I do that with baking soda.. I just put a half a cup of it in a cup, fill it with water and microwave it for like 2 minutes and let it sit for a bit.. works awesome!

Heat 1 part vinegar and 3 parts water in the microwave until it boils and the caked on gunk will wipe right off!

sorry.. yeah, I guess that I should perhaps break it down.. into different sections? I didn't really think too many ppl were reading it!
Well, to be honest, we are using vinegar and baking soda to basically clean EVERYTHING right now! straight it is an awesome disinfectant, basic cleaner, de-greaser, ect. add a few drops of EO and you can have anti-viral, ect.
Here is one of my favorite sites 1001 uses for vinegar!

Wow slow down...I am going to have a scroll of paper to wade through to find the tip i wanted. I like the cleaning ones, because organic/natural cleaners are so darned expensive. Which ones have you used successfully?

What fits your schedule better...exercising 1 hour a day or being dead 24hrs a day? lol

Remove cigarette odors from suits and coats. Ever been trapped in the same room with a smoker for a couple hours? Chances are your coat or suit jacket now smells like cigarettes. To eliminate the odor, fill a bathtub with the hottest water your water heater will produce and pour in one cup of vinegar. Hang your suit or coat on the shower curtain bar and close the bathroom door overnight. The smell should be gone by morning. Warning, lock the bathroom door, or avoid this tip altogether if you have small children as a filled tub presents a potential drowning hazard. I keep this tip handy on trips, and have used it to remove wrinkles from clothing after unpacking my suitcase.

Freshen up your garbage disposal. After a few weeks, garbage disposals start to smell a little like that old container of tuna fish as foods rot and bacteria grows. Instead of buying those expensive disposal deodorizing tablets, make your own at home. Mix equal parts vinegar and water and freeze in an old ice tray. Drop a few cubes in the disposal once a week and flush with cold water.

Removing mildew. We recently had some mildew build up in a hard-to-reach corner of our shower, and instead of using a costly commercial bleach cleaner, I had success with white vinegar. Simply apply a solution of equal parts vinegar and water to the mildew (for heavy build up you may need to try full strength vinegar). The nice thing about using vinegar is you don’t have the ventilation or skin irritant concerns you have when using commercial cleaners.

Clean trackball computer mouse. I use a Logitech TrackMan Wheel mouse at home and my lone complaint about the device is that over time dust and lint accumulates under the trackball and impedes its movement. Disconnect the mouse, remove the trackball and use a soft cloth dampened in a 50/50 vinegar-water solution to wipe off fingerprints, dust and accumulate grime from the trackball itself. Then use a cotton swab or Q-tip moistened in the same solution to clean out the little chamber the trackball is housed. Let parts dry about two hours before replacing the trackball and plugging the mouse back in.

Substitute for expensive rinse aids in dishwashers. I learned about this vinegar tip from Amy over at MomAdvice.com. Skip the Jet Dry and simply put some vinegar in the rinse aid compartment of your dishwasher. Dishes will come out “squeaky clean” and without streaks. If you are skeptical of this one, note the primary ingredient in commercial rinse aids is, what else, vinegar!

Just found some at frugaldad.com thought I would share!
Vinegar foot soak to remove dry skin. This was a new one for me, but one I learned while visiting my mom in the hospital recently. Nurses came in and asked if she wanted a vinegar foot soak. They poured up a 50/50 solution of vinegar and warm water, and dipped two bath towels in the vinegar solution. After wringing out the towels, they wrapped them around my mom’s feet and let them “soak” for about twenty minutes.
When they removed the towels and wiped her feet down with a fresh towel the dry skin practically fell off, leaving her skin smooth. I think she still deserves a nice pedicure when she leaves the hospital, but I was impressed by this frugal solution to dry skin.

For a healthier lower fat vinegarette try mixing:
1 part oil
2 parts vinegar (try yummy apple cider or other flavoured vinegars)
2 parts honey
I make bottles full and store in fridge.

then I add other flavours to the dressing to complement the salad - like garlic, spring onions, chopped chives or basil etc...yummy.

the only reason that I know of to add oil to the dressing is to get it to stick to the salad ingredients...so don't need heaps. the flavour comes from the vinegar and the herbs.

i love all your tips. I always buy the organic or natural products, but this is so much cheaper. I am going to print them all out and stick them up on the kitchen notice board.

What fits your schedule better...exercising 1 hour a day or being dead 24hrs a day? lol

Remove unwanted decals and bumper stickers by covering them with a cloth soaked in white distilled vinegar, or by repeatedly spraying them with full-strength white distilled vinegar. They should peel off in a couple of hours.

Give acid-loving plants like azaleas, rhododendrons, hydrangeas and gardenias a little help by watering them with a white distilled vinegar solution now and again. A cup of white distilled vinegar to a gallon of tap water is a good mixture.

the best thing I do with vinegar is for dishes... when I have a pan that has stuck on food, I just pour vinegar in and let sit... the pan comes totally clean!! I also put in the washer when washing diapers.

Homeschooling mom of 4

Dec 2008-Dec 2009 I faithfully maintained a 107-109... Unfortantely after Dec 2009, I let myself get back to a 115.6 - I'm back on track and am going to get back to my maintaining range again!

Ok, last one for now...
Give your dog a gleaming coat by spraying or rubbing with a solution of 1 cup white distilled vinegar to 1 quart water. As a bonus, you save the cost of an expensive shine product used on show animals. (Works even on a horse!)

Kill weeds and grass growing in unwanted places by pouring full-strength white distilled vinegar on them. This works especially well in crevices and cracks of walkways and driveways.
