There is a really good book, "Vinegar", by Vickie Lansky that is good, I got it from amazon & it was cheap! If you use it on your scalp or for your hair, use white vinegar. A mix of 10% is good. Apple cider leaves a little residue, cause it comes from apples. Not a big deal, but I can feel it on my skin, so I use the white for anything on my skin. It's great for itchy skin or rashes.
Thank you, thank you, I am amazed that vinegar can be used for so much and so cost effective.
White vinegar in a spray bottle with water is great for cleaning faucets & glass. It kills germs so it is good for counters & sinks too.
A small bowl or dish of white vinegar set out in a room is an amazing odor absorber for smoke, etc.
White vinegar & water is the only thing that gets my laminate floors clean and shiny. it is also good for wood floors.
Add a little vinegar to washing machine to rid clothing of odors, plus it acts as a fabric softener.
Keep in mind the smell of vinegar evaporates and doesn't stay in the clothes or the air.
Apple cider vinegar is great for the scalp.
Raw, organic apple cider vinegar helps in weight loss when you take a couple spoonfuls before meals.
Vinegar works great on windows. It is also a natural disinfectant, it kills germs!
I use it in the dishwasher instead of the expensive JetDry...works really well and is a natural disinfectant also.
Website full of Vinegar Hints. Hope this helps you.
I saw this tip on the Rachael Ray show.... freeze plain white vinegar in ice cube trays. Then when they're frozen, put 3 or 4 in the garbage disposal and run it to clean it out and get rid of any odors.
I'm beginning to think there is nothing you can't use vinegar for. I've been using it in my laundry for a while now. It makes a great detergent booster, good on getting those sweat rings out plus it works great as a final rinse if you don't like using fabric softners. You can also use it on the final rinse of your hair for a little extra shine!
well i take vinegar if i am ever sick. i use the pills mostly then because of the taste.
but i pour vinegar down my drains when they are slow. i have put it in dishwasher when dishes are really dirty or greasy. i spray it on the carpet after dog pees on carpet. i soak dishes in it when hard water crust is built up.
