What about cleaning with vinegar?

Why cleaning with vinegar?

If you want to explore alternatives to commercial cleaning products as part of your green living strategies, vinegar has a lot to offer.

There are lots of vinegar uses. It's really easy and safe to use, it's cheap to buy, (most people will already have some in the house) and you can get going with it as a cleaning agent in moments!

Read on for tips on how to use it.

How do you use vinegar for cleaning?

Cider vinegar for cleaning - or drinking Vinegar is good for polishing surfaces and removing grease. It is often included in window cleaning sprays. But the truth is, most of the time you don’t really need all the other ingredients in the spray! Many of them are quite toxic for the environment and toxic for you.

For example, you can wash windows with simple household washing up liquid to remove the worst of the dirt. Then, when the windows are dry, or nearly dry, polish them with a rag with a little vinegar. A spray bottle is useful for this, so you can recycle the commercial one you were using previously. Just wash it out thoroughly and then fill it with vinegar, diluted 50:50 or more.

For an even better method of cleaning windows and for more detailed info on how to use vinegar for cleaning, please see below.

What type of vinegar is best?

Cleaning with white vinegar is ideal. You can use more expensive ones such as cider vinegar but there isn’t any extra benefit, except that is more likely to be organically produced, which is better for the environment.

You can also use any brown vinegar such as brown malt vinegar but it may stain certain surfaces, so test a small area first.

Vinegar can also be a great help in promoting health, because of its cleansing and toning properties. Some people even use a vinegar diet to improve their health and to promote weight loss.

Cleaning with vinegar:

But vinegar smells!

Doesn’t it smell?

Yes, it does smell a little but the smell soon goes and it’s not unpleasant, especially when it is diluted. Dilute it at least 50:50 so that the smell is less intense.

There are no lingering, artificial smells left after you finish cleaning. Some artificial scents in many household cleaning products are particularly harmful for both us and the environment.

In fact, vinegar is good for removing lingering bad odours and can be used to freshen rooms and clean drains. Use it diluted as a deodoriser on clothes too, for example to freshen up garments that have picked up tobacco smells. Wipe down the item with a solution of vinegar and water on a clean damp cloth and leave the it to air for a couple of hours.
