To remove or set a crease, use a clean cloth to moisten the area with white vinegar and press with a iron. Put a 10% solution of white vinegar in your steam iron to help prevent wrinkles as you wear your cloths. A cup of white vinegar (or more depending upon wash size) added to laundry helps rid your cloths of stubborn odors. Also works on upholstery and carpet.

White vinegar (possibly apple cider vinegar as well, I haven't tried it) is great for dissolving hard water deposits.
Just let it soak on the object you want to clean for a little while and the hard water deposits wipe right off. For faucets I soak a paper towel with vinegar and wrap it around the faucet.
White vinegar When it comes to multi-use products, white vinegar is king. Here are just some of the ways vinegar can be used:
•Make up a 25% vinegar with 75% water mixture and use it to clean windows. •To remove limescale, wrap a paper towel soaked in hot vinegar around the base of taps, leave for an hour, then remove and rinse. (This should not be done to plated fixings, as it will ruin the finish.) •Strong vinegar also makes a good natural spray-on weed killer.
Instead of buying cleaner for your coffee maker or kettle. Use one cup of vinegar with eight cups of cold water on run it through your coffee maker, with the kettle add 1 cup of vinegar and 4 cups of water and plug it in. When the kettle boils and the coffee maker is done. Rinse with water 3 o4 times and your pots will be cleaned.
There are so many great uses for white vinegar and it is cheap too!
