Cleaning with Vinegar

The cabinet underneath your kitchen sink is probably full of all kinds of cleaners that each have a specific purpose- glass, wood, carpet, bathrooms… but I like to use vinegar as a fix-all because it's a safe, inexpensive, all-natural household cleaner.

There's loads you can do with vinegar when it comes to cleaning up your house, and it evaporates quickly so you don't have to worry about your "clean" furniture smelling like vinegar.

Vinegar Uses

Vinegar cleans glass beautifully. I use it for my coffee press when it starts to build a film. All you need is an old rag and some vinegar to clean windows, tabletops, kitchen appliances, etc. It works wonders on gunky buildup.

My scissors tend to get a little sticky with all the different projects I use them for, but pure vinegar eliminates that problem immediately.

If we're talking germs, think about that computer that you use every day. You can wipe off your keyboard and computer screen with vinegar and not only will it clean things up, it will also reduce dust and static.

As for that constant chore of cleaning blinds is a bit easier if you just get an old sock, dip it in vinegar and just methodically wipe your hands across each of the blinds blades.

And believe it or not, it's a great cough syrup component! Mix 1 part vinegar with 1 part local honey and take a shot of that a couple of times a day and you'll clear your throat right up. After all, its all-natural, so why not try it?
