VINEGAR TO CLEAN YOUR HOUSE 5% solution of vinegar that is commonly sold in every supermarket kills 99% of bacteria, 82% of mold, and 80% of germs (viruses). Why did I not know this sooner?! Probably because vinegar is sold primarily for food preparation and vinegar companies do not advertise the other uses. With the help of the internet, I found recipes for cleaning the whole apartment. For some areas, particularly in the bathroom, I added baking soda to the mix. Here are my vinegar cleaning recipes. Equal parts distilled white vinegar and water (in a spray bottle, labeled) : use on kitchen counters, sink, windows, walls, mirrors, small appliances, ceramic tile. Vinegar (not diluted) : for tougher grease build up on stove top, toilet 1 cup vinegar and 2 tablespoons baking soda: to unclog drains. Pour baking soda first, then vinegar, let sit for 30 minutes, then flush with cold water. Baking soda sprinkled on a sponge: for more abrasive cleaning in bathtub. Scrub, then let it sit for 5 minutes and wipe clean. I feel good about this switch for a few reasons. First, the odor of vinegar diminishes much faster than bleach. Second, vinegar is a completely biodegradable product so it is safe for the environment. Third, vinegar is way cheaper than all the bottles of cleaning supplies under my kitchen sink. Also, I am buying less of the non recyclable plastic spray nozzles. So I found another way to save the planet and money at the same time. Yay!
