TOP TEN USES FOR VINEGAR IN YOUR HOME:

  • Carpet Stain Remover: 1tsp of detergent + 1tsp of vinegar (white) mixed with a pint of lukewarm water. Apply with a small soft brush or a clean towel and rub gently, rinse the cloth and ‘rinse’ the area by dabbing the clean water cloth on the spot and then dry the area with a fan or hair dryer-Repeat if necessary, this will not work on oily stains.
  • Cleaner Dishes and Glasses: pour a cup and a half to two cups in the bottom of the dishwasher, use your regular dishwasher soap and run a full wash cycle
  • Kill Grass: to kill grass on sidewalks and driveways pour full strength vinegar on it
  • Keep Flowers Longer: add 2Tbs sugar and 2Tbs white vinegar in a 1-quart vase of water
