Descale your kettle.

Dishwasher instead of rinse aid

Half vinegar, Half water in a spray bottle for cleaning... Anything!

Clean windows & mirrors or use the whole bottle in the washing machine on the hottest setting to clean the washing machine smile

Use it to remove sweat smells/stains - pour wee bit directly onto sweat marks and wash as normal

A drop in your pan water for boiling eggs. Stops shell cracking.

I use about half a cup in with towels and heavy cottons. They go soft but don't smell and towels don't go plasticky and waterproof like with fabric conditioner.

YY to using vinegar in the washing machine.
Diluted with water for washing floors.
Diluted with water in spray bottle for cleaning surfaces.
Conditioning your hair (just rinse really well).
I usually add essential oil to counter the vinegar smell.

I buy vinegar in the large jugs and use it instead of chemicals all the time. smile

All of the above and pour a little in a cup to keep fruit flies away( in the summer). Pour bicarbonate of soda and vinegar down clogged drains, flush with boiling water.

With bicarb of soda in teapot/mugs banishes all tea stains

De scale your kettle. Clean mirrors. Clean windows. First three things off the top of my head.

To those in-the-know, can I also use white wine vinegar to clean?

superfluouscurves Sun 17-Feb-13 17:33:44

Yes you can! Especially good for tiles, glass, porcelain and stainless steel surfaces
