I am all about healthier and easy products for taking care of our families. For a couple of months now I have been using a vinegar water solution to clean everything from windows to my refrigerator. Vinegar is a great all purpose cleaner and it is made from corn! I never knew that! No preservatives, no additives, all natural! Love It! Vinegar has been used for 10,000 years. It just might be the world's oldest ingredient!
So very easy to make, fill a re-purposed spray bottle with 50% water - 50% white vinegar. That's it, and it cleans like a dream!
Another thing I just learned today about Vinegar: An open dish of white distilled vinegar will help remove paint smells from a room. Bonus!
Due to it's high level of acidity it kills most mold, bacteria, and germs. I would much rather spray my counter tops with vinegar than a bleach spray to kill bacteria after I have been slicing and dicing raw meats! There are so many more ways to use vinegar in your cleaning routines, I could never list them all, so I suggest you explore them at 1001 uses for White Vinegar! There are a ton of great ideas I could have never thought of!
I also wanted to share with you a way to improve upon an already great cleaner. I came across this great idea to create Scented Vinegars Cleansers that a fellow blogger , Monica created at her site The Yummy Life! I am so loving these ideas, I plan to pick up some fresh lemons today!
How Great is this? All natural, non-toxic and you can make it smell any way you like! And its easy! Love It!
