It might be a little bit early to start Spring Cleaning. Even so, you still have to take the time to clean your house. Purchasing a bunch of cleaning products can cost a lot of money. Instead, why not try using vinegar? You can substitute vinegar for many types of cleaning products.
How to Use Vinegar in Cleaning Products
Vinegar is an all natural cleaner that can easily be used in a variety of ways. It is environmentally friendly. Vinegar is 90% effective against mold and 99.9% effective against bacteria. Vinegar also makes a great cleaning product because it is acidic and can dissolve mineral deposits. Best of all, vinegar is inexpensive and a little bit goes a long way!
Remove lime buildup from the chrome in a sink by making a paste from 2 tablespoons of salt and 1 teaspoon of white distilled vinegar. Use that paste to scrub away the buildup.
Remove soap buildup from faucets in your bathroom by scrubbing them with a solution that is made of 1 part salt to 4 parts distilled white vinegar.
Get rid of those hard to remove calcium deposits on faucets the easy way. Soak a cloth in white distilled vinegar. Wrap the cloth around the area that has calcium deposits. Let it soak overnight. The next day, remove the cloth and use it to wipe away any remaining stains.
Prevent hard water stain from building up on glass shower doors without scrubbing. Take your shower. Squeegee the glass. Fill a spray bottle with full-strength white distilled vinegar. Spray the glass shower doors with the vinegar. The vinegar helps to break down the calcium deposits that are left behind by hard water.
Clean the shelves and walls that are inside your refrigerator with a solution that is made up of water and distilled vinegar. Make a half water, half vinegar, solution. Use it to clean, disinfect, and freshen up your fridge.
Tired of the stains on your coffee mugs? Try this! Mix up baking soda and distilled white vinegar in equal parts. Scrub those stains with the mixture. Rinse the mugs clean. The stain should come right off!
Deodorize and disinfect a toilet bowl with vinegar instead of an expensive toilet bowl cleaner. Pour one cup (or more) of white distilled vinegar into the toilet bowl. Let it sit overnight (or for at least a few hours). Use the toilet brush to scrub the inside of the toilet bowl. Flush the stains and odor away.
Tired of trying to scrub away the film in your bathtub? Instead of scrubbing, wipe the tub with white distilled vinegar. Scour with some baking soda. Rinse the stain away.
