Ways to Make Good Use of Vinegar Around Your Home

Ways to Make Good Use of Vinegar Around Your Home

When it comes down to keeping your home clean and safe, you are more likely to get shocked at the prices of cleaning agents in your local stores. They have so many chemical mixtures and concoctions that really are harmful for you, your kids, your pets or all three at once. Not to mention the effect you will be having on the environment if you decide to go with a lot of those expensive harsh chemicals in your home. After a lot of research, we have found that you are able to achieve remedies to most of your home cleaning, odor removing and other things just by making use of vinegar. Yes, we said vinegar. Take a look at some of the things we have found are actually very useful when it comes to using vinegar around the house.

Cleaning Hardwood Flooring

If you take half a cup of white vinegar and a gallon of lukewarm water you can use that to clean your wood flooring. Take care not to get your wood too soaking wet because that could cause issues. Also, this can remove wax from flooring for when you are planning to redo your waxing on your floor.

Cleaning Kitchen and Bathroom Surfaces

Using a half cup of distilled vinegar for every cup of water will take care of these tasks. You would think the smell may linger too long, but it actually doesn’t stay around too long. However, if you want the smell, you could always just add more vinegar to the mix. This isn’t recommended for use on marble or other stone types of countertops.

Cleaning Glassware and Ceramics

Using a cloth soaked with vinegar and rinsing them with water is a great way to restore those items back to their original shine.

Removing Bathtub Rings and Shower Grime

To do this, just use pure vinegar along with a scrub brush. Once done, just rinse with water and you will notice all of your rings and grime are taken away very easily.

Drainage Cleaner

Instead of paying so much for a harsh drain cleaner that may or may not work, use this solution. Mix baking soda within your drain by first pouring one cup of baking soda down the drain. After having boiled some vinegar, pour one cup of the hot vinegar down after the baking soda. Leave it for half an hour and then flush the mixture with boiling hot water.

Are you as surprised as we are about some of these solutions? Well, just so you know, there are plenty more solutions like these you can use around your home. You can even control the ant population in and around your home by pouring vinegar in the places you see ants trailing and their beds. If you are worried about having a vinegar smell in your home, not only will the smell leave quickly, but you wont’ have to worry about breathing in other harmful chemicals as well.
