  • I mix it with a little water. Or use straight vinegar and then go back and wipe it down again with pure water.

  • I'd wipe it down with straight vinegar and follow up with a little spritz of lemon water to kill the vinegary smell.

  • Straight vinegar. The vinegar smell will evaporate within an hour, and it kills most bacteria and mold/mildew.

  • Vinegar and water makes a good disenfectant,if you have a smelly car you can soak a paper towel in it and leave it in the car with the windows up for a little while and it will take the odor out.
