I use vinegar to clean up in the kitchen, the bathroom, clean spots on the rug, etc. It's a great all purpose cleaner. You can mix it with water or use straight. It will kill germs and cut grease, shine fixtures and clean glass.
What a money saver. I keep a spray bottle in each bathroom to use on the bathroom floors to spray and wipe up. In the kitchen I use it every night to clean the splatter from my stove. It has saved me a bundle of money! (Non-toxic Cleaner)

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.
Some vinegar in your diet may improve your blood sugar Nobumasa Ogawa, Ph.D., of Tokyo University in Tokyo, discovered that the acetic acid inhibits the activity of several carbohydrate-digesting enzymes, when vinegar is present in the intestines, some sugars and starches temporarily pass through without being digested, so they have less of an impact on blood sugar. Just two teaspoons of vinegar, taken with a meal, may help you keep better blood glucose control. See more info...
The easiest way to get the vinegar is by using an oil and vinegar salad dressing, vinaigrette dressings drizzled over steamed veggies, or whole wheat bread dipped in Olive Oil and vinegar
