Using Vinegar as a household cleaner

If you are looking for a more natural and toxic free approach to cleaning then vinegar can be a great tool to clean many surfaces. Here we look at some of the common uses of vinegar when it comes to your domestic cleaning duties:

Adding Vinegar to the rinse cycle

If you are looking for a cheaper and more natural approach, then vinegar can be used as a replacement for liquid fabric softener. It offers a great way to get rid of odours and keep your fabric soft.

A great way to clean the shower

Using a combination of Vinegar and baking Soda is not only cheap, but also a super effective way to keep your shower area clean. Great for the shower cubicle, glass and tiles, this combination offers the perfect way to keep this area sparkling and free from dirt and grime.

Keep your home germ free

If you have had some sickness in the home and feel there are some nasty germs lurking around, using baby wipes soaked in vinegar on door knobs, toilet areas and other common areas can offer a cheap and effective way to combat bacteria and bugs in the home.

Keeping childrens toys clean

A very effective and safe way to clean children’s toys is using vinegar. Being a natural substance free from hazardous chemicals, it’s a great way to keep them free of germs and bacteria.

Keep that toilet clean

Using vinegar mixed with water in a spray bottle provides an easy and chemical free way to keep the WC and cistern spotless very easily.

All the kitchen appliances

Whether its the fridge, cooker or the hob where lots of grime can build up over time, a vinegar mixture applied to a soft rag or sponge makes cleaning these surfaces very simple.

Crystal Clear Windows

A very old but effective technique is to use newspaper with vinegar to clean windows around the home. being more or less lint free newspaper complements the vinegar well to clean thoroughly, keeping the glass streak free at the same time.

Mopping the Floors

As we have seen vinegar can really be used for just about all household cleaning duties, and this includes mopping the floors too! Simply mix about 1/4 of a cup of white vinegar with warm water and off you go. Being a natural disinfectant it works a treat on most floor types. There are however some type of floor such as marble and hardwood where vinegar can actually damage the surface, so better to check if you are not sure before using.

So whether you are trying to save money on cleaning products, trying to care for the environment, or simply don’t have time to go to the shops, then vinegar can have some great uses for cleaning around the home!
