Nearly every home in the world has at least a little jar of vinegar. Even if you don’t normally cook with it, you may just have a bit stuck in the cabinet for some reason. Well, here’s your reason. Vinegar is a great cleaner and deodorizer. If you have a bit of vinegar, even half a jar, there are so many things that you can do with it!
White Vinegar: Drains: Pour 1/2c baking soda in drain, followed by 1/2c V; Mildew on shower curtains: Put curtain in washing machine with light-colored towels; add 1c V to detergent and wash. Toilet hard-water: Shut off tank water, flush. Spray on rings, sprinkle in borax and scrub with drywall sandpaper. Shower head deposits: Pour V into plastic bag, tape to shower head overnight.
Clean your produce!!! If you don’t want to rinse fruits and veggies in plain water, you can simply wash them with one part vinegar and three parts water. Add a little lemon juice and a touch of baking soda to the mix to get non-organic veggies really clean. Just be sure to rinse well with plain water before eating.
