The Many Uses For Vinegar You May Not Know About

ID-100346732Vinegar is great for making salad dressings and putting on French Fries instead of Ketchup but there are many more uses for Vinegar then you may think. It is also an all purpose cleaner that can replace many other cleaners and save you money.

Pet odors and stains can be easily remedied using vinegar. With 1-1/2 cups of warm water and 1/2 cup of vinegar (which  naturally rids bacteria and neutralizes odors) you can neutralize the odor and lift the stain. Pour the enough solution to cover the stain, let sit for about 6 minutes and soak it up with a paper towel. Or you could take 2 TBS of white distilled vinegar and 1/4 cup of baking soda, rub into the stain, let dry overnight and vacuum it up.

Give your dishwasher a good cleaning. Pour 1 cup of vinegar into the bottom of the dishwasher and run on a full cycle. The vinegar will help remove any food particles.

Make plastic containers new again! It happens to all of us. You make something like Salsa put it in a plastic container and you can never get the smell out no matter how many time you wash it.  Solution: Take a paper towel and dampen it with a bit of vinegar. Wipe out the container and wash it one more time.

Get a germ free bathroom with Vinegar. Remember the pet odors and how vinegar naturally removes bacteria, well the same with cleaning your sink and tub. Fill a clean spray bottle with vinegar and spray undiluted around the tub and sink. Wipe clean and rinse.

Get rid of Lime buildup on your sink fixtures by making a paste of 1 teaspoon vinegar and 2 TBS salt. Rub this paste on your faucets and wipe down with a cloth.

Make your refrigerator clean and shiny inside with a solution of vinegar and water half to half. Dip cloth into solution, wring out and wipe down the shelves and inside.

Boiled Eggs benefit from just a Tablespoon of vinegar by stopping egg whites from coming out of a cracked egg and even better make them easy to peel.

Want fluffy Rice every time? Just ad 1 TBS of vinegar to the boiling water. The vinegar will help remove excess starch that can make rice clump up and a bonus is that you can’t taste the vinegar.
