You know the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding, and how her father is obsessed with using windex for everything? Well that's how I am with white vinegar...and it works! Nothing fancy here, we are talking about distilled white vinegar. The photos are the brands I happen to have in my home right now, I am not loyal to any particular one.
There are so many uses for it, it's endless. My consistent use of it started many years ago as a cleaning aid ( neurotic neat freak here ) but I now use it for much more . Hint, the largest organ in the body.
Vinegar is about 5% acetic acid, the acid that kills bacteria and viruses.
You may already know to put it in your dishwaher to clean it out, and get rid of any odors, I use it the same way in my washing machine. It's great to wipe your kitchen countertops with, mixed with water, you can put it in a spray bottle. It's also good for tile or stone floors. I keep a spray bottle available as well to spray my yoga mats with after class. Don't forget to do both sides of the mat.
I buy the industrial size and refill the smaller bottles with it.
Now here is a fact that you may not know...
Many years ago my dermatologist turned me onto using it for my face, and I have done so ever since. I keep a Fiji bottle of water in my bathroom to wipe my face with after washing. Here is what you do. Take a 500 mL size bottle of water, take out about 2 tablespoons of the water and replace with white vinegar, use it as you would a toner.
I was also recently told it is good to put on stings.
Early on Doug thought it was just a bottle of Fiji and took a sip.....he now swipes his face with it instead.
