How To

It's Earth Day! Clean Everything With Versatile Vinegar

Apr 22, 2015

Vinegar makes the ultimate go-to green cleaner for everything in your home - including the kitchen sink. Don't like the smell of traditional vinegar, but love how it cleans? The Laundress Scented Vinegar will leave your home clean and smelling like roses, eucalyptus, and bergamot, literally!

Here are 10 ways to clean everything in your home with The Laundress Scented Vinegar:

1. Wash Obstinate Odors from Fine Fabrics

Wondering how to remove odor from clothing? Erase persistent odors with these simple steps. First pretreat affected items by soaking them in a wash basin or sink filled with 1 capful of The Laundress Scented Vinegar and tepid water (water temperature differs depending on fabric type) or apply directly to the underarm or odor area before washing. Soak cottons and durable synthetics for at least 1 hour and silks and woolens for no longer than 30 minutes. Then run a wash cycle adding 1 cup of The Laundress Scented Vinegar. Follow with a regular wash cycle and the appropriate detergent.

2. Simmer Away Smells

Get rid of cooking smells by placing a small pot of ½ cup of The Laundress Scented Vinegar and water on your stovetop on low heat. Keep a small bowl of The Laundress Scented Vinegar on the counter to absorb odor.

3. Keep Your Fridge Fresh

Eliminate odors by placing 1 cup of The Laundress Scented Vinegar in a glass in the refrigerator for two days. Keep refreshing the vinegar if the problem persists.

4. Help Your Dishwasher Hit the Spots

Make spotty glassware gleam by adding ½ cup of The Laundress Scented Vinegar to the rinse aid dispenser. Alternatively, add 1 cup of The Laundress Scented Vinegar to your dish detergent and run a full cycle.

5. Break the Mold...and Kill the Bacteria

Remove and inhibit bacteria, mold, and yeast growth on cutting boards by applying The Laundress Scented Vinegar after each use. Do not rinse. Spray kitchen counter tops with The Laundress Scented Vinegar and wipe down with hot water and a clean cloth. This kills bacteria and keeps ants and bugs away.

6. Send Nasty Clogs Down the Drain

Clear and deodorize your drains by mixing 1/4 cup of The Laundress All-Purpose Bleach Alternative with 1 cup of Scented Vinegar. Pour down the drain and let it sit for 5 minutes. Then run hot water.

*Note: This is also great in half proportions for the garbage disposal.

7. Get a Greener Clean in the Bathroom

Apply The Laundress Scented Vinegar directly to the area with a cloth or sponge. We recommend mixing with All-Purpose Bleach Alternative to scrub clean tubs, tiles, toilets, and stained porcelain.

*Note: Use The Laundress Scrub Brush, of course!

8. Give Your Toilet the Full Flush

Clean and deodorize toilets by pouring 1 cup of The Laundress Scented Vinegar into the bowl. Let sit for at least a half an hour and then flush.

9. Get High Visibility Blinds and Walls that Wow

Wipe down dirt on walls and blinds with equal parts The Laundress Scented Vinegar and water. Use a clean sponge or The Laundress Lint-Free Cleaning Cloth for best results.

10. Wipe Pergo Floors Clean

Pergo floors are best cleaned with vinegar versus any other product, including floor cleaners, all-purpose cleaners, and wax, as they can all leave a film. Mix ¼ cup of The Laundress Scented Vinegar with 1 gallon of water and mop to a high shine.
