Vinegar, More Uses

Aside from saving your moldy clothes, there are many great household uses for vinegar.  It's cheap, easy to find, and environmentally friendly.

Glass cleaner- A little vinegar helps get mineral buildup off of glass.

Dishes- In relation to the previous idea, a little vinegar added to your dishsoap helps get your dishes squeaky clean.  Your glassware should look nice again.

Hair- A solution of water and vinegar makes an excellent final rinse for your hair, especially if you have bad water (seeing a pattern here?).  The scent should leave your hair once it's dry.  If it doesn't, more water, less vinegar.  You should have shiny, beautiful hair once it's dry.

Wood cleaner- A solution of water and vinegar makes a great cleaner and shiner for your wood floor or furniture.  Do not use too much liquid on wood, ever.  Just wipe your sufaces with a damp cloth.

Mildew remover- That same solution is good for removing mildew from bathrooms and windows.

Awesome Tip of the Day:  As I'm sure you have gathered, vinegar is good for all kinds of things related to mold/mildew or hard water buildup.  Keep your eyes open for any other household chores for your new favorite solution.

  1. Vinegar also works great on bee and wasp stings to reduce pain and swelling. Just a dab, though.
