Everyday things we usually have in our home do come in handy, more than you would have thought about, as you probably read reagarding Olive Oil!
Today, we’ll talk to you about vinegar’s uses around the house and for your own use.
- Use 1/2 teaspoon of vinegar in place of 1 teaspoon of lemon juice in your savory recipe to give it a different touch.
- Remove coffee or tea stains from the bottom of a cup by swishing 2 tablespoons of vinegar around in the cup. Clean as usual.
- Vinegar is a good degreaser for oily hair because it helps adjust pH levels. Shampoo your hair as usual, rinse, then pour 1/4 cup over it and rinse again. You’ll see great results!
- Dip a cloth into vinegar, then wipe away the salt residue stains off your boots.
- Make wool sweaters fluffier by dropping in a couple of capfuls of vinegar during the rinse cycle for an extra-soft feel.
- Make vinegar ice cubes and feed them down the garbage disposal. After grinding, run cold water through the drain. They will be completely deodorized.
- Once a month, clean your dishwasher. Empty the machine and run a cup of vinegar through an entire cycle to reduce soap buildup on the inner mechanisms and glassware.
- Removing stubborn price tags or stickers turned easy!. Paint them with several coats of vinegar, let the liquid soak in for five minutes, then wipe away the residue.
- Boil a mixture of water and vinegar in a teakettle, then wipe away the grime. Fill the reservoir of a coffeemaker with a mixture of vinegar and water and run it through a brewing cycle. Your teakettle or your coffeemaker will be good as new.
