The many uses of vinegar

Recently out of necessity I rediscovered a household staple, vinegar. It happened one day after opening a cabinet and discovering dreaded ants had taken over. What a mess, had to throw away open containers of food. I went online searching for a natural way to kill the ants and that's when I read that vinegar in a spray bottle kills them and keeps them from returning. It did work.

After that fiasco I decided to search for other uses for vinegar and found quite a few good ideas. For example, vinegar will get rid of those ugly mineral deposits from faucets, shower doors, sinks, bathtubs,put some in a drain to freshen the drain.

Vinegar is not only a good natural cleaner it's also a disinfectant.
It will get rid of smoky smells, by placing it in a bowl and leave  till odors are gone.
Use it to get rid of mildew stains.
It will shine, brass, copper and silver.
Removes sticky residue.
Cleans your coffee pot.
Will remove some carpet stains.
Removes water stains from wood tables.
Apple cider vinegar is a good diet aid.

Does all that for so little money, imagine how much money you can save by using this little miracle product.
