Did you know that vinegar has many different uses in your home in place of harsh chemicals?

Try some of these great methods:

Remove Pet Odor - Spray some white vinegar onto your pet’s puddle when you’re cleaning it up to remove the odor as well as the stain.

Clean Mineral Deposits - Scrub your shower with vinegar to remove hard water stains, let it stand for an hour, then rinse. Clogged shower head? Tie a plastic baggie filled with vinegar around the head with a rubber band and let sit overnight, remove and rinse.

Absorb Smoke Smells - Vinegar can help to remove cigarette smoke from rooms and surfaces. Add it to your carpet shampoo solution to pull the smell out of carpet, dilute with water and spray/wipe walls, or even stick a bowl full of vinegar in smoky rooms to absorb odors before they set in.

Clean Your Refrigerator - Wipe up spills and stuck-on food with a rag and 1 part vinegar to 1 part warm water. Works like a charm!

Dissolve Kitchen and Bathroom Grime - hard water deposits, soap grime, and food spots are no match for baking soda, vinegar, and a toothbrush! Let the solution sit for 20 mintues to an hour on stubborn spots, then rinse or wipe with a warm damp cloth.

Unclog a Sink - This is an inexpensive way to get a drain moving again. Add 1/3 cup of baking soda and flush with a generous amount of vinegar, followed by hot water to completely flush the baking soda through the pipes.
