Can I substitute rice wine vinegar for white?

white vinegar? I'm going to make coleslaw and the recipe calls for half of a tablespoon of white vinegar. I only have rice wine vinegar and don't want to buy a bottle of white vinegar when I need such a small amount.

No white vinegar for me

I've read and heard that one should never use distilled white vinegar in your cooking, salads, or baking. Save it it for cleaning purposes.

IMO, white vinegar is fine for cooking, as for me I use it for cleaning my coffee maker. I prefer white wine vinegar, white balsamic or rice wine vinegar over plain white vinegars.

I use apple cider vinegar in the slaw recipe I follow.
White is preferred for masking dog urine stains in carpetting though

I've never heard that. What was the reason for not using it in food?

This thread has been split to retain only those post which were on topic to the OP's question.

Those who want to discuss using White Vinegar for cleaning or for pet urine stains/odors ... you can find those post moved to the Miscellaneous Forum: White Vinegar for Pet Urine Stains/odors
