It gets rid of odors, cleans tough-to-clean surfaces and is helpful in so many other ways!

10 MORE Uses for Distilled White Vinegar! 

11. Toilet Cleaner
Just toss a cup of vinegar into your toilet overnight and it will be a whole lot easier to scrub the stains off. 

12. Cleans Mold and Mildew
"A natural cleaner that kills mold, mildew, and bacteria, vinegar is an effective alternative to pricey bathroom cleaners. It will remove mineral deposits from sinks and faucets, and it will also clean the bathtub, ceramic tile in the shower, shower doors, and even the toilet. Spray it on and rinse it off with water. Stubborn mold or stains may require a second dose. Use a squeegee on the shower door to avoid water spots, and turn on the bathroom fan or open a window to vent the vinegar smell."

13. Remove Water Rings on Wood (Read Directions)
"Set a cold drink on your wood furniture without using a coaster and you’ll leave a round reminder not to do it again. To remove it, dip a white cloth in a mixture of equal parts vinegar and vegetable oil, and rub out the stain, wiping with the grain. Then clean the area with a dry cloth to make the wood shine. You can also remove water rings from leather furniture by dabbing them with vinegar on a cloth."

14. De-Clog a Shower Head
"The tiny openings in a shower head can get clogged over time from minerals such as calcium and magnesium that are in the water. If you don’t have a water softener, mineral deposits are even more likely to accumulate. To get your shower back to full power, fill a plastic bag with vinegar and place it over the shower head, then tie the bag tight to the shower arm. Let it sit overnight. Remove the bag in the morning, rinse off the shower head with water, then shower away. It’ll blast water like the day you bought it."

15. Helps Remove Grease
"Food just tastes better when it’s cooked on a grill. But dripping grease, splattered barbeque sauce, and stray pieces of meat can get baked onto the grates and become a bear to clean. Vinegar is a simple, safe way to clean them and allow you to fire up the grill and start cooking right away. Spray straight vinegar onto the grates, then scrub them with a wire or grill brush until they’re clean."

16. Remove Sticker or Price-Tag Residue
(This is one I have done many times and it works wonders!!) "We’ve all been there: You try to remove price tags from newly bought items, but the paper surface peels and leaves sticky residue behind. Rubbing it with a damp cloth typically won’t work, or at least not quickly. A better way is to wipe or spray with vinegar. Let it soak in for a couple minutes, then wipe away the debris with a paper towel or cloth. It’ll come right off. This process also works for decals on windows, and bumper stickers on vehicles."

17. Bring Back Shine to Old Silver/Jewelry
"Vinegar can bring back the shine to dull silver, including jewelry, vases, ornaments, and silverware. Let the silver soak in a mixture of vinegar and a tablespoon or two of baking soda. Keep your items in the mixture for about 15 minutes, then rinse them under warm water and polish dry with a soft cloth. If an item is too large to soak in the mixture, rub the solution on the silver and let it sit for 15 minutes or so, then rinse and polish."

18. Natural Weed Killer
"Lawn and garden stores typically sell weed killers that contain acetic acid, which is also found in vinegar. For an environmentally friendly solution that won’t harm pets or wildlife but can eliminate a small amount of weeds, such as those growing in the cracks in your driveway or sidewalk, pour straight vinegar directly onto them. You may have to do this a couple times to completely kill the weeds."

19. Remove Fresh Carpet Stains
"The morning after a good party, it’s not uncommon to discover a beer stain or two in the carpet. If the stain is still damp, blot up what you can with a dry white towel. To remove the stain, spray it with one part vinegar and two parts water. Then blot up the vinegar solution, making sure to use a white towel so a color won’t bleed into the carpet. The vinegar will remove the stain and the beer odor."

20. Keep Colors Bright
Keep your colors bright by adding a cup of vinegar to your rinse cycle!
