Did you know if you boil one-quart water and add two tablespoons salt and five tablespoons vinegar, while still hot, carefully pour mixture directly onto weeds between cracks on sidewalks and driveway, you have an inexpensive way of killing weeds?

Did you know you may be able to stop a troop of ants from marching into your house if you can find the points of entry and wipe areas with undiluted vinegar? Spray vinegar on thresholds, near sinks or near appliances where ants are gathering.

Did you know cats can wreak havoc on your garden by using it as a litter box? Soak wads of newspaper with vinegar and scatter them in areas where cats have been.

Did you know you can combat slugs by filling a spray bottle with half vinegar and half water? Search out slugs at night and kill them by squirting them directly with solution.

Did you know if your tent develops mildew, clean problem areas by wiping them with vinegar and letting the tent dry in the sun?

Did you know you can discourage your cats from walking on, sleeping on or scratching certain items in your home, lightly sprinkle items with vinegar? The smell will keep cats away.

Did you know you can minimize soap residue after a dog’s shampoo by adding vinegar to the rinse water? Rinse again with plain water.

Did you know if your dog has had a tussle with a skunk, minimize the odor by rinsing his coat with undiluted vinegar? Be sure to keep vinegar out of the dog’s eyes during this process. Some skunk smell may remain, but it will be kept under control as it gradually wears off.
