  • Its a cleaning agent, can be used with towels as a deodorant instead of fabric softener, helps kill mildew and mold growing in the machine, etc.

  • Vinegar is like an all purpose cleaner. It works wonders on everything. I'd assume people put it in to get rid of any smells. I don't personally do that, but I use it in my coffee machine to help clean it out.

  • I use 1/2 cup in my rinse cycle. It help remove detergent residue. Vinegar is an acid and a natural degreaser. I use it to clean my house, rinse my clothes and kill weeds in the driveway.
