5 Useful Tips On Using Vinegar In House Cleaning

Lifehacks

There is probably (almost) no one in the world who does not have vinegar in their house or apartment. This liquid is really great for removing stains, freshening laundry, cleaning windows, and many other things. In addition, it is inexpensive and, therefore, feasible for everyone to use. But, at the same time, vinegar is acidic, which means that it can significantly damage certain items. That is why today we would like to let you know when you can use vinegar, and under what circumstances it should definitely be avoided.

So here's what you can clean with vinegar:

1. Windows

Instead of buying glass cleaners that are often quite expensive, mix 2 tablespoons of white vinegar with 128 oz (3.8 liters) of water and pour this into a spray bottle. Then spray this mixture on your windows and wipe with a dry cloth.

2. The dishwasher

To properly clean the dishwasher, it is recommended that you place a large glass measuring cup filled with two doses of vinegar on the top rack and then run your dishwasher as usual, but without detergent. This will thoroughly clean your device.

3. Towels

When your towels get stiff, put them in your washing machine with half a cup of white vinegar, but without detergent. This will help remove laundry residues and minerals.

4. Carpet

To eliminate all types of carpet stains, mix a tablespoon of liquid dish soap, and a tablespoon of white vinegar into two cups of warm water. Use a clean white cloth or sponge to apply some of this mixture to the stain, dabbing it frequently with a dry cloth until the stain disappears.

5. Groceries

Vinegar can help eliminate bacteria and pesticide residues from fruits and vegetables. To do this, mix three parts water with a portion of white vinegar, pour this into a spray bottle and spray. Rinse with water.

Here's what you should never clean with vinegar so you do not damage it:

  • granite and marble countertops (the acid in vinegar can damage natural stone);
  • stone tiles;
  • irons (vinegar can damage the internal parts of an iron, so never clean it with vinegar);
  • the floor.

Take advantage of our tips and vinegar will help you remove stains where possible while keeping you from damaging other objects. Good luck!
