Have you ever looked for something for ages in every single nook, cranny, and space, and soon realised the answer is right in front of you? It happens to me more often than I’d like to admit. For some reason, we want to make things in life far more complicated than they have to be. But as I get older and hopefully wiser, I begin to understand that the simpler solution usually means the best.   

Take vinegar, for example. We use it to enhance the flavour of our food and dye Easter eggs, but do you know vinegar has hundreds of fantastic uses you probably never heard of? Not only that, but we probably have at least two different kinds on our shelves right now, and vinegar remains one of the most affordable ingredients in the grocery store along with being environmentally friendly.  

Here are 9 Amazing Uses for Vinegar that will give you an easy and economical solution for so many things for you and your home. Use in your kitchen, bathroom, car, and garden. Simply fantastic!

General Cleaning

Mix a solution of half vinegar and half water. Use to clean your bathroom (bathtub, shower, toilet, shower door), kitchen (sink, refrigerator, floors, appliances), or anything else that needs a wipe down. A simple, environmentally, and economical solution!  

Clean Your Computer

Mix together a solution of ½ vinegar and ½ water. Use a cloth or cotton swab and dampen lightly (be sure not to use a spray bottle as the liquid could get into the circuit and electronic areas damaging your computer). Start wiping, and you’ll have a clean computer in no time!  

Trap Fruit Flies

Pour some apple cider vinegar in a jar and add a drop or two of washing up liquid. Make sure the solution is deep enough for the fruit flies to drown. Roll a piece of paper into a funnel and place in the jar, taping it so it doesn’t move. The flies will be trapped in the funnel, and you’ll have a fruit-fly-free kitchen!
