Cleaning With Vinegar

Cleaning is not the most fun thing to do, especially in the bathroom.  But, at the end of the day it still has to get done.

Allow me to help you clean your place up a little with a simple eco-friendly, budget-friendly solution – white vinegar.

Vinegar is a natural organic bi-product of fruits, vegetables and grains.  That makes it a safe and natural cleaning product.  It doesn’t contain any harmful toxic chemicals and takes a life time to go bad.  Vinegar’s acidic properties make it a great household cleaner.  Vinegar has been used for generations as a stain remover, chrome polisher, soap scum remover, mildew eliminator, fabric softener, and an unclogging agent.  It was even been used to deodorized large areas.

Turning household products into household cleaners is as easy as 1, 2, 3.

1.  A solution of ½ dish soap, ½ vinegar in a spray bottle makes a quick and easy bath tub or toilet bowl cleaner. Spray it on, leave it for an hour, and then wipe it clean. As opposed to: Clorox, Kaboom, or Comet.

2.  Pouring ½ cup of baking soda and ½ cup of white vinegar followed by boiling water makes a “green” drain cleaner. As opposed to: Draino, Mr. Plumr, or BioClean.

3.  Mixing together 3 cups of olive oil and 1 cup of white vinegar makes a safe furniture polish/cleaner. As opposed to: Swiffer Dust and Shine, Pledge, or Old English.

4.  Baking soda and vinegar- sprinkle baking soda on the toilet bowl, sink, or shower floor then add vinegar and scrub before rinsing. As opposed to: Scrubbing bubbles, Lysol, or 7th Generation.

Still not convinced?

A 4-liter bottle of white vinegar costs between $1.50 and $2.50 and works just as well, if not better than other cleaners.  Since most of us already have vinegar in our homes, it is also a more convenient choice.  You can make cleaning with vinegar easier by keeping it in a spray bottle.

Vinegar is an all-in-one household cleaner that safely and economically cleans and deodorizes every room in the house.
