Vinegar is one of the most versatile cleaning agents available. It’s a natural antibacterial agent and its acidic properties make it one of the best agents to use. Here are some examples of what you can clean with vinegar.
In the kitchen:
·         Coffemaker: Run the machine with equal parts water and vinegar. Halfway through the cycle, turn it off and let it sit for an hour. Then complete the cycle.
·         Microwave: Put one cup vinegar and one cup water in a bowl and microwave on high for about 10 minutes. Afterward, stains and dried food should be easy to wipe away.
·         Glassware: Put one cup of vinegar in the bottom of your dishwasher before you run the cycle. After you run the dishwasher, your glassware shouldn’t be cloudy.
In the bathroom:
·         Hard water deposits from a showerhead: Put vinegar in a plastic bag and tie the bag around the showerhead. Let the bag sit overnight, and rinse the showerhead with water in the morning.
·         Shower: Spray vinegar on shower walls and curtains to prevent mildew.
Throughout the home:
·         Glass: Mix one tablespoon of vinegar in a quart of water. Spray onto glass surfaces and wipe dry.
·         Mold: Spray vinegar on mold, let sit for 15 minutes, rinse and let dry.
·         Carpet spills: After removing as much liquid as you can, spray the stain with a solution of half vinegar and half water and let sit for two minutes. Blot with a towel.
