I was curious about what other household uses vinegar might have, not just in the kitchen and I was able to find a whole plethora. In fact I found so many that I think there might be a book in it! (I suspect it has been done before!)
So in no particular order:
- Makes a great breath freshener - add a couple of tablespoons of cider vinegar and 1 tsp of salt to a glass of warm water and rinse your mouth for about 30 seconds.
- Shine up shower doors or bathroom grouting - use about 100ml of white vinegar, 50g bicarbonate of soda and 4 litres of warm water. This helps to restore the colour of the grouting and helps to remove water spots from shower doors.
- Brighten colours when washing, by adding 100ml of white vinegar to the wash cycle.
- I have just been berry picking and a great way of getting rid of berry stains is to wipe your hands with undiluted white vinegar.
