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.
