Mine says 5%.  I assume this is weight percentage, but I don't know that for sure.

White vinegar here is sold in two varietes - 5% and 10%. Probably w/w although I assume it doesn't make any difference whether it is w/w, w/v or v/v - accuracy of the concentration given on the label is so small that it doesn't matter.

0.22% looks too small to me, 2.2% will not rise a brow.

Show you calculations.

Be careful-some concentrated vinegar that is sold can have >60% CH3COOH

Maybe you can't find it in Poland, but you can find them-on the shelf of a hipermarket- here in Austria.

See my attach-it says 78-80% (sorry for the picture quality)

Well, I am not discussing with the facts :)

But it is crazy.

Too dangerous for a normal kitchen IMHO.

Hmm... in America vineger is usually somewhere between 3% and 10%.  It would help to see how you got your answer of 0.22%.  

Some types are sold to more professional cooks with upwards of 30%, but nowhere near 60 or 80%.

Why did you lean a Euro by the bottle of vinegar?  at first I thought it was censorship or something, but it's nowhere near the brandname.

not simply be entertained by them."

Glacial acetic acid is pretty close to 100%, at least the stuff I've used before.
