Vinegar And Its Uses





I have started to put together some things that vinegar
can be used for(apart from putting it on your fish and chips)
There is no need to buy special cleaning liquids,just have a
a bottle of white vinegar in your cleaning cupboard.



AIR FRESHENER
A saucer of vinegar left in the corner of a room acts as an
air freshener, removing all odours such as cigarette smoke etc.


RUST REMOVER
Soak a corroded bolt etc. in a small container of
vinegar for several days and the rust will begin to dissolve.


LABEL REMOVER
Soak label/sticker with vinegar leave until saturated, then peel off.


SHOE CLEANER
Remove winter salt stains from shoes by wiping
with a cloth dampened in a vinegar solution (1 tablespoon
vinegar to a cupful of water).


WINDOW WASHER
Clean windows with a solution of 2 tablespoons of vinegar to
2 pints (1 litre) warm water. Wash from top to bottom on the inside
of windows and from side to side on the outside. This
way you will be able to tell on which side any smears are.


KETTLE CLEANER
Lime deposits in kettles can sometimes be removed by
filling with equal parts vinegar and water.
Bring to boil then leave to stand overnight.
Empty out vinegar solution, refill with clean water,
reboil. Empty out again and then use in the usual way.


STEAM IRON CLEANER
Mineral deposits may be removed from an old steam iron
by filling it with a solution of equal parts white vinegar
and water and letting it steam until dry. Rinse the
tank with clean water, refill it and shake water through
steam holes over an old piece of material.
Test on old cloth before ironing. It is not advisable to try
this on a new iron as the acidity of the vinegar may damage the iron.


STERILIZER
Put a cup full of white vinegar and top up with water in a spray bottle
use it on your work tops . It cleans and sterilizes and leaves a nice shine


HAND CLEANER
Remove cooking smells from hands by rinsing them with
vinegar and then wash thoroughly with soap and water.


LAUNDRY AID
Perspiration marks can be eliminated by soaking them with
vinegar before laundering in the usual way.
Collars and cuffs can be cleaned by rubbing a thick paste
of baking soda and vinegar onto the stains before washing in the usual way.


WASHING WALLS
Vinegar can remove harsh stains off of walls with ease.
It can remove nicotine stains if you have smokers
or pen and crayon from little ones. Use vinegar just to wipe down
your walls for normal washing it absorbs odours
and clean the walls without striping the paint.
Vinegar is a natural neutralizer so it will freshen
the air and leave your house smelling clean.


DISHWASHER
Use vinegar in your dishwasher to remove build-up from the
dishwashing detergent or use it as a rinse aid to leave your
dishes streak-free. Run a cup of vinegar through a full dishwashing
cycle once a month to clean and deodorize your dishwasher.
Also you can use it in the sink in hot water with washing up liquid
to remove soap build-up and water deposits from glassware.


FLOOR CLEANER
It is safe on your no wax vinyl, wood and tile floors.
It removes dirt and build-up while leaving the floor
looking clean and shiny. Add a cup of
vinegar to 1 gallon of water and mop up those dirty,
messy floors with ease. You can also use it in the spray mops for quick clean-ups.

BLOCKED SINK
If the water is not running away properly,its most
likely the pipe is blocked, put some bicarbonate of soda
down the plug hole,then tip cup full
of white vinegar you will see it frizz up, leave for 1 hour
then run fresh water , it should now be clear.


HAIR TREATMENT
Put a shine on dark, greasy hair by adding a couple
of tablespoons of vinegar to your last rinsing water.

Add 8 fl. oz (225 ml) cider vinegar to a bath of warm water and soak
for at least 15 minutes - this should relieve aching muscles or itching skin.

of a strain or sprain. If, however, the pain continues medical
advice should be sought in case a bone has been fractured.
