Earth Month: Eco-tip #2 Vinegar is your (green) friend

Eco-Tip #2: Vinegar as a multi-purpose cleaner

Use vinegar for just about anything!

Why spend so much money on harmful, expensive chemical cleaning products when vinegar – which you probably already have

somewhere in your kitchen – will do the job?

The uses of vinegar are endless:

  • Clean and disinfect countertops
  • Clean carpet stains
  • Keep those pesky ants away
  • Clean windows and wood paneling
  • Remove strong odors

Vinegar is great for laundry, too. Put in 1/2 cup to make colors brighter and decrease the amount of lint produced at the end of the cycle.

Finally, our favorite green use of vinegar: drain cleaner. Don’t spend cash on those harmful chemical drain cleaners. Pour 1/2 cup of baking soda into your clogged drain, then 1/2 cup of vinegar and watch it fizz and bubble (fun, isn’t it?). Wait a few minutes and then rinse with hot water. Voila! Your drain should now be clear.
