Whether it’s to spice up a salad, soften meat or decrease your sodium intake by replacing salt, we’re all familiar with vinegar in the kitchen. Many people are even familiar with its more obscure uses. For example, pickling pickles or jalapenos is a fun rainy day activity. Doing it yourself ensures an all-natural outcome, along with a slightly lower bill at the grocery store.
What you’re probably less familiar with is vinegar’s usefulness around the home. Distilled white vinegar can be used for deep cleans, yard work, laundry and even skincare. The possible applications are endless. It’s just vinegar, so it isn’t toxic. It also isn’t expensive.
What if you hate the smell? No problem! You can mask the strong smell of vinegar with essential oils or citrus peels without impacting its usefulness around the house. Give it a try and let us know what you think.
