9 Surprising Ways to Use Vinegar at Home

7. Scale
If the toilet, bathtub, or washbasin have scale, you only have to spray the spots with vinegar. Let it work, and wipe the toilet, washing basin, or bathtub with a clean cloth. You can also use this on irons, shower heads, and faucets, but you do not have to wipe these. Spray, and leave the scale to slow crumble.

8. Kitchen
Vinegar is very versatile in the kitchen:
Clean the coffee machine and electric kettle with diluted vinegar to decalcify them once a month, and you can enjoy a nice cup of coffee or tea again. Do not forget to properly rinse both appliances afterwards. Also, you can make stainless-steel and silver kitchen appliances shiny again with vinegar. Make sure to mix it with salt. You can also use it to disinfect wooden trays and chopping boards.

To clean the microwave, you can place a saucer with water and a few drops of vinegar in the microwave and turn it on for +/- 30 sec. If the combi-microwave is done, you can wipe the inside with a cloth. Finally, you can also use it to unclog the sink. Pour a quarter cup of baking soda in the sink, followed by a cup of vinegar, and seal the drain properly. The reaction of these two substances unclogs the drain. If it does not work the first time, repeat the procedure!

9. Cleaning
Again: vinegar is one of the best and most versatile cleaning agents in the world and can be easily used in ‘regular’ householding. Diluted vinegar is ideal to clean the windows, wooden floors, fireplace, shower curtains, and wooden furniture (mixed with olive oil). It is also a perfect stain remover, also for stains in carpets, curtains, or anything else.
