    The real deal is glacial acetic acid, but you need to be careful in how you handle it to dilute.

    Re: Citric acid for 1-shot stop bath

    I am trying to use up Kodak Indicator Stop Bath for one shot Jobo film runs. I can't stand the smell anymore. I use citric acid for tray use. I was given some Ilfostop (citric acid indicator type) I can't stand the smell of Kodak F-5 fix either. Horrible

    Since switching to Citric Acid a few years ago i haven't looked back. Put a heaping teaspoon in a liter or so and off I go. You don't need to be anal about the amount.

    Which is exactly why I use cleaning vinegar. Same stuff, just way more dilute so it isn't as dangerous.

    Does 'cleaning vinegar' refer to distilled?

    I use vinegar at school to cut costs. I buy it from the dollar store. Dilute it to 1%.
