The Power of Vinegar

Homemade Cleaner  

Cleaners don't have to be pricey or chemical-laden to be effective. In fact, they don't even have to be store-bought. Create your own all-purpose cleaner by filling a spray bottle with equal parts white vinegar and water, then add whatever scents you want like essential oils or lemon juice to throw off the vinegar smell. Then, shake up the mixture, and you're ready for your next cleaning spree.

Why This Works

The acetic acid in vinegar kills viruses, germs, bacteria and mold. It also dissolves tough mineral deposits and stains like those found in sinks, toilets and tubs.

Benefits of Cleaning with Vinegar


  • inexpensive
  • no harsh chemicals
  • effective sanitizer
  • effective stain remover
  • safe for most surfaces

Warnings

1) Do not use on marble
2) Test on a small area before using on finished wood surfaces or tile
3) As with any cleaner, you should avoid all contact with the eyes and prolonged contact with the skin
