  • i use white vinegar to eat away hard water stains- After using a humidifier theres all kinds of sedement at the bottom of the heater, its loosens it so you can just wipe it away. Also good for bath tub stains.

  • I always use about 2 cups of Apple Cider Vin into my bath water...Great for your skin!!! The smell disapates. When I shower I have a spray bottle with Vin and water and spray myself before I towel off. Go do some is very good for your skin.

  • Vinger in your jeans and most durty clothing gets rid of odor... straight vinger on the under arms of t-shirts or sweaty areas of clothing takes the smell out...

    Vinger and water solution and newspaper (as paper towel) great for clean glass/windows and counters...

    Vinger with slices of oranges or lemon down your garbage disposal takes the smell out ...

  • I use vinegar in the washing machine in a downy ball. Its a natural fabric softener and it cuts down on odors. I clean the floor with it as well as tables, counters, the mirror, toilets, windows. It also works in the garden as a weed killer. Just be careful not to get it on anything else because it will kill that too!

  • Vinegar is Great! You can use it for so much! Even Apple Cider vinegar is good for weight loss & even lowering your BP they claim! But if you can Drink it straight like they say ,you should lose weight & Lower your BP. I read that once in A Natural Cures Book! But who can tolerate that Taste*??
