Versatile Vinegar

At the beginning of the year I made an orange-infused vinegar cleaner solution to use around the house.  I love it!  It cuts dirt, grime and grease and leaves a nice aroma after its use.  To investigate the uses of vinegar, I decided to poke around on the internet for a comprehensive site; click here.  It’s not fancy or flashy but lists in detail uses for vinegar in the garden, the home, pets, health, laundry, automotive, and cooking.  It also offers easy recipes to meet your needs.

Here’s fun video from Olivia Cleans Green on how to make a vinegar multi-purpose cleanser for your home.  Not sure if you’ll have more delight in watching her or in the fact that using vinegar to clean will reduce to toxic load at your homestead.

  • 1/2 cup distilled vinegar
  • 1/2 cup distilled water
  • 1/4 tsp dish detergent
  • 10 drops of an essential oil of your choice

Put all into a spray bottle, specifically in this order.  If you add the dish detergent first, you’ll have a new kind of party.  =)
