7 Homemade Vinegar Cleaning Recipes
1. Orange Cleaner
Save your orange peels and place them in a canning jar with white vinegar poured over them. In a few days, the orange essence will infuse into the vinegar and give you a fantastic-smelling homemade cleaning solution.
2. Floor Cleaner
Mix one cup each of white vinegar and baking soda, plus a tablespoon of homemade dish soap into 2 gallons of hot water. Mop your floors with this mix to keep them clean and shining.
3. Easy Glass Cleaner
Mix about ½ cup white vinegar with 2 cups of water and pour into a spray bottle for healthy homemade glass cleaner.
4. Tub & Tile Cleaner
1 2/3 cup baking soda + 2 tablespoons of white vinegar and ½ cup Castile soap and ½ cup water makes a great tub and tile cleaner.
5. Drain Cleaner
Stubborn drain? Don’t pour harsh chemicals into your sink. Instead pour in about ½ cup of baking soda, 1 cup of white vinegar and let it sit for about half an hour. Then pour very hot water (we’re talking boiling here) to blow out the clog.
6. Carpet Cleaner
½ cup each of white vinegar and water can be sprayed with a spray bottle onto carpet stains. Let it sit for a few minutes and then scrub it out with a brush. If necessary, use a bit of warm soap and water to get the vinegar smell out.
7. Shower Spray
2 cups water, 1 cup white vinegar and about 10 drops of Melaleuca or Lavender essential oils.
