Multipurpose uses for Vinegar
Vinegar is an excellent multipurpose cleaner for the kitchen, bathroom, laundry, and even outdoors.
Setting color in clothes: Add 1 cup white vinegar to a container of warm water and soak the fabric for 30 minutes to an hour.
Suede stains: Blot the stain with vinegar on a cloth after first testing in an inconspicuous place on the fabric. The acids in the vinegar are excellent for removing stains. Set the nap with a suede brush or a toothbrush while it’s wet and after it dries.
Steam irons: Mix a solution of 50 percent vinegar and 50 percent water and pour in the water reservoir. Let the iron steam for 10 to 15 minutes, then turn it off and let it cool for an hour. Turn it back on and heat until it’s steaming. Finally, turn it off and pour out the water. Swab out the steam vents on the plate with a pipe cleaner and iron over an old cloth or towel to remove any remaining water deposits. Vinegar can also be used to clean a scorched iron. Make a paste of vinegar and salt and rub on the scorched surface; the vinegar is an acid and the salt is an abrasive that combine to remove the scorched material.
Perspiration stains: Heat white vinegar until it’s warm, pour in a spray bottle and spray on the perspiration stains. Sprinkle the stained area with borax and spray again with vinegar. Work the mixture in, using thumbs. Let it set for approximately 15 minutes and launder as usual.
