With my Sun burn post, a lot of people started asking what else vinegar is good for. So here goes, I use it for cleaning. It is also used for sunburns, athletes feet, dandruff, acne, itching, help quit smoking, blood pressure, cancer, stop bloody noses. Digestion issues, yeast infections , diapers rash, but water down for the last two. Anything you can add to this list. I forgot headaches.

I use it to clean coffee maker, dishwasher, washing machine. I use 1/2 cup with my whites to keep them super white. I put it in with my towles to break down the dryer sheet build up. I sue it on my Pergo floors ~~ no streaks and isnt not slippery after. I use in the first time I wash dark colored clothing. I prevents them from bleeding and stops them from fading.

Have heard of so many uses for vinegar, but I can not tolerate the smell myself. Darn.

Homemade Weed Killer Here is what you will need: 1 gallon of white vinegar 1/2 cup salt Liquid dish soap (any brand) Empty spray bottle Put salt in the empty spray bottle and fill it the rest of the way up with white vinegar. Add a squirt of liquid dish soap. This solution works best if you use it on a hot day. Spray it on the weeds in the morning, and as it heats up it will do its work.

cleaning brushes in a bucket of vinegar
    Soak gunked-up nylon brushes in hot vinegar for up to 30 minutes to remove paint and soften the bristles. Afterward, wash them in hot, soapy water, brushing off paint as needed, then rinse and let dry—good as new.

spraying vinegar on the wall

  • Using a sponge or spray bottle, saturate wallpaper with a solution of equal parts vinegar and water. Let stand for several minutes, then start scraping. The paper should come off easily.

dipping a shower head into a plastic bag filled with vinegar

  • Pour ½ cup of warm vinegar into a resealable plastic bag. Drop in the showerhead, making sure the holes are submerged, and seal the bag. Let sit for 1 hour. Rinse and wipe clean, then reattach.

cleaning sticker off a hard surface

  • Dab vinegar onto stubborn price tags and stickers affixed to glass, plastic, or wood. Scrape the surface clean, then rub the area with more vinegar to remove any sticky residue.
