I was checking out the Dawn dish soap website the other day when I noticed that they are coming out with a new soap that has Vinegar in it. It got me thinking: Pay to have Vinegar added to my dish soap? that’s crazy!
Vinegar is the ultimate frugal AND green cleaner. I have shared my love of it with you before. But today I wanted to share some of MY favorite uses for vinegar around the house:
- Drain deodorizer
- Coffee maker cleaner
- Window cleaner: mix with ammonia and water in spray bottle
- Bathroom cleaner: mix with dish soap and water in a spray bottle. What I like the best of using vinegar in the bathrooms is that it leaves no soapy residue.
- Carpet cleaner: This tip came from the professional carpet cleaner I hired to shampoo our carpet. For years we have been paying a lot of money buying commercial carpet cleaners for the times our dogs have accidents on the carpet. The cleaner said use a 50/50 mix of water and vinegar in a spray bottle and spray the spot with it. Sure enough that worked like a charm for us.
How do you use vinegar in your home?
