Remove all the lettuce leaves and place them in a big bowl or salad spinner.
Pour 1 cup of vinegar in the bowl or spinner and fill the rest with water.
Gently mix the lettuce, water and vinegar around and let soak for a few minutes.

Spin dry if using a salad spinner. If not, transfer lettuce to a colander and shake off excess water.
Lay out and air dry the lettuce on a clean counter, dish towel or paper towels until completely dry.
Place the lettuce in a gallon plastic zip bag along with a paper towel.
squeeze all air out of the bag and refrigerate.
