White vinegar is such an effective cleaner. Here are 11+ powerful uses

Vinegar is a staple ingredient in many dishes, but it’s also a surprisingly useful tool for using around your home. It can be used in natural, homemade cleaners, and it may just eliminate the need to buy other household cleaning items from the store.

We’ll take you through some of the most effective and powerful uses for this common ingredient that we bet you already have in your pantry. Save money and keep your home chemical-free with these simple and useful DIY creations that’ll make you wish you knew these uses for white vinegar sooner!

1. DIY fabric softener

Here’s a super simple recipe for all natural fabric softener using:
1/4 cup rubbing alcohol
3 cups white vinegar
20 drops of essential oil

Combined with rubbing alcohol (or vodka) and the essential oil of your choice (we think lavender would be amazing!), white vinegar makes a potent and chemical-free fabric softener that’ll help you “go green” and save you some cash!

2. Orange vinegar cleaner

White vinegar makes a powerful cleaner, but let’s just say that the smell isn’t the most pleasant. Infuse it with orange peels, however, and your nostrils are in for a treat (and your home is in for a deep cleaning!). Find the recipe at Bren Did. In addition to the tutorial, she also lays out how to dilute the mixture for different purposes — from a bathroom cleaner to a multipurpose mix.

3. Natural weed killer

Forget using harsh chemicals on your lawn or in your garden! Double the Batch shares a super simple, three-ingredient recipe that kills pesky weeds and allows your flowers or grass to grow naturally. All you need is white vinegar, Epsom salt and dish soap.

4. Air deodorizer

If you love a fresh-smelling home but don’t want to keep shelling out cash for brand names like Glade or Febreze, check out the tutorial here. At just 15 cents a bottle, this simple mixture might just become a staple in your house.​

5. Front-loading washing machine freshener

Front-loading washing machines have benefits such as saving electricity and allowing you to unload clothes easier. But they can be notoriously stinky and leave your clothes smelling like mildew. If this sounds familiar, see what Dr. Karen S. Lee says about using white vinegar to rid your washer of smells for good. She has step by step instructions that’ll solve all your laundry problems!
