When we’re good to our environment, we’re good to ourselves. We don’t need all those chemicals in the cleaning products we buy (often at a mighty high price), and the environment doesn’t need them either. Because of its acidity, white distilled vinegar is super effective at killing most mold, bacteria, and germs—plus, it’s eco-friendly.
Here are some suggestions on how to use vinegar to clean your home:
1. Shine chrome and remove lime buildup by making a paste of 2 tablespoons salt, and 1 teaspoon white distilled vinegar.
2. For a natural scouring cleanser, mix 1/4 cup baking soda, 1 tablespoon liquid detergent, and just enough white vinegar to give it a thick and creamy texture.
3. Make your own window cleaner with 1/2 cup ammonia, 2 cups white vinegar, and 2 tablespoons cornstarch, mixed in a gallon of water.
