1. Brighten Laundry

It can be used to brighten colours and whites (it's also a great deodorizer-¬†removing that sweat smell). Just add ¬Ĺ cup to the washing machine with your laundry! Or if you had clothes that you can't seem to get the smell out of just let them sit in a 1:1 ratio of vinegar and water before washing!

2. Streak-less Window Cleaner

Vinegar substitute for chemical window cleaners and it helps that it is cheaper too!¬†¬†¬ľ cup Vinegar + 2 cups water + ¬Ĺ tsp OC dish soap. Our dish soaps come in so many great scents so your windows will smell and sparkle!

3. Weed Killer

Vinegar is a great weed killer, and it only takes 3 ingredients to make! 1 gallon of cleaning vinegar, 1 cup salt, and 1 tbsp. of OC dish soap. The vinegar changes the PH level of the soil and the dish soap removes the waxy coating on the leaves while the salt dries up the plant to kill it for good!

4. Clear Clogged Pipes

Clear those pipes of odors, soap scum, and grease that can coat pipes. It works especially great on shower drains and garbage disposals. Pour 4 cups of hot water down the drain. Add 1 cup of dry baking soda to the drain. Pour in 1 cup of cleaning vinegar. There will be bubbling, so cover the drain with a stopper to keep as much in the pipes as possible. When the bubbling stops, flush the drain with more hot water.

 5. Cloudy Wine Glasses

Soak them in the sink with some non-diluted vinegar for a few minutes and wash as normal. The vinegar should dissolve the minerals and give you sparkling wine glasses again!
