The most commonly available ingredient in every pantry is a magical potion to clean just about everything in your homes. From removing stains and odour to cleaning windows and laundry, this multi purpose cleaning liquid works wonders in your homes. Here are 5 great cleaning tips with vinegar.

1. Windows

In a spray bottle, add 2 tablespoons of white vinegar in a gallon of water and shake well to mix it. Once it’s mixed, all you have to do is spray and wipe clean with a piece of cloth. Making your windows cleaner with organic ingredients instead of a chemical window cleaner not only saves you money but is also a healthier option. The Sponge wipes can come to the rescue for streak free and effortless cleaning of windows when you are running low on time. 

2. Burnt-on food stains

Every mother who has had to juggle 15 tasks at once will vouch for the pain of having to deal with burnt-on food stains. Sprinkle a little baking soda on the stain and add vinegar. The foaming chemical reaction makes it so easy to clean away the burnt-on food that scrubbing is not required. Better yet you can use a steel scrubber to make this cleaning easier. 

3.  Hand towels

Repeated use makes our hand towels stiff and often crusted with dirt. To soften and restore these towels to softness, soak them in ½ cup of white vinegar without any detergent. Alternatively, you can also throw them in the washing machine with ½ cup of white vinegar. This helps to remove any detergent residue and mineral buildup that makes the towels stiff and scratchy.

4. Vegetables

Even fresh bought vegetables have lots of bacteria and pesticide residue. Mix water and vinegar in a 3:1 ratio in a spray bottle. Spray the fruits and vegetables with this solution and then rinse with water to get rid of the germs bacteria and chemical residues from fruits and veggies.

5. Glue stains

Removing label stains from cutlery and crockery is one of the most annoying tasks. As you peel away the label, you are left with a very stubborn glue residue. Take a cotton ball and apply vinegar directly to the adhesive stain, for more stubborn stains you can use a green scrub pad. You’ll be surprised with the results.
