We’re always looking for new and easy ways to clean our appliances and our homes. Why go out and buy all of these cleaners when a simple household product like vinegar can be used?! Here’s some ways that vinegar can be used to make our household items and appliances better.
In the bathroom, you can use vinegar to remove corrosion or chemical buildup from your shower-heads. You can remove stains from the toilet bowl and remove soap build-up from faucets. Vinegar can also be sprayed on the shower curtain or shower walls to help prevent mildew.
Spraying vinegar on your stainless steel appliances can give a shine to your appliances naturally and in an inexpensive way. Combining vinegar with baking soda, salt and boiling water can remove tarnish and make your silver look fresh and shiny as well.
If you run an empty cycle with a cup or two of vinegar in the bottom of the dishwasher, you can remove hard water deposits and odors. Vinegar also makes a great rinse aid and leaves dishes looking sparkling and spotless, while also cleaning them.
To clean your microwave oven, put a microwave-safe bowl of 1/2 cup of vinegar and 1 cup water in the oven and cook long enough to boil. This will remove lingering odors as well as loosen any baked food on the microwave’s walls.
To remove soap residue from the washing machine, run an empty cycle with one cup of vinegar to the machine. Vinegar is also a great way to brighten the colors in your load and keep colors from running into one another. Adding 1/2 cup of vinegar to the rinse cycle can also decrease lint on clothing, keeping your clothes fresher and better looking.
Even cleaning your counters, cutting boards, hands etc. with vinegar can get rid of stains and odors that you might have thought was impossible before. Cleaning all of your appliances with vinegar is a great tactic. It is also so easy and affordable and can be found at any drug store/ grocery store.
