Vinegar For Household Cleaning

There are several ways to use vinegar for household cleaning if you want a natural, fresh scent without harsh chemicals.

Vinegar is a multi-purpose product. It can be used for literally thousands of tasks. You can use it for health purposes, for beauty (hair and bath), food and cooking, gardening, and house cleaning.

House cleaning is one important use for vinegar. Using vinegar instead of other products that contain harsh chemical can be a great choice for the health of your family. Why expose yourself and your family to harsh chemicals contained in cleaning products when you have a safer alternative that works just as well or better than other cleaners. There are several advantages to using vinegar instead of other cleaning products. One, it is a natural substance and is safer and healthier. Another advantage is that it is less expensive than commercial cleaners and it is readily available.

Here are five ways you can use vinegar in your household cleaning routine:



Window cleaning: Mix with water or use full strength to clean windows, glass and mirrors. Dry with crumpled newspaper to get a fresh streak free shine every time. It removes water spots and dirt for cleaning windows indoors and outside.

Floor cleaner: It is safe on your no wax vinyl, wood and tile floors. It removes dirt and build-up while leaving the floor looking clean and shiny. Add a ½ cup of vinegar to 1 gallon of water and mop up those dirty, messy floors with ease. You can also use it in the spray mops for quick clean-ups.

Dishes/dishwasher: Use vinegar in your dishwasher to remove build-up from the dishwashing detergent or use it as a rinse aid to leave your dishes streak-free. Run a cup of vinegar through a full dishwashing cycle once a month to clean and deodorize your dishwasher. Also you can use it in the sink in hot water with dish soap to remove soap build-up and water deposits from glassware.

Oven Cleaner: Use vinegar as a final rinse when you are cleaning your oven with the harsh alkali cleaners that stay in your oven and stink-up your kitchen when you use the newly cleaned oven after you scrub. Wipe the entire oven with vinegar to remove the chemical build-up and to freshen and polish the inside of the oven after a deep cleaning. It can also be used on self-cleaning ovens.

Washing Walls: Vinegar can remove harsh stains from walls with ease. It can remove nicotine stains if you have smokers or pen and crayon from little ones. Use vinegar just to wipe down your walls for normal washing; it absorbs odors and cleans the walls without striping the paint. Vinegar is a natural neutralizer, so it will freshen the air and leave your house smelling clean.

The cleaning tips I listed above are just a few of the household items and appliances that you can clean using vinegar. Vinegar can be used to safely clean just about anything in your home. Vinegar is one of the oldest cleaning products. It has been used for generations to keep things looking clean and smelling fresh. There are different kinds of vinegar you can purchase. The two that work best for house cleaning are distilled white vinegar and apple cider vinegar. If you can protect your family's health, use a natural cleaner that actually works and keeps your house looking and smelling clean. Why not use it for all of your household cleaning needs?
