9 Surprising Ways to Use Vinegar at Home

Many know baking soda, WD-40, and detergent to be perfect cleaning agents. For example, you can use them to clean your mattress or unclog the toilet. But did you know there was another useful agent like that, and which is not a cleaning agent per definition? You can already guess, it is vinegar. And no, I am not just talking about decalcifying your washing machine or electric kettle. Here, you can find 9 surprising ways to use vinegar inside and around the house…

1. Weeds
Vinegar is very potent stuff. It is even so strong that when sprayed on the weeds, the plant will not come back. Only exterminate the weeds in this way if there are no other plants or flowers near. You do not want your colourful plants to die in the garden. One option for the removal of weeds in between other plants could be the following: drip, spray, or spread the vinegar carefully over the leaves of the weeds. You obtain the best result when spraying on a dry and sunny day; it can take a while before the weed killer becomes effective. The sun accelerates the process.

2. Car
Vinegar can be used to clean windows and as an air refresher in the car. You can even add it to the window cleaning fluid to keep the windscreen shiny. Attention! Only proceed after consulting with your garage or when it is mentioned in the manual. Vinegar is sufficiently acidy to damage some motor components, so do not proceed if you are not 100% sure. Another option is to dilute vinegar with water, to keep the windows frost-free.

Maybe you already knew this tip, but I am sure number 3 will be new to you, so continue quickly.
