Cleaning Powers of White Distilled Vinegar

Using white distilled vinegar for cleaning is great for many reasons. It’s good at killing harmful germs and bacteria because of its acidity level, but it’s not as harmful as something like bleach. It’s very environmentally sound, and won’t break the bank either. Here are some uses for white distilled vinegar.

-Clean counter tops

Use white distilled vinegar as a non-harmful way to leave your counter tops smelling great

-Deodorize sink drains and garbage disposals

Pour about ½ to 1 cup of baking soda, and the same amount of white distilled vinegar down the drain or garbage disposal, let sit for about 5 minutes, then pour hot water down.

-Clean microwaves

Heat up a mixture of half water and half white distilled vinegar to a boil in the microwave, and it will leave the appliance smelling good and baked on food will wipe off easier.

-Clean coffee makers

Fill water reservoir with about a cup of white distilled vinegar, run it through the cycle to clean, then run water through about 2 more times to rinse it out.

-Clean and disinfect baby toys

Add a little white distilled vinegar to some soapy water to add a little more kick to clean baby toys, without using harmful substances.
