I admit it doesn’t smell the greatest but it does fade. It also neutralizes other worse odors from such things as such as urine and smoke.
Ways to Use Vinegar for Cleaning
- Just a few spoonfuls in the dishwasher or sink help cut the grease on dishes.
- Vinegar will successfully clean out a coffee percolator. Just put it through a cycle the same as making a pot of coffee. Make sure you rinse through one more time with water or the next pot of coffee will taste like vinegar.
- If you mix half vinegar and half water in a spray bottle, you have a powerful cleaner for the kitchen and the bathroom.
- It cuts through hard water deposits and stains. For stubborn stains and mildew, use vinegar straight and let it sit for a while before wiping off.
- Put a quarter cup of vinegar and one cup of water in the microwave, heat it up for a couple minutes and then wipe down.
Vinegar is a safer greener cleaning option. Bleach or Ammonia is harmful to our lungs and when it gets into our water, it does some serious damage to the environment. Chemicals in commercial cleaners cost more money and damages our health and eco-systems.
I don’t like the way bleach fades everything out either. Vinegar makes almost everything shiny including floors and mirrors.
