8 Ways to Clean with White Vinegar

Land of Clean

Land of Clean + White Vinegar = Love

The Plano and Frisco maids put their heads together and came up with some more great uses for white vinegar around the house. If you aren’t aware, the house cleaners at Land of Clean are a little obsessed with finding new uses for everyday items around the house. One of our all time favorite multiple-use and green household items is white vinegar. We keep a running list of uses for white vinegar. Below are 8 that Land of Clean has compiled so far:

Window Cleaner

Add 1/4 cup of white vinegar to a quart of water. Put the mixture into a clean spray bottle. Spray on windows and wipe off just like a store-bought window cleaner.

Clean Stains on Clothes

Don’t dilute the vinegar for this tip. Spray directly onto underarm stains on clothes and let stand for 15 to 30 minutes. This should help minimize odor and stains in this area.

Deodorize Pet Accidents

Is there urine on your carpet from a pet (or other source)? An easy way to neutralize the odor is to spray a diluted white vinegar solution directly onto the affected area on the carpet. Mix a solution that is 25 percent white vinegar and 75 percent water. After mopping up the accident site, spray or apply the mixture onto the carpet. Make sure you test first in an out of the way area of the carpet first.

Clean those Floors

White vinegar works great on vinyl floors. In a bucket, add 1/2 cup of white vinegar to a gallon of warm water. Grab a mop or rag and start cleaning.

 Toilet Cleaner

This method requires some borax in addition to white vinegar. For toilet stains, pour 1 cup of white vinegar over affected area followed by sprinkling 1 cup of borax. Allow to stand for at least 2 hours. After 2 hours, brush clean and then flush.

 Clean Dishes in the Sink

Plug up the sink as normal when cleaning dishes. Add dishwashing liquid as normal, but also add 2 to 3 teaspoons of white vinegar. This solution acts as a fantastic grease cutting tool for dishes, glasses and crystal.

Bug Repellant

As a natural bug repellant, white vinegar actually works. Apply some to the skin with a cotton ball. Bugs don’t like the taste and will stay away (most of the time).

Fabric Softener

During the final rinse cycle in the washing machine, add about 1/4 cup of white vinegar. The vinegar will act as a softening agent and also reduce lint on dark clothes when they are put in the dryer.
