Some people have to use it on a regular basis to break up an obstruction and alternate with use of saline or water.

    diluted acetic acid
    What do you mean diluted? how much do you dilute it by like by what %? And also where do you keep this from?

    start with 25% acetic acid(vinegar) and the rest sterile water or tap water if not using sterile technique.

    Any certain type of vinegar? And is it sterile? Also what is the ratio? Most food-grade vinegars only have between 4 and 7% acetic acid?

    I have hardly ever needed to irrigate in 40 years and have never had any kind of stones until last year I had to have some bladder stones laser removed. I've told Dr I have never had bladder stones before and he said I'm getting older. Go figure a great medical diagnosis
