Vinegar is one of the most widely used natural cleaning solutions out there. Vinegar is tough, effective, and useful for a number of areas of your home. To utilize vinegar correctly you need to take into consideration what surface you are cleaning and how much you will need. Here are some tips and tricks to know when using vinegar to clean your home.
1. Dishwasher Cleaning: To get a freshly cleaned dishwasher utilize some white distilled vinegar! Pour one cup of white distilled vinegar into the empty dishwasher and run it through a whole cycle. This will not only remove odors but will remove buildup of soap inside. This is most effective when done monthly.
2. Coffeemaker Cleaning: Having a clean coffee maker can make all the difference in taste! To clean your coffee maker fill the water holder with one cup of white distilled vinegar and run it through a brew cycle. After, to get rid of any residual vinegar or smell, run one or two regular cycles with water. This process will clean the inside of the brewer and get rid of any mineral deposits that make your coffee taste strange.
3. Showerhead Cleaning: No one wants a scummy showerhead! To clean it pour a half cup of baking soda and one cp of whit distilled vinegar into a plastic bag and tie it around your showerhead. Let the solution sit for about an hour after the bubbling has stopped. Finally remove the bag and run the shower for a few minutes. This process will help remove water stains and scummy build up from the shower.
4. Drain Cleaning: Vinegar is a great tool to cleaning a smelly drain! Create a solution by pouring in one cup of baking soda and one cup of hot white distilled vinegar. Let that solution sit in there for five minutes and then run hot water down the drain. This should not only clean your drain but also get rid of any smells!
