I've used vinegar a few times for various cleaning projects, but these three are new to me and will be a constant in our home now. I'm always a fan of cleaning with more natural products—especially when it comes to things you eat or come into contact with daily!
1. Makeup brushes: mix one part vinegar to one part water, swirl brush in vinegar mix and squeeze the bristles to work it in. Then rinse in water, swirl in vinegar mix and rinse in water again until water runs clear.
2. Tile floors: mix one part vinegar to three parts water (example: one cup vinegar with three cups water) in bucket or sink and use as mopping water for floors. Also helps add shine to the tile!
3. Fruit and veggies: mix up a spray bottle of equal parts vinegar and water and spray liberally onto fruit or vegetables when washing them in water. Rinses free of any vinegar tastes and it kills over 90% of bacteria, I believe, including the dreaded cyclospora (intestinal infection causing by ingesting parasite-contaminated fruits and veggies).
Is vinegar a staple among your household cleaners? What do you use it for?
