Want an easy way to clean your home without harsh chemicals? You’ll be amazed all the things one jug of vinegar can do. Plus it’s all natural, non-toxic, and cheap.
You can use it instead of more costly and chemical-based glass cleaners. Fill a spray bottle with one part water and one part vinegar and you got a cleaners that’s just as effective on windows and mirrors.
Use that same half and half mixture in the bathroom to effectively clean sinks, countertops, tubs and floors.
In the kitchen, spray it on the sink, stove tops and appliances, to get them all sparkling.
An important word of caution, though. Don’t use vinegar on marble because it can damage it.
Or, add a cup when you run your dishwasher to give it a deep clean.
Another good use for vinegar is in the microwave. We all know it can get pretty nasty inside. Get rid of the smell and grime by combining 1/2 cup of vinegar and 1 cup of water in a microwave safe bowl. Heat it until it is boiling. That will make it easy to wipe away any baked on food.
Vinegar can also work wonders on your hardwood floors. Just mix one cup white vinegar for every gallon of water.
And vinegar is also an inexpensive alternative to fabric softener. Add a quarter cup to the rinse cycle and it will make you clothes softer because it dissolves soap residue.
Do Your Part to use green cleaners in your home. You’ll keep those dangerous chemicals away from your family and out of the environment.
