Here’s how to use cleaning vinegar to clean especially on the kitchen :
Definitely skip the toxic chemicals where you store your food. Instead, try surface cleaning your fridge with white vinegar. Wipe up spills with a 50-50 vinegar-water mix. You can even keep a bottle of the mixture stored in your fridge!
Choose a scrubbing brush small enough to get inside the drain and disposal. Pour vinegar onto the brush and sprinkle it with baking soda. Using this combination with a bit of scrubbing will quickly remove built-up crud and odours from your drains.
3. Cutting boards
Vinegar is great for disinfecting. The acid in it helps combat nasty bugs such as E.coli, Salmonella and Staphylococcus. After washing your board, disinfect the board by giving it a wipe with full-strength, white vinegar. You can also deodorise the board by sprinkling bicarbonate of soda followed by a spray of white vinegar. Leave for ten minutes, whilst it foams up, then rinse off with a cloth.
It’s easy to clean a microwave with vinegar! Remove stubborn food stains by placing half a cup of vinegar and half a cup water in a glass bowl. Microwave it for two to three minutes, or until it boils. Don’t open the microwave – let it sit and steam for a few more minutes. You’ll then be able to wipe away buildup with ease!
5. Stained plastic containers
Clean plastic containers by coating them in vinegar and letting the sit for a few minutes before washing as usual.
Cleaning kitchen countertops with white vinegar is simple: Just spray it onto your surface, then wipe away with a warm, wet rag. However, avoid cleaning countertops with vinegar if you have a granite or marble surface.
