Eight Great Uses For Vinegar
It seems that people who buy a bottle of vinegar keep it around the house for ages. It’s used sparingly by some and then put back in the cupboard and might come out again sometime in the next 6 months.
There are some great ways to use vinegar. Plain ol’ white vinegar. Here are the top 8 ways to use that vinegar in your home.
Remove greasy residue from your stove, counter top and cabinets. The fan over the stove seems to be the culprit for oily residue. To clean and deodorize, use equal parts vinegar and water.
Wipe out mildew. Full strength vinegar will take care of mildew unlike some cleaners which make you run for fresh air.
Remove stickers and sticky spots. Just dab the sticky spot with a cloth dipped in vinegar. Use a 50/50 solution of vinegar and water for older, more fragile items.
Clean your scissors. Water eventually will cause them to rust. Wipe the blades with a cloth dipped in vinegar.
Deodorize the litter box. After cleaning out the offending matter, clean it with a swish of vinegar before putting in fresh litter.
Cleaning the dishwasher. I’ve done this one. I have hard water in the house and periodically I pour a cup of vinegar on the bottom and run it empty. It cleans out soap residue and deodorizes it while keeping it in peak operating condition.
Unclog the shower head. I’ve used vinegar to clean the shower head more than once due to hard water build up. If possible, unscrew the shower head and place into a basin filled with vinegar.
