Vinegar is Magical


White vinegar is eco-friendly, cheap, and works miracles on so many jobs around the house. I buy it by the gallon and use it for cooking, cleaning, and deodorizing.


Cleaning/Deodorizing:

  • Laundry - Put a cup of vinegar in the laundry to take out pet odors, mildew smells, and soften clothes.

  • Steam Mop - fill your tank with 2/3 water to 1/3 vinegar to help sanitize, break down grime, and deodorize tile and hard floors.

  • Carpet Shampoo - Mix a cup of vinegar into the rinse water in order to take smells out of carpets and rugs.

  • Microwave - Put 1 cup of vinegar in a glass container and microwave for 4-5 minutes. This will soften the stuck-on messes so that they easily wipe away with a sponge or paper towel.

  • Coffee Maker - Run 50/50 vinegar/water through your drip coffee maker or Keurig to descale and clean the machine and water reservoirs.

Cooking:

My favorite recipe which works with either white or apple cider vinegar is below:

  • 2 large cucumbers

  • 1 large tomato or 2-3 roma tomatoes

  • 1 red onion

  • 1/2 cup italian dressing

  • 1/2 cup vinegar

  • 1tsp sugar or sugar substitute

Thinly slice all vegetables (a mandolin makes this a sinch!) and dress with a combination of dressing, vinegar, and sugar. Let sit in the refrigerator until thoroughly chilled. The recipe gets better on the 2nd day.
