I was in a course that had a small blerb about something that has been rattiling around in my head ever since. One of the topics was insulation and the presentor bought in some small samples. One of which was a do-it-yourself insulation made from lime and vinegar used many years ago. It was hard and foam looking. Several weeks after without knowing the quantities or additional ingredits I tried to mix vineger and hyrated lime with a soupy mess as the result. Lime being a base of course acted with the vineger just like baking soda and vineger. The foam soon disipaded and the slop never hardend.
Does anyone know any additional information surrounding this type of insulation?
