When looking around at items we can use for more than one purpose, vinegar ranks quite high up on the list. With a whole spree of uses, being able to make the most of what most see as a condiment is pretty useful. Useful in so many ways, vinegar is more than just something that you put on chips!
However, many people are probably quite unaware of how useful vinegar can be. The uses you can get out of one cheap bottle of vinegar from a supermarket is very impressive, and can go some way to helping you keep a clean, comfortable household. What, though, are some of the more impressive uses of your average bottle of vinegar?
One great use for vinegar is to use it to clean fruit and vegetables. Simply add two tablespoons of white vinegar into a pint of water, and then use this to wash down any fresh fruit and veg to get rid of anything that might be sticking to them. It’s a great way to get an extra-strong clean and to keep your fruit tasting as nice as it should.
Been out and about and found yourself riddled with bites from little insects like midges and mosquitos? Then get some cotton buds and dab some white vinegar onto the skin. This can help to soothe the sting of the bite and help to reduce the opportunity for it becoming (too) irritating. The sooner the better, as it can really keep the irritation down.
Another great use is that vinegar can be used to help make your nail polish last even longer. So long as you take the time to distill the vinegar or go out and get a bottle of the distilled stuff, this can work without too much issue. It’s a great choice for making sure that you can get the nail polish onto your nails and ensure that it lasts. Just wipe down your nails with a cotton ball and then apply the polish and boom! It can really add extra lifespan to your nail polish.
You can even use it to keep the vitality of your flowers nice and high. Add 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and 2 tablespoons of vinegar along with the vase water you add into the flower. Helps to keep them strong, fresh and ready for the long-term.
As you might know, but many don’t, vinegar is great for removing stains and getting your plates nice and shiny. Just add in 2 tablespoons of white vinegar in with the dish soap that you normally use and you will get a very impressive stain removal solution. Definitely, one that you should look to use moving forward!
