More Vinegar Please!

More great uses for our friend, Vinegar!

Outside:
After picking flowers, add two tablespoons of white vinegar plus three tablespoons of sugar per quart of warm water to the vase. It's ideal to have stems in three to four inches of water.

Got an ant problem? Use a spray bottle filled with a solution of equal parts vinegar and water around door jambs, window sills, water pipes, and foundation cracks.

Occasionally water plants with a mixture of two tablespoons white vinegar to one quart water. Azaleas love acidic soil.

Inside:
If you're in a room with cigarette smoke or paint fumes, leave a small bowl of white vinegar on the counter or table. The odor will dissipate.

To clean toilets: Pour in one cup of white vinegar, let it stand for five minutes, brush clean and flush.


Your body:
Got Dandruff? Believe it or not, vinegar can help! Pour a few tablespoons of vinegar on your hair and massage into your scalp. Wait 3 minutes, then rinse and wash hair like normal. Try this for a few days until you see results. Vinegar restores chemical balance to the skin.

Want softer skin? Add one-half cup of vinegar or so to warm bath water when bathing. Bonus, you get a cleaner bathtub with less work. I know I know you're probably thinking, "Eww, I don't want to smell like vinegar." Trust me you wont because it's such small amount. But when in doubt drop in some essential oils and your skin will be soft and smell great!

Smooth a little vinegar on cracked, dried skin to help it heal.

When summer time comes, and the inevitable sunburn happens to you or your friends, remember to apply undiluted vinegar to the burn. It will sooth and heal your skin quickly!
