well.

Thank you!

can't give you a straight answer Rosyface but am sure it'll keep at least a month in the fridge as ACV is a natural preservative...if pickles can last so can toner - says my logic. Laughing HTH

xxndnromeoxx,

I have heard that if you use distilled water, the ACV toner should last a couple months if you put it in the fridge. i have never kept mine in the fridge but only make about a 4 oz bottle at a time.

xxndnromeoxx--Actually, i am thinking perhaps refrigerating might not be too good for the skin, since i have heard that it is better to avoid applying extremely warm and cold water/products to the face as it shocks the skin and could cause spider veins in the long run.

if you're planning to make a bigger batch, perhaps refrigerate most of it and keep say a week's supply o utside for daily use. i have never had mold or my ACV toner go bad though, but it could happen i suppose.

and you're welcome of course Smile

Kristen
