Before using vinegar as a cleaning agent I always bought the small bottles. Then after going through THAT small bottle I realized you can buy two whole gallons for under $3 at Sams! Thats way cheaper than all the expensive chemical cleaners I was using!  

So here's some uses for vinegar your may or may not have been aware of!

Remove mineral deposits from your coffeemaker: Brew one part DWV to two part water in coffee pot. Discard, brew with just water twice before making coffee. Recommend that you consult your coffeemaker owners manual.
