What is the cleaning mixture for vinegar and water?
By Les from Vancouver, Canada
Vineger is also proven to help dissolve Uric Acid (why it can be used in the washing machine to soften the water and your clothes). Fantastic on pet stains, or soiled laundry. Also you can set out a small bowl of vinager to freshen the air in your house, and it's great mixed with water on no wax floors and will help break up any build up from commercial cleaners. I also like to put some in my carpet cleaner with water for geneal weekly cleaning & freshening.
When they say undiluted vinegar, they mean straight from the bottle. Don't worry about the percentage. What comes from the bottle is strong enought.

Don't waste money on dangerous commercial mineral deposit removers for your tub, sinks & commode.
When you can be sure to leave your sink or tub unused for about eight hours, lay a facecloth or dish towel on the stained area. Soak the cloth with undiluted vinegar. Cover with a baggie or plastic wrap.
To treat the commode, remove all or as much of the water as possible from the bowl. Pour in enough vinegar to submerge the stained area. After about eight hours, uncover the previously stained areas & scrub gently with a plastic scrubber & dish soap. Just flush the toilet as you would normally.
The acidity of the vinegar neutralizes the alkaline minerals & allows them to be easily removed.
For stubborn rust deposits scour gently with "Barkeepers' Friend".
Love all Vinegar Tips and want to add mine. We had four children and was unable to buy expensive throw away diapers. We bought cloth diapers, washed them in detergent and rinse with 1 cup of vineagar, not one of our children had a diaper rash!
Hi, I usually use equal amounts of vinegar & water.
Depending on what I am going to be cleaning/sanitizing I use anything from a 50/50 mixture to a 1 cup to 1 gallon mixture.
Dab a little vinegar on chapped lips several times during the day. I know this sounds awful, but it works great. That is, if you don't need to kiss anyone right away.
Avoid getting on your teeth as it is not good for tooth enamel
