10 Problems You Didn’t Know You Could Solve with Vinegar


When it comes to household cleaning and other household tasks, there are few products that match the power of vinegar. It’s not only a great thing to have on-hand when cooking, it can also come in handy when it comes to the most difficult and frustrating cleaning jobs. Vinegar can do it all, from getting wrinkles out of clothing to making your cut flowers last longer in their vases.

Take a look at just some of our favorite ways that vinegar can swoop in and save the day:

1. Shine Your Shoes

Leather shoes aren’t quite as impressive if they’re dull and dingy. Get rid of grime and polish your kicks by rubbing your shoes with 1 cup of water and 1/3 cup of vinegar. Now your kicks look like they’re fresh from the store.

2. Streak-Free Windows

Oftentimes, using glass cleaners just results in even messier looking windows! Get clean AND streak-free glass by cleaning with this solution: a 50/50 mixture of vinegar and water. Add a few drops of lemon juice for a fresh smell for half the cost of pricey products.

Bonus Tip: Try using newspaper to clean the window rather than paper towel or cleaning rags. It sounds bizarre, but this helps to reduce streaks on glass surfaces.
