Versatile Vinegar

Vinegar and it's many uses:
A collection from the Internet & Pinterest all of which I have tried successfully:

  1. 1 cup of vinegar in the microwave 5 minutes makes the messy thing a simple wipe down cleanup!
  2. 3 parts vinegar to 1 part water and spray it to prevent frost and ice on your car windows.
  3. Vinegar around the edges of the sandbox every couple of months will deter cats.
  4. Remove pet odors with a vinegar washing.
  5. Use straight vinegar to clean range hoods and greasy appliance surfaces.
  6. Cleaner for flooring, including Pergo and laminates: 1/3 part white vinegar, 1/3 part rubbing alcohol (to speed drying), 1/3 part water, several drops of dish washing liquid. Spray and mop.
  7. Clean counter tops and make them smell sweet again with a cloth soaked in undiluted white distilled vinegar.
  8. Clean and deodorize a drain by pouring in 1 cup baking soda, then one cup hot white distilled vinegar. Let this sit for 5 minutes or so, then run hot water down the drain.
  9. Remove mineral deposits from coffee makers by running white distilled vinegar through a cycle.  Follow up with 2 rinses.
  10. Clean your mini blinds with equal parts water and vinegar, dip fingertips of a white cotton glove in the mix and use your fingers to wipe both sides of the slats.
  11. Discourage ants by spraying undiluted white distilled vinegar where ever they enter.
  12. Wipe grease off exhaust fan grids with full strength vinegar.
  13. Remove wallpaper by using a paint roller to wet the surface very thoroughly with a solution of equal parts white distilled vinegar and hot water.
  14. Remove fireplace soot and grime with undiluted white distilled vinegar. Use a brush to scrub and a towel to blot up the wetness and dirt.
  15. Before painting old concrete, clean with full-strength white distilled vinegar. Let it air dry. Don't let it drain onto your grass though-it acts like Round-up.
  16. Clean the washer - run a gallon of distilled vinegar through your washing machine to clean it.
  17. Kill weeds - Spray full strength on weeds, but be careful it kills grass too.
  18. Remove perspiration stains from clothing - Apply one part vinegar to four parts water, then rinse.
  19. 2 tablespoons of vinegar before a meal—perhaps, as part of a vinaigrette salad dressing—will dramatically reduce the spike in blood concentrations of insulin and glucose that come after a meal.
  20. And of course - vinaigrette
