We live in a world full of harsh, toxic cleaners. The house can smell like chemicals for days, and you’re pretty sure those ingredients aren’t safe for your kids, your pets, or yourself. We can only last so long in a poisonous cloud of cleaner before we find ourselves running for the hills in search for a better solution, and now that solution is here!
For about $3 a gallon, vinegar can free you from chemical-based cleaners and still give you the sparkly clean home you love. Help the environment, your home, and your family with these vinegar cleaning tips!
Dirt and streaks don’t stand a chance when you wash your windows with vinegar! Make a solution from one part water and one part vinegar. Add a few drops of dish soap, and you’re done! Spray the solution on the window and wipe off with a clean cloth. If any pesky streaks do remain, banish them for good by rubbing over them with newspaper.
Keep harmful chemicals away from your food by cleaning the inside of your fridge with apple cider vinegar. Removing the food and wiping down your fridge with equal parts water and apple cider vinegar once a month will not only keep things sparkly, but will also keep any questionable smells at bay!
No matter what you’re cleaning with, mopping wood floors is tricky. Many cleaners leave a nasty residue and others will kill the wood. With vinegar, cleaning wood floors is easy and you won’t need to worry about hurting your home! Mix ½ cup of white vinegar with a gallon of warm water for the perfect wood floor cleaner and mop away! For a deeper clean, use the same ratios and scrub the floors by hand to get rid of any chemical residue that may be sticking and attracting dirt.
You don’t have to stop at your home surfaces when it comes to cleaning with vinegar! It’s also great for cleaning off the dirt and waxy buildup on your fresh produce. Add a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar to every 4 cups of water and soak the produce for a few minutes before gentry scrubbing, rising, drying, and enjoying!
Leave behind a citrusy smell
While it’s better than a chemical scent, vinegar still isn’t most people’s favorite aroma. To give your vinegar a nice smell, fill a large jar with lemon or orange peels and cover with vinegar. After two weeks, strain out the peels and enjoy your new citrusy vinegar! The smell may not go away completely, but you can rest easy knowing that the smell is perfectly safe.
