White Distilled Vinegar (WDV) (most often used for cleaning)

• Put in Dishwasher for clear glasses and to eliminate odors
• Get Bumper sticker residue off cars, various surfaces (undiluted)
• Weed killer (undiluted)
• Shines showers/shower doors
• Dilute WDV and run through coffee maker to clean
• Mix with milk to make buttermilk (works great in a pinch!)
• Vinegar + baking soda = great unclogging recipe (unfortunately have had to do this one often)
• Use it undiluted to get rid of mildew
• ½ c WDV + 2 tbsp baking soda + soaking silver for 2-3 hours = shiny silver! Great to clean other jewelry too!
• Wash yucky scissors with vinegar (not water, it’ll rust!) *Use this for kids scissors a lot!
