We all live busy hectic lives with so much to do and learn. Since there is a never ending task to know it all, we can use some tips here and there to remind us of things that we have forgotten or learn new ones.
Some Uses for Vinegar:
§ Gardeners, the use of toxic ingredients to kill garden weeds will affect the health of your family. Therefore, spray full strength vinegar over your garden weeds and surely they will be gone.
§ Drinking Glasses: Soak them in full strength warm-to-hot vinegar for half an hour and then scrub them with a nylon sponge. They will become alive again. However, if not, that means that unfortunately they are etched for good.
§ Window Cleaner: Non-toxic solution. Get a clean spray bottle and make sure it is labeled very clear. In a glass container mix equal amounts of water and household vinegar. When ready to clean your windows use newspaper and the vinegar cleaner to make those windows shine.
§ Cut Flowers: Just add two tablespoons of white vinegar per quart of water in the vase that you will put your cut flowers. This little effort will make you flowers look pretty for a longer time.
§ Your Coffee Maker Machine: Vinegar will remove the mineral deposits in your coffee maker machine. Just fill the reservoir with pure undiluted vinegar. Turn it on and wait until it goes through the brew cycle. Then, turn it off and wait a few minutes. Pour the vinegar in again, however, this time let it sit for about 20-30 minutes. After the waiting period, discard the hot vinegar in your sink and fill the reservoir with clean running water. Turn it on and wait until it goes through the brew cycle again, however, do this last step about 3 times.
§ Garbage Disposal: When you schedule yourself to clean your coffee maker, also do your garbage disposal to take advantage of the vinegar twice. First, pour about ¾ cups of baking soda down your sink garbage disposal, followed by at least ½ a cup of white vinegar and let it sit for 30 minutes. Then, throw in 3 or 4 ice cubes, open the hot water faucet and run the garbage disposal.
