White Vinegar Tips

-Clean the deposits and water lines in aquariums and fish bowls
  Wipe them down with white distilled vinegar and then rinse. For hard stains soak overnight.

-Use as an antiseptic on cuts or scrapes

-Remove old stickers on cars
 Soak a cloth in white distilled vinegar and cover the sticker. They should peel off in a couple of hours.

What do you use white distilled vinegar for?


  1. I mop with it!

    And I clean walls with a mixture of it, ammonia, and baking soda and water.

  2. It's great for cleaning anything really! The instructions for my coffee maker said to run a pot through with water & a touch of vinegar every so often to clean the brown-ness off.

  3. I LOVE white distilled vinegar! (side note, also LOVE your blog!!! found you through One Pretty Thing for your corner bookmark and haven't been able to tear myself away!!! I have already made one for my husband since his second semester of returning to college started last Tuesday...I will share photos on my blog hopefully tomorrow if my little one will allow me the free time!) I use white vinegar to help make cleaning the microwave easier (put some in a bowl and microwave till boiling and allow it to sit until the wee one gives me time to scrub it - makes ANYthing wipe off like butter! Also use it to clean the drains. Equal parts water and vinegar to boil and pour in a drain you've filled with baking soda - TONS better than drain cleaner!

    Thank you so much for the great tips and crafts and ...I haven't even gotten to the recipes yet!!!...wonderful blog Dee Dee!!!!


  4. This sounds really weird, but works and I've used it for years. Use Vinegar on a sunburn! Gross, right?! Don't worry, the smell goes away when it dries.

    For smaller areas use a cotton ball and dab it on and let dry. For big areas, put a cup or two in cool bath water and soak for a few minutes.

    It stops the burn and keeps you from peeling!
