DIY ideas for home, health, & life

I love vinegar. It has tons of uses and is very inexpensive-what more could you ask for?

Here is a list of a few things I use vinegar for:

  1. Natural fabric softener  that removes the musty smell from clothes and towels AND prevents yellowing (add 1 cup to a downy ball and place in the wash)
  2. Used to clean the toilet (simply pour in 2/3 cup, let sit for 15 minutes, scrub clean with brush)
  3. Use to clear clogged drains (pour baking soda and boiling water down the drain with vinegar-watch the drain unclog)
  4. To kill fleas in dogs (maybe other animals too but I only have a dog)
  5. I use apple cider vinegar as a facial toner (cut 3:1 with distilled water)
  6. They say you can drink a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar a day to help with acne-I did try this but I could not stomach the vinegar.

Here is a fabulous website listing even more (1001 to be exact) uses for vinegar. Check it out!

These are just a few I have tried. What’s your favorite use for vinegar?
