My new best friend, Mr. Distilled Vinegar

Today, as every Friday, is our family cleaning day. We all help do as much as we can to CLEAN our house. Thank you hubby for this gift, so our bathrooms are shiny clean right now but the rest of the house can use some major help.

Meet my best friend, Mr. Distilled Vinegar. Awesome and cheap and all natural. I found this site that gives you advice of his many use. Here are just a few-there are tons more...the link is at the bottom:

  • To shine chrome sink fixtures that have a lime buildup, use a paste made of 2 tablespoons salt and 1 teaspoon white distilled vinegar.

  • Make your own scouring cleanser by combining 1/4 cup baking soda with 1 tablespoon liquid detergent. Add just enough white distilled vinegar to give it a thick but creamy texture.

  • Clean counter tops and make them smell sweet again with a cloth soaked in undiluted white distilled vinegar.

  • Clean and deodorize a drain by pouring in 1 cup baking soda, then one cup hot white distilled vinegar. Let this sit for 5 minutes or so then run hot water down the drain.

  • Deodorize the garbage disposal by pouring in 1/2 cup baking soda and 1/2 cup hot white distilled vinegar. Let sit for 5 minutes then run hot water down the disposal.

  • Deodorize and clean the garbage disposal with white distilled vinegar ice cubes. Make them by freezing full-strength white distilled vinegar in an ice cube tray. Run several cubes down the disposal while flushing with cold water.

  • Clean the microwave by mixing 1/2 cup white distilled vinegar and 1/2 cup water in a microwave-safe bowl. Bring it to a rolling boil inside the microwave. Baked-on food will be loosened, and odors will disappear. Wipe clean.

  • Clean the shelves and walls of the refrigerator with a half-and-half solution of water and white distilled vinegar.

  • Cut the grime on the top of the refrigerator with a paper towel or cloth and full-strength white distilled vinegar.
    Avoid the bad smell when you heat up a newly cleaned oven by using a sponge soaked in diluted white distilled vinegar for the final rinse.

Happy Cleaning!

God bless, Mary
