Cleaning fruit - fill sink with water, add 1 C. vinegar, mix.  Add all fruit and soak for 10 minutes.  Water will be dirty and fruit will sparkle with no wax or dirty film. Great for Berries too--keeps them from molding.  I do this with strawberries and they last for weeks!

Keep wasps and bees away this summer. Put about 10 cloves in 1/2 a lemon and set out. They do not like the scent. For Outdoor gatherings.

Those packages of pre-sliced apples you can buy at store are great for a healthy snack on the go but the price can add up. Make your own by slicing apples, soak in cold water for 3-5 minutes, then soak in a lemon-lime carbonated soda (such as 7-up or sprite) for 3-5 minutes. Divide into snack size portions and store in Ziploc bags in the fridge. The lemon-lime soda will keep the apples from browning and make them last. Will have to try

When buying fruit and veggies, always soak them in a 1:4 ratio of vinegar and water to help remove toxins and pesticides. Leave them soaking for up to an hour, longer with nonorganic apples. At the end of the bath, sometimes you can even see cloudy like stuff in the water from the skins and waxes, and dirt on the bottom.  Works awesome! Once I did this to blackberries and they were good for 3 WEEKS!  Thats unheard of with berries  water.  The vinegar is KEY :)

soaking apple slices in ginger ale for 10 minutes (I also hear any lemon-lime soda will also work). Still tastes like apples. pack in lunches or for on the go snacks.
