Did you know you can tackle mineral deposits around your sink’s faucets by squirting them with undiluted vinegar? Let the vinegar sit for 15 minutes or longer and then scrub away deposits with an old toothbrush.

Did you know you can wipe your kitchen countertops with undiluted vinegar once a day to shine them and keep your kitchen smelling fresh?

Did you know you can loosen soap scum on shower doors and walls by spraying them with vinegar? Let dry, then respray to dampen. Wipe clean. If needed, reapply and let sit for several hours. Then dampen and wipe clean again.

Did you know shower curtains or liners can become dulled by soap film or plagued with mildew? Keep vinegar in a spray bottle near shower and squirt shower curtains once or twice a week. No need to rinse.

Did you know you can pour vinegar into the toilet and let sit 30 minutes? Next sprinkle baking soda on a toilet bowl brush and scour any remaining stained areas. Flush.

Did you know you can mop your ceramic tile with a mixture of one cup vinegar and one-gallon warm water to make ceramic tile floors sparkle?

Did you know you may scrub a linoleum floor with a mixture of one gallon of water and one cup of vinegar? If the floor needs a polish after this just use club soda.

Did you know you can add a cup of plain vinegar to a gallon bucket of water and mop your wooden floor? Do not saturate. No need to rinse. This will keep floors shiny and remove any greasy buildup.

Did you know that before painting a metal item, you should wipe the surface with a solution of one-part vinegar to five parts water? This cleans the surface and makes peeling less likely.

Did you know when applying paint of any kind you should keep small dishes of vinegar around the room to absorb paint odors? Keep dishes out for a few days and add new vinegar each day.
