8 Things to Start Using Vinegar For


My personal rule of thumb for products coming into my home is to use the least toxic product that will do the job well.  I also don't like to have a ton of different products that only accomplish one task when I could just have one big jug of vinegar.

So here are 8 things I like to use vinegar for in my home.

1) Mop the floors.  A big splash of vinegar in a bucket of mop water is enough to get the floors sparkling clean.  Although you can smell the vinegar while you are mopping, the smell quickly dissipates.  Sometimes I add a couple drops of essential oil to leave my floors smelling extra fresh.

2) Use it in place of Fabric Softener.  I've never really been one to use fabric softener. But I do like to add a splash of vinegar during the rinse cycle when I wash our towels so that they will come out softer and fluffier.

Oh, and as an added bonus?  It looks way prettier in my laundry room than a jug of fabric softener would!



3) Use it to clean tea stains out of teapots and mugs. Soak stained vessels in a sink filled with hot water, with a big splash of vinegar and some dish soap.  After a short soak, the stains normally come off with a quick wash.

4)Descale your kettle.  Put enough vinegar in kettle to cover the lime scale and mineral deposits. Sometimes I add water because I don't want to use up all of my precious vinegar.  (Yes, I'm cheap!)  Boil the vinegar in the kettle, and then rinse the kettle well. 

5)Use it to clean your dishwasher.  Last week I shared how to give your dishwasher a really good clean.  Click here to read those instructions.

6) Use it to clean your microwave.  Microwaving a bowl of vinegar will loosen the dirt and grime inside your microwave, making cleaning it much easier.  Click here to read my post about cleaning your microwave.

7) Clean the toilet.  Until recently, I used store bough toilet cleaners because I liked the fancy neck design that allowed me to apply the cleaner right below the rim.  And then one day, when I was out of toilet cleaner, it occurred to me that my trusty spray bottle of vinegar could get the vinegar right up under the rim too! I spray under the rim all around the toilet, let it sit for a few moments, and then give the toilet a quick scrub with the toilet brush. 



8) De-stinkify drains.  (de-stinkify is a word, right?) Sprinkle some baking soda down your drains and then follow it up with a cup or so of warm vinegar.  This is a great task to do immediately after cleaning your microwave or kettle because those tasks left you with a bunch of warm vinegar anyways!

Do you have a great use for vinegar that I didn't mention?  Please share it with us in the comments below!

    1. TA..you're not alone..My DH has many health issues and would you please tell me why men and boys can't hit that large white china hole? I only have 1 bathroom set for each bathroom and they get washed every single week. I detest smelling of urine as I walk by the bathroom that is used for any visitors or family visiting. I am going to try the vinegar in the spray bottle and keep it under the bathroom vanity to be accessible at all times. Do you add any essential oils to that spray bottle that you use to clean the toilet?

  4. use apple cider vinegar to rinse hair after washing, makes hair shiny and also works great as a treatment for dandruff/itchy dry scalp. White Vinegar works great to sooth a sunburn: take a vinegar bath, or just apply directly to skin with a vingegar soaked cloth.
    Vinegar applied to tough stains in carpet: soak with vinegar, apply a dry cloth to carpet, place an iron on cloth and it helps to pull the stain from carpet.

  6. I fill the tank of my carpet cleaner with half white vinegar and half hot water. It cleans the carpet really well and eliminates odors (really good if you have pets). I also keep a spray bottle of half and half on hand to lightly mist upholstery if your couch can't be cleaned any other way. You can lightly mist the air with it if you have a stinky room or smokers around.

  8. 1/4 cup vinegar, 1/4 cold water, and a tsp of detergent work extremely well on grease stains on clothes. My fiancé recently got machine grease on his white dress shirt and this removed it completely. You can also use vinegar to clean your coffee maker, instead of buying coffee maker cleaner.

  9. OMG that pic of your washer/dryer made me drool... so pretty and organized! Do you have a top or front loader? What do you wash your clothes with? I'm basically anti-dryer except for towels or when I'm in a rush {because I'm cheap cheap cheap} but I do use the dryer bar softener thing. I'm not real fussy on my laundry soap - I use the liquid stuff from the dollar store. And bleach.

I used about 1/2 c of white vinegar and filled the bathroom basin with hot water and put my feet in it for at least a half hour. It was relaxing and took it away. I did have to do it a second time but that was it! (Staying in the water helps to get it into the bloodstream and removes it from the outside-in!) Best wishes!

    1. Also works great for cleaning up puppy accidents :)...If they "go" inside the house, after picking up or soaking up the mess straight vinegar on the spot will neutralize the scent and deter them from going in the same place. I went through 2 jugs during puppy potty training, it works great (eventually lol). The pricey enzyme crapola you can purchase from the pet supply place isn't worth it - vinegar works great!

    2. I love dogs! And not so much for cats but I really don't like the idea of spraying them. Are you spraying the animal because you don't want to be bothered or is your animal trying to tell you something?? My daughters 2 dogs come to me because I feed/water them, treat them, let them out and play with them the most. They are small dogs so they are not walked even though that would be another thing that dogs really need. If you have done the above and walked your dog, you should not have a need to spray them since they will be tired. As for cats, they need some cat toys, a climber...one of the least expensive is a feather on a long stick~just wave it back and forth! They love it! They just don't want to be petted. In this respect, they are pretty much like kids.
      Dogs and cats that are bored will deliberately do things to get your attention (good/bad attention), just like kids!!

  25. I keep a spray bottle in my kitchen and one in the bath. The bottle is 1/2 water, 1/2 vinegar. We have quartz counter tops in our kitchen and I use this spray after each meal. I spray counter and then use a sponge with a bit of dishsoap to scrub the counter down. They sparkle as if they are brand new! I also pop the sponge in the dishwasher for the cycle each night. I use a dmapened cloth and vinegar spray for dusting, mirrors, windows, bathroom fixtures, the surfaces of washer and dryer--- I could go on and on. I will definitely try your tea kettle tip. I can't believe the money that I wasted on cleaners for years!

  29. I use vinegar to get rid of/ keep fleas away from my pets. We had a bad infestation from the dog park this year and the vinegar killed the fleas. We did have a lingering problem with the cat but I think that was because I had a hard time properly bathing the cat. They were gone on the dog though. We just mixed vinegar with regular shampoo (the shampoo was just for smell and to make it easier to apply) scrubbed and rubbed, let it sit while we combed for fleas (you can get 99 cent flea combs at petsmart) and then rinsed.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Vinegar won't keep fleas away though. If your pets have fleas, the home needs to be de-flead (i.e. carpets vacuumed, floors cleaned, pet beds or area where pets lay washed in hot water). Fleas have 4 life stage cycles and this will need to be done repeatedly to kill all the stages. Plus, in order to get good killing activity, you'll have to keep bathing your pets in vinegar. Dogs and cats are not designed to have bathes as often as us so their skin can get dried out really easily. There are a number of good products that are safe for your pets that will kill the flea in multiple life stages... talk to your vet about good flea control before bathing your pet continuously in vinegar.

      Delete
    2. Agree! I'm a vet, and pets' skin is alkaline, not acidic like ours, so vinegar is very drying to them. Besides, just the shampoo and water and flea combing would have killed the fleas as well as the vinegar! Soaping up a dog and letting it sit on them 5-10 min then combing out the dead or dying fleas does the trick. But once they are in the house, you will continue to have problems unless you use something to prevent the eggs from hatching. I'm all for fewer chemicals, but in this case the products which prevent reinfestation and egg hatching are very effective and in most cases, very safe.

  30. I have a greight all purpose stain remover that involves vineger
    it's 1 part vinager 1 part dish washing soap and one part amonia it cheans just about everything but be carefull not to use it with bleach it becomes toxic in contact. lather a little bit of the mixture untill it becomes very sudssy and apply a little bit on a carpet that has bene soiled (first test a corner to make shure that it doesent affect the rug) and with a spunge rubit on and wipe off with a clea towel and it brightens and cleans!

  33. I was raised in a very medical family where everything was scrubbed to sanitary with large quantities of bleach. When I was 21, I met the man who would go on to father my children and become the dreaded "ex". He used vinegar to clean. It drove me crazy like you wouldn't believe. I used to call my mother and vent for HOURS about the crazy man and his vinegar obsession. Now that I have children, I really don't like the bleach. It's so harsh and the fumes are horrible... so after considerable research into non-chemical alternatives, I've made the switch to vinegar as well. Maybe the crazy ex wasn't so crazy after all (just don't tell him I said that)...

  42. When cleaning grapes and strawberries, beans, peas in the pod, etc, I fill a large bowl with a splash of white vinegar, cold water and several ice cubes. When I remove the grapes from the stems, or the greens from the strawberries, I throw the fruit in the bowl. Swish the produce around, then drain and rinse. By looking at the water, you'll see how great it is at cleaning. The vinegar does a great job removing all the gross stuff that is sprayed on our produce, and the ice cold water really brings out the flavor of the fruit, and keeps it fresh longer.

  46. These tips are wonderful!! I use a bottle of vinegar and water to clean my countertops, kitchen sink and glass table tops. I, also, use some in my mop bucket, on the carpet as we work to house break our new puppy and in the laundry.

    I would like to warn you though - I started using vinegar because my children wanted to help me clean and this was so much safer than chemicals. We have a black marble hearth and my three year old was helping me clean and sprayed the marble. It ate the marble and our hearth is ruined. So, before using vinegar, please check the material prior.

  48. I use vinegar in my everyday cleaning business as well as at home. Half vinegar/Half water in a spray bottle works well for counters, toilets, windows/glass, but the best I have found to work is that if you spray vinegar directly onto grout, let sit 5 minutes, and scrub with a grout brush, then it turns your grout back to the original color. No more stains on counters/grout from coffee spills, bathroom floors around toilet areas starts to look like fresh grout! Happy Vinegaring!

    1. I burnt my hand on a pampered chef cooking stone. My oven mitt wasn't thick enough for the heat of the stone, and I have a high pain tolerance. I almost cried it hurt so bad with all the nerve endings we have in our hands. I ran my fingers under cool water immediately. It seemed to help, but the burning felt like my hand was cooking. It was aweful!! my skin wasn't broken, but I could see a blister was about to form on 3 fingers. I knew that vinegar helped sunburns, so thought it was worth a try. It all happened so fast and my daughter brought me a bowl of plain white vinegar and I soaked my hand in it. The relief was IMMEDIATE! I was truly amazed. Then I took my hand out of the bowl and the heat came again, so I soaked it for another couple minutes. I seriously think this kept me from having major damage and bad blisters on my hand. Now of course if it is really super bad with instant blisters and pealing, then you should see a doctor, but for me, this worked, and very fast. The crazy part is that I am a dental Hygienist, and I had an interview with a new office with in 5 days of getting burned. I was so worried that I would have scaring and an open wound and have to cancel and lose a potential job, but all was well, and I healed, and the best part...... I got the job. :)

She would even drink a cup of warm apple cider vinegar every night because she had high cholesterol and didn't want to take medicine.After a very minimal change in her diet and the vinegar regiment her LDL levels went drastically down. (I would consult physician before doing this). it also works great to get the sticky residue from labels and tape off. I spray it on let it sit for about 5 minutes and it comes right off. I also always have a spray bottle with 2 parts vinegar, one part lemon juice and one part liquid dish soap. It is the best all purpose cleaner I have ever used!

    I used vinegar and water when my daughter had high fever until the medication starts working takes about 20-30 min ...I would rub her back and feet with vinegar and water...helps to reduce fever faster...(I used apple cider vinegar few times and one day a friend gave me ,rose petal vinegar it smells very nice)
    My mother used on me when I was small ,I used to have febrile seizures if the fever was not reduced faster...works from experience

    My mother in law used to drink one glass of water mixed with one teaspoon of vinegar and one of honey every time she ate something high in fat and she felt full..I tried this too and you start to better right away after you burp few times...better than anti gas medications

    Thank you very much for your fantastic Article.

  65. A year ago for A Current Affair Australia I did a comparison of supermarket shelf carpet cleaning stain removers to see which one was the best. White vinegar was also use against the stain removers and white vinegar was the clear winner. We tested them it with a variety of stains like beetroot, curry and wine.
    Vinegar was the best all round stain remover and the cheapest.
    carpet cleaning stain removal need to be done soon rather than later.

  66. Vinegar works really well for sprains and sore muscles. Soak a rag and apply, its amazing. My grandfathers cure for everything and now with three boys that play football and race dirtbikes he was right.

  68. Nice tips. Sometimes I don't like to make up my own concoctions but I still want to be natural and organic. I use a product called Freshana Organic Solutions. Awesome stuff.

  69. Ummmm ... I've been using 1/2 cup vinegar to 1 liter of water and tea tree oil .. about 10 drops as an air freshener .. I'm thinking of using essential oils but I love the smell of tea tree oil.

  70. Gosh, I never realized how many uses white vinegar has in the home. You have enlighten my brain! The essential oils will probably cost more then the bottle of white vinegar but you don't use but a drop or two of the essential oils, so it should pay for itself in the long run I would think. Which essential oil fragrance do you use the most or is your favorite?
