    Can we buy 70% here in the USA or is it all watered down for our safety?

    You can buy on the Amazon - amazon.com/75-Pure-Vinegar-Concentrated-Industrial/dp/B07DKCY2W3

    In Russia you can buy in almost any supermarket, price is about a 1 dollar a half a liter (17 oz).

    Thanks for the Amazon link. There are quite a few things that will be easier in Russia, but we won't be there until next year. A couple of Magnit stores nearby and a Metro 30 miles away.

    I don't know about the 70%, but that is known as vinagroon, and I use it as a leather dye. I make mine with regular old pickling vinegar and steel wool. Same idea, I just rinse the steel wool with acetone first to get the oils off.

    I haven't tried it with wood, but on leather it will react with the tannins in the leather and turn it a dark black that is through and through and won't rub off. A rinse with baking soda and let dry and then oil and wax.

    Шикарный цвет!! Только на сколько он устойчив к уф лучам и как он реагирует на масло, лаки, воск? Если есть опыт, отпишись. Я имею ввиду дерево.

    I googled 'vinagroon' and the results showed me one of the ugliest insects I wouldn't want to mess with.

    Holly crap that's an ugly sucker!

    Try Vinegaroon leather dye, slightly different results, and apparently my spelling sucks.

    For non-Russian speakers:
    Slim-123 asked me how the stain reacts to the oil
