Putting vinegar on a wound is never pleasant, as the initial burn can be extremely painful, but in the treatment of actual burns on the body, vinegar may be one of the best tools to protect your health. Vinegar is not only a highly astringent substance, which will help the wound close faster, but it is also antiseptic in nature. The greatest danger of a bad burn is the high chance of the injury becoming infected. Vinegar’s antiseptic nature can help to prevent that and speed the healing process. To reduce the initial discomfort, dilute vinegar with some water before applying it to the site of the burn.
