Vinegar Water For Cleaning Deodorizing Disinfectant and More

Vinegar Water For Cleaning Deodorizing Disinfectant and More.


Good Day, and Welcome to LilacsNDreams! Many of us are always looking for ways to clean, deodorize, disinfect our homes. Finding ways to do it effectively, inexpensively, and not having so many different cleaners around with all them chemicals too. Honestly they shouldn't be pricey, chemical-laden to be effective, and don't always have to be store bought either. One well known effective way that is versatile for your home is to use some vinegar, and water. 


Many benefits of cleaning with vinegar. It is inexpensive, no harsh chemicals, it's an effective sanitizer, stain remover, cuts grease and soap scum, dissolves mineral build up, and so much more. There are 100s of uses for this cleaner. I have read you Do Not use it on marble, make sure to test small area before you use it with finished wood surfaces or tile, and like any other cleaner avoid contact with your eyes, and prolonged contact with skin.

As you will learn after more research that vingear can be used with cleaning your home, making health and beauty products, remove odors, rid of pests, and so much more. You need to experiment with different recipes to see what it can do, and to find what works for you as well.

A precaution I did read is to NOT directly add vinegar to materials containing ammonia. This will create some harmful odors for you. 

Vinegar can be used to clean so many things in your home such as chrome sink faucets, BBQ grills, steam irons, items that have a mineral deposit, microwaves, some of your gold jewelry, and I have used it in assistance of cleaning some of that stubborn glassware too. It truly does work. 

Of course with this versatile method of cleaning there are way too many recipes to mention. Also, when you find a recipe you might find at times you will alter it to fit with what works for you as well. You will find recipes to mix it as is with the white distilled vinegar, and water. Sometimes you find mixing vinegar, and some salt can serve a purpose. I also had come across a method for baking soda, and some vinegar that is to work with unclogging and clearing a drain too. 

So, for about $2.00 a gallon what a savings this is for everyone. So many uses, and all in one bottle, or gallon bought too. I do have a small recipe to share with you. I have not tried it yet, but it is a starter for you, ok? Take 1-1/2 cup water in a 2 cup liquid measuring cup, add about 1/2 cup of white distilled vinegar....you see the white distilled vinegar used all the time. Heat in microwave for about 3 minutes, and sometimes less. This can help clean out your microwaves after you have mixed this, and can use it. 

Have any special vinegar recipes you found to work? If so, please share them with us, and let us know what you found to work for you. Thanks for sharing your time with LilacsNDreams. Come back to visit again soon. Have a wonderful day!
