OK, it sounds weird but my wife wants to try it on my raw sensitive areas to see if it can reverse it to smooth skin.
I'm leery of anything that might burn or further irritate my skin.
Anyone heard to spraying that on sensitive skin with any results?

I guess I don't know why it would do anything? It's certainly acidic and it's going to hurt, probably a lot. And as for reversing it...well..this is something that is built into your genetic code. A topical anything isn't going to change that so I don't see your skin suddenly becoming smooth.
I'm not raining on your parade, by all means use it and tell us what happens but I wouldn't expect anything too exciting.

It's acetic acid, one of the most mild acids available, and to my knowledge does not absorb into the skin and mess up things the way salicylic can.

That said, it's mild because it's mild...I don't see it doing a whole lot. It might loosen some scale, and it's worth a try as a fairly safe option, but it will most definitely not result in completely smooth skin. Like anything we try, the minute you stop using it, your skin reverts to its natural state.

Thanks, guys for the response.
But I meant to say my wife wanted to try it not clear up my skin, but to help as a disinfectant fighting the bacteria which grows so easily on our warm bodies.
I am leery using the cider part but I can try just using the white vinegar part.
I'll let you know.

It's the same stuff, really. apple cider vinegar is just fermented from apples. White vinegar comes from grape juice. Neither is better than the other.
