Household uses for good old White Vinegar

Did you know that normal white vinegar can be used as an effective weedkiller? The acid in the vinegar acts as a herbicide, and if you heat up the vinegar it makes it super strong!

Yes, the humble white vinegar is seriously the most versatile liquid ever and vinegar has been used by civilisations all over the world.

Heres some of its marvellous uses :

– Clean brass and copper by making a solution that uses equal parts of lemon juice and white vinegar. Apply the mixture with a soft cloth, leave it for a few minutes and then wipe clean with a lint free cloth.
– When you rinse lettuce, cabbage and other leafy veges, add one tabsp of white vinegar to the water. Insects and grubs just float to the surface!
– White vinegar is a great stain remover in the laundry.
– Use white vinegar instead of harsh cleaners in the kitchen in your ‘Spray and Wipe’ bottle. Its very effective for wiping down stove tops too, and so much better for your health than commercial chemical laden cleaners.
-Pour a bit of white vinegar into the drain hole in the kitchen, laundry, bathroom, etc, to keep drains smelling nice (well, as far as drains smelling ‘nice’ go!).
-Add a couple of splashes of white vinegar to the final rinse of towels and sheets – its a great antibacterial.
-Use white vinegar to clean windows, as long as you use a super clean cotton cloth, the results will be sparkling!
….and use for carpet cleaning as its colourless and a great deodorant.

Added bonus is that it is super de dooper cheap (available at your Supermarket), biodegradable and there are no nasty side effects. Gotta love that!
