Vinegar Uses

1.Used as a hair rinse, vinegar neutralizes the alkali left by shampoos.

2.A quarter cup in a quart of water makes a good window cleaner.

A reader adds: When you use vinegar in your water to wash windows, dry

with newspapers. Your windows will sparkle!

3.Fabric softener and static cling reducer - use as you would liquid

fabric softener.

4.Air freshener, used with baking soda - use 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1

tablespoon vinegar and 2 cups of water. After it stops foaming, mix

well, and use in a (recycled) spray bottle into the air.

5.Chewing gum dissolver - saturate the area with vinegar. If the vinegar

is heated, it will work faster.

6.Stain remover - for stains caused by grass, coffee, tea, fruits and

berries. Soak clothing in full strength vinegar.

7.Corn and callus remover - soak a piece of stale bread (a cloth would

probably do as well) in vinegar, and tape it over the callus or corn

overnight.

8.Age spot fader - Mix equal parts of onion juice and vinegar and use it

daily on age spots. This will take a few weeks to work, just like its

expensive relative from the store.

9.Kill grass or weeds by pouring hot vinegar on it. This might take a

couple of times to work completely.

10.Wash your windshield with vinegar in the winter to help keep ice and

frost away.

11. If you have a septic tank, use vinegar instead of harsh chemicals to

clean the toilet bowl. Let it set overnight if you can; it will help

keep germs down.

12.Spray your hands with a mist of vinegar, or dip them in vinegar and

dry after washing dishes or having them in soapy water to keep your

hands soft.

13.It's an ongoing battle as to whether vinegar can help you lose

weight, but the ones who say it will, say to drink a glass of water

before each meal in which you've added a tablespoon of vinegar and a

tablespoon of honey.

14.Use diluted 1:1 in water to take pet odors out of carpets. Find the

spot, and saturate it with about 1 1/2 times the original volume. Let

set for awhile then blot up. Repeat if your cloth is very dirty after

blotting. I make sure to turn on a fan and open a window, especially for

large spots!

15.Splash vinegar on your varicose veins. The vinegar is supposed to

reduce the veins and relieve the pain and swelling. Of course, you might

smell like a tossed salad!

16. I put about a tablespoon of vinegar in the water when poaching eggs.

It helps the eggs to keep their shape. No taste of vinegar either.

17.A reader says; My best use for vinegar is to use 1 tablespoon vinegar

to an 8 ounce glass of warm water for a sore throat. Gargle every hour

and swallow after gargling, with two mouthfuls. I got this from a

Vermont Folk Medicine book by D.C.Jarvis many years ago. If started at

the first hint of a sore throat, it always works, usually within a

night's sleep. I don't mind the taste, but some children might.

18.It is also helpful when children get lice, if you take warm vinegar

and put it on the hair also take your nit comb and dip it in the

vinegar. As you run it through the hair it helps remove the nits. It is

supposed to be able to help break down the glue the nits use to stay

attached to the hair.

19.Set a container (shallow bowl) of vinegar throughout the house to

absorb unpleasant odors. Works great on burned food odors. Do not use

styrofoam. It will soak thru it.

20.Vinegar and olive oil with a selection of herbs on your salad. A

different reader adds: I like to use vinegar the old-fashioned way: I

eat it!! I use all sorts of vinegars as salad dressing ingredients (my

favorite is the classic red wine vinegar mixed with olive oil). I also

eat my fish with malt vinegar, which is also very good on french fries.

21.This reader says: I liked the 'spray mister' approach to air

freshening, but as a sometimes poor bachelor cook, I have blackened fish

when it isn't on the menu. Vinegar in a towel, twirled about the head

will quickly stop the smoke detectors from screaming. It also freshens

the air, and captures the smoke smell before the whole house is caught.

Added by another reader: Put vinegar on white bread around a house to

get rid of smoke smell fom a fire.

22.Another reader writes: You can use vinegar to remove wall paper. I

just redid my entire kitchen and it was a snap. First remove top layer

of wallpaper. Then spray vinegar on and let set for a minute or two.

Then pull backing away. Scrape excess glue off wall. Wipe remaining glue

off with vinegar and rinse with water. You don't have to use harse

chemicals and it is cheap, cheap, cheap.

23.This reader writes: My grandmother swears by vinegar as an antiseptic

for abrasions,to reduce itch from poison ivy or mosquito bites,and even

to help rehydrate sunburned skin.

24.She also uses it diluted 50/50 as a skin cleanser as most soaps are

alkaline as compared to skin ph.

25.On a different note, most meat marinades are most effective if

acidic, so an extra few spoonfuls of vinegar can't hurt.

26.On heavily tarnished copper or copper-alloy to be cleaned up, use a

paste made of salt and vinegar.

27.A reader writes: I use white (not apple cider) vinegar mixed with

water to rinse off the dishes after washing them to take the soap off

and leave them squeeky clean. This also takes the soap residue off of my

hands at the same time.

28.Another reader wrote: I am allergic to crabs. However, I love them. I

have found that when I dip my crabmeat in vinegar, I don't get an

allergic reaction. This may not work for everyone, but it works for me.

29.Pour vinegar around the sides of your pool and it helps keeps flies

away.

30.Add 1/2 cup vinegar to a gal. of water to keep your vinyl no wax

floors clean and shining.

31.USE as a meat tenderizer. Add a tablespoon to water when boiling ribs

or meat for stews, and even the toughest meat will be so tender you can

cut with fork or will fall off the bone.

32.One teaspoon to one tablespoon of vinegar gets rid of hiccups.

33.Vinegar is great for removing calcium deposit build up. Use full

strength and allow to set. Time depends on condition.

 

34.Sunburn Remedy:

* At bedtime, cover sunburns with a towel soaked in water and vinegar and

try to persuade the victim to sleep this way. Younger ones, of course,

will have a struggle with this, especially because of the smell!

* Put vineagar in a spray bottle and spray on sunburn. It soothes for

quite a length of time. Just like store bought stuff.

* A reader wrote this: I used this on my son when his legs were sunburned.

I used half and half which was half water and half vinegar. I saturated

tea towels in it and layed them on his legs and he said it didn't smell

too good but it sure took out the burning. You must do this several

times but it works and then it gives you a nice tan.

* To relieve swelling and fluid from too much sun, mix a paste of baking

soda and apple cider vinegar and apply. This reader says it will draw

out the fluid.

35.Use 2 cups of cider vinegar in the tub to soak sore muscles and add

potassium to muscles.

36.Use for a throat soother. Take equal amounts of honey and cider

vinegar, stir or shake until dissolved. Take a tablespoon at a time to

cut mucuous in the throat.

37.Heat vinegar to boiling point. Then poor over your fixtures that have

deposits of lime. This will release or remove the deposit.

38.Use a cup of vinegar in two gallons of water in the diaper pail to

neutralize the urine in cloth diapers. It also helps keep them from

staining.

39.Keep a spray bottle of 50% vinegar, 50% water near the laundry

station. Spray it on clothing stains before tossing the clothing into

the washer (just as you would a commercial spray stain remover).

40.As a carpet spot and stain remover - take a trigger spray bottle and

fill with one part white vinegar to seven parts water. Take a second

spray bottle and fill with one part white, non sudsy amonnia and seven

parts water. Saturate stain with vinegar solution. Let dwell for a few

minutes and blot thoroughly with a clean, white cloth. Then go over the

area with the ammonia solution, let dwell and blot again. Repeat until

the stain is gone. Also works for pet stains to help remove the odors.

41.Keep a solution of 50/50 white vinegar and water in a spray bottle to

use for clean ing windows.

42.From a reader: When I apply a weak bleach solution (to a counter

after handling raw chicken, or to grout to whiten it), even after

rinsing it still smells like bleach. Spraying it with the vinegar

solution does away with the bleachy smell. This also works if you use

bleach when washing fabric - try an extra rinse with a cup of vinegar in

it to get rid of the bleach smell.

Note: A reader cautioned against using vinegar with bleach because it

produces chlorine gas, so I asked about it on our chemistry guide's

forum here at About.com. He said that, while the mixture does produce

chlorine gas, using a few drops at a time (to rinse hands or counter, as

opposed to gallons) as a spot neutralizer would cause no problem. You

can read the posts yourself, if you like.

43.Another reader wrote this: Fill the water reservoir half way and run

the coffee maker as you normally do and then run it once full of water

and the coffee maker will be spotless. (Well, cleaner anyway.)

44.Vinegar in drinking water is very effective in eliminating the

low-grade fevers that are present in Chronic Fatigue sufferers. It also

helps eliminate the 'thrush' coating in the mouth which is sometimes

caused by antibiotic use. Mix four tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to

a gallon of drinking water. Drink up to one gallon each day.

45.Add a splash of vinegar, a tablespoon or so, to the water when you

hardboil eggs. If one cracks, it will not boil out of the shell.

46.Add a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar to a quart of drinking water.

Helps to deal with heat stress. Also helps to repel mosquitos.

47.From another reader: After years of suffering from athlete's foot,

consulting doctors, and spending hundreds of dollars on so called cures

(some presciption, some over the counter), I read in one of the

magazines in which I subscibe to try soaking in vinegar. Something was

said about it changing skin ph so that the fungus could not grow. I

soaked three evenings in a row. Now, no more fungus and that has been

several months ago.

48.This reader says: I feed vinegar to my horses to keep the flies away.

I pour 1/4 cup of cider vinegar on their grain once a day and it really

keeps the flies away from them! They seem to like it too.

49.I use cloth diapers and my baby kept breaking out in a rash. From

another web site, it suggested adding a cup of vinegar during the rinse

cycle. It equalizes the ph balance. I've been doing it ever since and,

viola, no rash!

50.This readers says: I use white or cider vinegar to clean out the

chicken's and cat's water containers. I pour a small amount in the

container, take a rag and wash the gunky parts and rinse. I rinse an

extra time and dump on my plants outside. It keeps the water containers

clean without all that gunky buildup. I do it once a month.

51.Soak shower head in vinegar overnight, then rinse in hot water, to

remove water deposits and keep it flowing freely.

52.From another reader: When my kids were small, sometimes they would

not have a good car riding experience ...vomiting in the car. We cleaned

it out and nothing would get rid of that small, especially when the car

got warm. So, we placed a bowl of vinegar in a bowl on the floor of the

car, closed it up for the night. In the morning, no more smell. And it

never came back.

53.Yet another reader - We live in the country with 4 dogs as part of

our family,they sit on the couch,etc. BUT,they love to chase skunks

since I don't usually keep tomato juice around,vinegar has come to my

rescue. It doesn't take it away completely but its bearable. Keep away

from eyes, of course.

54.And this one: A nurse told me molds grow in humidifiers used in sick

rooms. After a couple of days' use, she rinsed out a humidifier, then

refilled it, adding maybe 1/4 cup vinegar. She would run this for a

couple of minutes in the bathroom, with the door closed and the window

open, to kill the molds. Then she'd rinse it, run it again with just

clear water, rinse that, and declare it fit for service again. She was

also adamant about not just pouring more water in to refill, but rinsed

the reservoir out each time to retard growth of nasty stuff she didn't

want spraying all around the sick room.

55.This reader says - I hate to wear gloves when gardening (except, of

course when working with roses, blackberries or thistles) and once in a

while I get a nick or scratch. Since I shoveled most of it INTO my

garden, I know what my hands are in, and I'm 120 yards downhill from the

bathroom sink and the disinfectant! My trusty spray bottle of full

strength white vinegar to the rescue. Stings for a second or two until

the endorphins kick in, but I don't have to stop what I'm doing and make

a special trip back up hill. I've NEVER had an infection in a scratch

since I discovered this trick.

56.From another reader: We have a distiller for our water. Every

Saturday, I put a gallon of vinegar in the distiller and turn it on.

When it boils, it's done. Then I let the vinegar cool down and use it

for cleaning the coffee and tea pots. A gallon usually lasts a good

month before losing it's efficiency.

57.. Remove water stains from leather by rubbing with a cloth dipped in

a vinegar and water solution.

58.Drink a couple of spoonfuls a day to keep mosquitoes away - your

perspiration will be unpleasant.

59.1 tsp cider vinegar with one tsp honey taken three times daily helps

with arthritis. It dissolves the crystal deposits of uric acid that form

between joints (and also in muscles as with muscular rheumatism). Also

dissolves osteophytes (bony spurs) over long periods.

While this seems to be effective, we are not claiming to give medical

advice. Always ask your doctor before attempting to diagnose yourself or
