Vinegar uses in the living room

Vinegar is known for its all-purpose cleaning power and it’s one of the most useful things you should keep in your closet. Vinegar is a natural and powerful cleaning solution. Below are mentioned some of its uses in the living room.

–       Water marks on furniture

Wet glasses can leave water rings on your wood or leather furniture. To remove water stains on wood furniture, use a mixture of equal parts vinegar and olive oil and apply with a soft cloth. To get water rings off leather furniture, use a sponge soaked in white vinegar.

–       Carpet stains

Sprinkle baking soda (or cornstarch/soda mixture) to cover the stain, and then spray with vinegar and water on top. It will start bubbling. Wait for the mixture to absorb the stain. Let it dry and vacuum the powder.

–       Window blinds

Use a cotton glove to clean the window blinds. Moisten the fingers in a solution of vinegar and hot water. Slide your fingers across both sides of each slat.

–       Candle  wax

To remove candle wax on your wood furniture, soften the wax using a blow-dryer on its hottest setting. Then blot the stain and use vinegar-water solution to remove what’s left.

–       Stickers

To remove stickers, moisten them with vinegar. Wait several minutes before removing.

–       Windows

Use a mixture of half vinegar, half water to spray the windows. Wipe clean with newspapers.

–       Silver, copper, or brass

For polishing silver, copper, or brass dissolve 1 teaspoon salt in one cup vinegar. Add flour to create a paste and apply to the metal item. Wait a few minutes, then rinse and wipe with a soft cloth.
