i read somewhere with vinegar and salt... but it seems unlikley and if its true.. iodized salt or un iodized slats?
No, that will not make HCl
Here are a few threads where this has been talked about before:
You may also want to try searching Woelen's site - lots of stuff there (Found here).

As long as it didn't matter if it is rather impure that would get you some.

"Special" Relativity, stupid ideas seem smarter when they come at you really fast.

1. The electrolysis itself is not trivial. You will need an adjustable 0-5V DC supply to get the right bias voltage.
2. The collection of the gases will be difficult. Hydrogen is a dangerous gas...it blows the hell up if activated in the presence of air. If you have any hydrogen floating around when you throw a switch (for instance, the one on your power supply), you are essentially setting off a bomb.
3. Chlorine is heavier than air (you will have to collect it over water, but it is partially soluble in water - coincidentally, making a very weak solution of HCl)), and poisonous. You do not want to risk ihnhaling it. If some leaks out of your collection system, it doesn't float away very fast.
4. Chlorine doesn't just "react" with hydrogen, it explodes. Like many other photochemical chain reactions, it is very tricky to control the rate of reaction.

maybe adding H2SO4 to BaCl2 would produce HCl and solid BaSO4 as a precipitate, which could then be removed?
But BaCl2 is hard to come by.... perhaps adding NaCl to BaCO3 (from rat poison) would produce the BaCl2?
I'm quite new to this, so my apologies if this is awful chemistry. But would someone please tell me if there are any problems with this/if it is plausible?
