White-distilled vinegar is an inexpensive household cleaner, effective for killing bacteria, most types of mold, and germs. This multi-purpose product is highly versatile and can be found in your own pantry. Homes and offices can be easily cleaned with vinegar. One container can take care of your bathroom and kitchen cleaning, laundry, weeds, and even insects. Vinegar is also economical and very environmentally-friendly. It is a weak form of acetic acid that is completely edible, reducing worry by parents of small children who may not want toxic cleaners in their home. The uses of white-distilled vinegar are endless!
Shower Door: Spray down both sides of the shower door with a full-strength vinegar spray. Allow it to sit for ten minutes and rinse with warm water. Squeegee the glass after rinsing to remove hard-water deposits.
Toilet: To get a sparkling white toilet, clean it with vinegar and allow it to sit overnight. Pour two cups of white-distilled vinegar onto the inside and outside of the toilet. Allow it to sit overnight and scrub it down with a toilet brush in the morning. Rinse with warm water.
Linoleum Floors: Bathroom linoleum floors can be easily cleaned with a vinegar solution. Add 1 cup of white-distilled vinegar for each gallon of hot water you use to wash the floor. Use a scrub brush or bristled mop to remove residue and make the floor shine.
Freshen Air: Vinegar can freshen the air in the bathroom in between visits from the cleaning crew. Combine 1 teaspoon of baking soda with 1 tablespoon of vinegar and 1 cup of water. Spray the solution into the air when needed.
Carpets: For spills and stains on carpets, a vinegar solution can be sprayed onto the area. The results can look just as great as a commercial cleaning service would do, but takes slightly more elbow grease. Use a soft cloth or sponge to soak up as much liquid from the area as possible. Spray a mixture of half white-distilled vinegar and half water to the area and let it sit for two minutes. Blot with a towel and repeat if needed.
Furniture: Children will occasionally decorate living room furniture and surfaces with stickers or stamps. To remove the stickers and sticky residue from furniture and other living room surfaces, spray the area with full-strength white-distilled vinegar. Allow it to sit on the area for ten minutes and wipe clean with a warm, wet cloth and dry.
Blinds: White blinds in your living room windows can be easily cleaned with white-distilled vinegar. Wear a pair of white cotton gloves and dip several gloved fingers into a vinegar solution of half vinegar and half warm water. Run your wet fingers across each side of the blinds.
In between visits from your home and commercial cleaning services, white-distilled vinegar is a highly effective and versatile cleaning product that can be used in nearly any room of your home for cleaning purposes. For more details, please call 314-609-7909.
