Cleaning with White Wine Vinegar

One of my absolute favourite cleaning products is White Wine Vinegar it is a fantastic old school staple. The uses are endless from removing mould and mildew to keeping your towels soft and fluffy.  

White vinegar does have a smell but son’t worry it does disperse very quickly.

Window and Glass cleaning

I keep a spray bottle filled with half vinegar, half water then wipe clean windows and mirrors with a lint free cloth

Lime scale and hard water build up

Limescale and hard water build up can be a real pain to get off and many of the cleaning products on the market just don’t seem to work very well. 

Soak shower heads in a bag of White Wine Vinegar, if your shower head does not come off drench an old tea towel in white vinegar and wrap around the head .

Spray neat onto shower doors, draining boards and taps, leave for 15 minutes and then rinse away.

Carpet Stains

We all spill drinks or find marks on our carpet from time to time. White Wine Vinegar can really help at removing those unwanted stains.  Simply mix together water, washing up liquid and White Wine Vinegar and add to a spray bottle. 

Spray the marked area liberally the leave the solution to work for a good 5 minutes. Scrub in and then leave again and finally blot to remove the product using a white cloth or paper towel.

I always advise blotting with white as this way you can actually see if the stain is being removed.  Repeat the process if necessary and then rinse away using a damp wet cloth.

Descaling the Kettle

This is a monthly that needs adding onto your cleaning checklist.

Simply fill the kettle with half water and 30ml of White Wine Vinegar then leave to sit for 30 minutes.  Once the time is up boil the kettle, empty and rinse thoroughly.

This will keep limescale at bay and eliminates the need of using harsh chemicals.

Prevent Mildew in water areas

If you have any mildew patches in the bathroom, around the shower, bath, window or on the shower curtain then spray liberally with neat White Wine Vinegar  leave to sit for a while to allow the product to work and then rinse away.

Remove odours from kitchen sink

Another task to add onto your monthly cleaning list.

Pour down a scoop bicarbonate of Soda then add 20ml of White Wine Vinegar, the two will cause a chemical reaction with will free up any blockages can get rid of those nasty sink odours.

Clean and deodorise microwave

Using a microwave-safe bowl, fill with 1/2 cup of vinegar and 1 cup water.  Place in the microwave pop on a high heat for 5 minutes.

Let it sit in microwave while it cools. 

You can then easily wipe down inside of microwave and  lingering odours should disappear. 

Cleaning the fridge

Mix a gallon of warm water and 2 cups of White Wine Vinegar to wipe down inside of refrigerator, including shelves, walls, and packaging. 

Your refrigerator will be clean and smelling clean without harming any food with harsh chemicals.

Freshen up laundry

Add a capful of White Wine Vinegar into the machine if you feel your laundry is looking a little dull. Your colours will come out bolder and your whites whiter.

Grass stains

Make a mixture 20ml of white vinegar with 20ml of water. Apply the solution to the stain and blot with a clean cloth.

Repeat this process until you’ve removed as much green as possible, and then wash as usual.

Arm pit stains

A common stain which is so easy to remove using the power of white vinegar simply liberally spray under the arm of the garment, leave 15 minutes and then pop straight into the washing machine.

Cleaning your washing machine

Simply add two 20ml into the detergent compartment or directly to the drum and then run a hot cycle to freshen up your machine. 

Wash fruit and veg

Vinegar will help remove bacteria and pesticide residues from fruits and vegetables, fill a bowl with water and add in 20ml of white vinegar, leave to soak for 5 minutes, remove then rinse.

It is good to implement chemical free cleaning into your routine especially if you are like me and clean excessively. 

Don’t forget I also love cleaning with Lemons too and I have loads off fabulous lemon tips.

As always thank you for reading
