Did You Know Apple Cider Vinegar Is A Useful Gardening Tool? It's Genius!

If you're looking for a great cleaning solution, don't go dragging tons of bottled chemicals into your home. Also, don't spring for pricey special organic products. All you need to do is run to the store for a bottle of Apple Cider Vinegar.

Vinegar is an excellent cleaner for surfaces in your kitchen and bathroom, for plumbing fixtures, windows, mirrors or appliances. Vinegar cuts through grease, eats away at mineral deposits and sanitizes. It also leaves a streak-free shine that will rival any cleaner. All you have to do is mix equal parts of ACV and water and you're good to go.

Vinegar makes microwave cleaning a breeze. Put 1/2 cup of vinegar into the microwave and put it on high for 1 minutes. Let the vinegar stand in there for about 15 minutes so the fumes can work on those splatters and splashes. When you open the door you can use a rag to easily wipe away any gunk.

Soak your sponges in water with a couple of tablespoons of ACV after you've finished the dinner dishes. Fifteen minutes later, pull them out and wring them well. This will keep bacteria from accumulating in your sponge, and stop it from smelling like mildew.

You can even polish your wood furniture with ACV. Mix one cup of water with 2 tbsp. of vinegar and 1 tbsp. of olive oil in a jar and shake well. Then dip a rag in it and wipe down all your woodwork, or put it in a spray bottle and clean your hardwood floors.

Outside, ACV makes a great organic weed killer. Spray it on any unsightly stubborn plants that pop up through every crack - just don't spray it around your prized plants, or it will kill them too.
