8 Ways To Use Vinegar When Cleaning Your Home

If you are familiar with cleaning using natural ingredients then you know that vinegar is the most used product. You can use it alone or mix it with a couple of other ingredients to create a special powerful cleaner.

I also love vinegar. It’s really powerful at removing stains, cleaning certain surfaces, and even disinfecting. It’s also the perfect all-purpose cleaner.

Here Are 8 Ways You Can Use Vinegar For Cleaning

– Clean Your Showerhead

I will start off with one of the most common cleaning tricks – soaking your showerhead in vinegar overnight so that all the build-up dirt, impurities, germs, and soap scum can be removed easily.

– Make A Bathroom Cleaner

The first recipe I will share with you today contains vinegar, corn starch, and liquid soap. This is a bathroom cleaner and more specifically a way to remove soap scum.

– Make A Glass Cleaner

One of my favourite recipes has to be the one for glass cleaner. Of course, it can be used on windows, glass shower doors, and even stainless steel appliances or sinks.

In a spray bottle you should mix water, liquid soap, and white vinegar.

– Make A Toilet Bowl Cleaner

Did you know that a cup of baking soda, a cup of white vinegar, and a toilet brush is all you need to clean your toilet?

Yes, you don’t need any fancy cleaners – this one will work just as effective as the one you will buy from the store.

– Clean Your Microwave

Another great way to use vinegar is to clean your microwave.

Fill a microwave-safe bowl with water and add two tablespoons of vinegar in there. Place the bowl in your microwave and turn it on for 3-4 minutes.

Once the time is up leave the bowl in there for another 5 minutes before you open the door and remove it. The steam will loosen all the build-up, grease, and food residue making it so easy to wipe later.

– Clean Your Dishwasher

If you want to clean your dishwasher than follow these easy steps – grab a cup and fill it with water. Then place the cup on the top rack of your dishwasher (don’t put anything else in there) and run a full cycle.

– Make An All-Purpose Cleaner

Vinegar is usually used as an all-purpose cleaner so I had to feature it here.

In a spray bottle make sure you mix 2 cups of warm water, a tablespoon of baking soda, 1/2 cup of white vinegar, and 2 teaspoons of lemon juice. This is the perfect all-purpose cleaner, however, make sure you do not use it on granite, marble, or any other stone because the acidity in the vinegar and lemon juice will damage the surface!

– Deodorize Your Carpet

I must admit that I learned about this use of vinegar from a cleaning company in Liverpool – https://carpetcleaningliverpool.net/.

If your carpet smells bad then you can easily deodorize it with vinegar and baking soda. Just make sure you mix a tablespoon of vinegar and a teaspoon of baking soda in a spray bottle then shake it very well. Then you can add a few drops of your favourite essential oil in order for cancel the vinegar smell. Then spray very little on the smelly area and allow it to dry completely.
