Our foray into cleaning with vinegar has been great, so I thought I’d share some of the cool things I’ve learned:

  1. Vinegar is as old as dirt. Not really, but vinegar has been a part of human life for 10,000 years.
  2. Hippocrates used apple cider vinegar for its many healing properties.
  3. 1 cup of vinegar, 1 cup of water, and a squeeze of a lemon equals the best household cleaner I use.
  4. Vinegar is a great antibacterial agent, with a pH lower than 3 – organisms don’t stand a chance.
  5. Vinegar is incredibly versatile.
  6. Vinegar is cheap – about $1.25 for two liters.
  7. I can purchase vinegar just about anywhere.
  8. Vinegar has its own institute and its own book.
  9. I love a good fresh salad topped with a balsamic vinaigrette.
  10. The volcanic action of vinegar plus baking soda is simply a childhood classic.

Currently, there is an old Seventh Generation spray bottle filled with 1 part vinegar, 1 part water, and a little lemon waiting for use everywhere in this house! Vinegar is one easy answer for ways to make one’s home a little more green.
