If you are looking for a multipurpose cleaner that makes just about any item sparkle, all you need to do is peer into your kitchen cabinet. There it is, your bottle of magic potion: vinegar! It is as good as 20 assorted multipurpose cleaning liquids for various surfaces, minus the price tag. Have a look at what it can do around your home and save tons of money while you create a sparkling home!
Is your microwave smelling of burnt or spoiled food? Fill a microwave safe bowl with a half cup of water, a quarter cup of white vinegar and squeeze a few drops of lemon juice for good effect. Heat it on high for three minutes. Wait another three minutes, then pull out a microfibre cloth or paper towel and wipe off all those smells. Voila! Your microwave smells fresh again.
Yes, cleaning appliances do need cleaning too. Dishwashers gather a musty smell from hours of rinsing dirty dishes. They need some tender, loving care from you too. Place a glass bowl or cup on the top rack of your dishwasher and top up with white vinegar. Sprinkle baking soda on the bottom, below the lower rack. Run the dishwasher on the hottest setting for the full cycle.
No need to scrub the soap suds from your kitchen or bathroom faucets. Just wipe clean with a cloth soaked in white vinegar. Wipe dry after a few minutes with a dry paper towel. Your faucet will shine with new life.
Don’t keep turning up your nose on the strong multipurpose cleaners that you scrub the bathroom fittings with. Use the vinegar to bring back the sparkle instead. Heat one and a half cups of vinegar until it’s quite hot; pour it carefully into a spray bottle without scalding yourself. Add a cup and a half of dishwashing liquid. Shake well and spray on your tub and shower head. Stains come off in seconds; smells fade away in minutes. Take a deep breath and smile! It’s a miracle! You can also fill up a ziplock bag with white vinegar and dunk the shower head into it, securing it with a rubber band. Let it soak overnight. Next morning, wipe clean with a cloth.
Stop! Don’t throw away paint brushes with old paint crusted on the bristles. Spring them back to life with vinegar. Mix equal parts of hot water and white vinegar in an old tumbler. Soak the brushes for about 30 minutes to an hour. Rinse well with a gentle dishwashing liquid. You save both the brushes and several dollars too.
Now work the magic of vinegar on your carpet. Mix equal parts of white vinegar with water, spray directly on carpet stains. Sprinkle baking soda on the vinegar. Let them dance together for a while. Scrub with a bristle brush, rinse and vacuum clean when dry. Now you dance with joy!
