Do You Vinegar? Some Handy Tips That Save Money and the Environment!

Well, this is a handy post to hang on to in the blogging universe. This is a perfect reblog because you can find all the cool uses for vinegar whenever you need them. Who would have thought there were this many neat ideas! 

White distilled vinegar is effective for killing most mold, bacteria, and germs, due to its level of acidity.  Did you know that?

 

And, it is still environmentally-friendly!

 

Here are just a few uses for this wonderful alternative to harsh chemicals that scare me.  And, vinegar won’t send you to the hospital from the fumes!

 

To shine chrome sink fixtures that have a lime buildup, use a paste made of 2 tablespoons salt and 1 teaspoon white distilled vinegar.


Make your own scouring cleanser by combining 1/4 cup baking soda with 1 tablespoon liquid detergent. Add just enough white distilled vinegar to give it a thick but creamy texture.    

Clean counter tops and make them smell sweet again with a cloth soaked in undiluted white distilled vinegar.

Clean and deodorize a drain by pouring in 1 cup baking soda, then one cup hot white distilled vinegar. Let this sit for 5 minutes or so, then run hot water down the drain.


Clean the microwave by mixing 1/2 cup white distilled vinegar and 1/2 cup water in a microwave-safe bowl. Bring it to a rolling boil inside the microwave. Baked-on food will be loosened, and odors will disappear. Wipe clean.

Clean the shelves and walls of the refrigerator with a half-and-half solution of water and white distilled vinegar.                   

Cut the grime on the top of the refrigerator with a paper towel or cloth and full-strength white distilled vinegar.  

Avoid the bad smell when you heat up a newly cleaned oven by using a sponge soaked in diluted white distilled vinegar for the final rinse.


To clean a grease splattered oven door window, saturate it with full-strength white distilled vinegar. Keep the door open for 10 to 15 minutes before wiping with a sponge.
