Cleaning Au Natural Part 2

Today is Part 2 of our Cleaning Au Natural Series and our household item is . . . Vinegar!

Here's how you can use it -

Dishwasher: Disinfect the interior of the machine by pouring 1/2 cup vinegar into the reservoir or place a small bowl filled with vinegar on the bottom rack and run an empty cycle.

Drains: Pour vinegar down the drain and flush with cold water after 30 minutes.

Glassware: For spotless hand-washed glasses, add 1 cup vinegar to the rinse water.

Moldy Walls: Spray vinegar on the affected areas, let sit. Rinse after 15 minutes and let dry thoroughly.

Showerheads: To combat mineral deposits, pour vinegar into a plastic bag and tie onto your showerhead so that it's immersed in the solution. Let it soak overnight and rinse.
