Bathroom

You can clean your shower head with vinegar. We have an entire blog devoted to the five easy steps to clean your showerhead using vinegar.

Kitchen

Mix one cup of vinegar with enough water to fill an ice tray. Freeze the new cubes. Toss the cubes into the garbage disposal for a clean and odor free disposal.

Living Room

Put on an old sock and dip your hand into a mixture equal parts white vinegar and hot tap water and swipe across the window blind slats for a “white glove” clean surface.

Laundry Room

Unclog your steam iron by pouring equal parts white distilled vinegar and water into the iron’s water chamber. Turn the setting to steam and let sit upright for about 5 minutes. Unplug and allow to cool. Empty the chamber and loosened particles should flow out with the water.

Garden

Spray full-strength white, distilled vinegar directly on the top of weeds to get rid of the pesky garden intruders.

Patio

Combine equal parts water, white distilled water and liquid dish soap into a spray bottle and use as a bug spray.
