Who Knew There Were So Many Uses for Vinegar

There are so many uses for vinegar so in this post I’m sharing with you the many ways I use in it my home.

You’re going to want to make sure you always have white vinegar on hand for all of these amazing uses.

  • Get rid of sticky stuff – Price tags and other stickers can be hard to remove from purchases. Pull off the sticker, dab the residue with white vinegar, then wipe the residue right off.
  • Unclog a drain – Pour half a cup of baking soda in the drain, then follow it with a mixture of one cup white vinegar and one cup of hot water. Plug the drain with a cloth rag  for about 10 minutes to let the bubbles work. Finish by pouring boiling hot water down the drain.
  • Fluff towels – Wash towels with 1/2 cup of white vinegar added to the fabric softener dispenser. It removes detergent build up and makes the towels soft and fluffy.
  • Clean stainless steel – Spray appliances with white vinegar and quickly buff with a soft cloth.
  • Clean the dishwasher – Reduce soap build up by pouring a cup of white vinegar into the empty dishwasher once a month and letting it run a full cycle.
  • Remove mineral deposits from shower head – Soak shower head in a plastic bag full of 1 part white vinegar to 1 part water. Secure it with a rubber band and let it sit over night.
  • Boil eggs – Add 2 tablespoons of white vinegar to one quart of water to keep eggs from cracking when boiled.
  • Remove ball point marks – Wet a clean white rag with white vinegar. Clean the spot using a circular motion, repeat until gone.
  • Prevent strong smells in the kitchen – Place a small bowl of vinegar next to the stove to absorb strong odors while cooking.
  • Get rid of mildew smells on clothes – Rewash clothing with 1/2 cup of vinegar. You can also add a few drops of essential oils if you like.
  • Loosen a rusted screw – pour vinegar onto the screw and it will unstick easily.
  • Help your manicure – Wipe your clean nails with a cotton ball saturated in white vinegar before you apply nail polish. It helps the color adhere better and helps prevent chipping.
  • Stop the itch – Soak a cotton ball in vinegar and dab on insect bites. It also works on sunburn.
  • Brighten your hair – Rinse a tablespoon of vinegar through your hair once a month to remove hair product build up.
  • Restore handbags and shoes – Use a soft cloth to wipe white vinegar on scuffed leather bags and shoes. Buff with a soft cloth to restore shine and hide marks.
