I Love Vinegar!!!!!

Alright, I might call myself vinegar obsessed at this point.  I use it everywhere, for everything.  I learned some new uses recently, and wanted to highlight some of my favorite new ideas.  You can read the entire list here.   I haven't tried any of these new suggestions yet, but I would love to hear if any of them have worked for you!  I'm definitely trying out the frost barrier this winter!

*  Kill grass on walks and driveways.  Pour full strength on unwanted grass.

*  Kill weeds. Spray full strength on growth until plants have starved.

*  Eliminate animal urine stains from carpet. Blot up urine with a soft cloth, flush several times with lukewarm water, then apply a mixture of equal parts vinegar and cool water. Blot up, rinse, and let dry.

*  Keep car windows frost free. Coat the windows the night before with a solution of three parts vinegar to one part water.

*  Take 1 cup of vinegar and warm water into a large glass and use to rinse your hair after you shampoo. Vinegar adds highlights to brunette hair, restores the acid mantel, and removes soap film and sebum oil.

*  Unclog a drain. Pour a handful of baking soda down the drain and add 1/2 cup of vinegar.  Rinse with hot water.

*  Clean and deodorize the garbage disposal by making vinegar ice cubes and feed them down the disposal.  After grinding, run cold water through.

*  Corrosion may be removed from shower heads or faucets by soaking them in diluted distilled vinegar overnight. This may be easily accomplished by saturating a terry cloth towel in vinegar and wrapping it around the shower head or faucet.

*  Remove decals or bumper stickers by soaking a cloth in Vinegar and cover the decal or bumper sticker for several minutes until the vinegar soaks in. The decals and bumper stickers should peel off easily.

*  Stubborn rings resulting from wet glasses being placed on wood furniture may be removed by rubbing with a mixture of equal parts of distilled vinegar and olive oil. Rub with the grain and polish for the best results.
