Vinegar - The Wonder Remedy
By Camille Rhoades

I love it! I know, I know, those are strong words, but it is true! I use it for everything. My husband thinks we should own stock. Who wouldn’t love a product that can do it all? I know you are wondering if I could really be going on like this about vinegar. Could it really be that great? I am here to tell you that it is!

Vinegar is that big bottle of smelly stuff we all keep tucked in a dark cupboard somewhere. You know the one. For most of us it just comes out for a few specific occasions, but here is the scoop…..It can do 100s of wonderful things around your house!!! You can easily find long, detailed lists of uses online, but here is a little sample of why this is a kitchen “MUST HAVE” in my home!!!


  • Salad Dressing, Pickles, etc.
  • Keeps eggs from cracking when boiling by adding 2 Tablespoons to water.
  • Stop mold on cheese by wrapping in a vinegar soaked cloth.
  • Make a better chocolate cake by adding a teaspoon of Vinegar.
  • Perk up wilted vegetables. Soak in 2 cups water, 1 Tablespoon Vinegar.
  • Tenderize meat by soaking overnight or rub on both sides and let sit 2 hours.
  • Add to water when boiling vegetables to retain color.


  • Cuts grease and freshens dishes when washing them
  • Wipe oven to prevent grease build up.
  • Cleans and disinfects wood cutting boards, counters, the refrigerator, microwave, etc. Wipe with full strength vinegar.
  • Deodorizes the kitchen drain. Pour a cup down the drain once a week. Let stand 30 minutes and then flush with cold water.
  • Cleans windows.
  • Cleans stainless steel, copper pots and chrome.
  • Cleans grout.
  • Cleans your washing machine and dishwasher. Add vinegar and run through a regular cycle to dissolve detergent residues.
  • Treat pet stains quickly after they are left to remove stain and odor.


  • Cleans your iron. Put equal amounts of vinegar and water into water holder. Put on the steam setting and let set 5 minutes. Cool and drain.
  • Cleans calcium deposits, lime, and scum. Great for humidifiers, tubs and wash basins.
  • Unclog a drain with baking soda and vinegar, per last week's issue.
  • Film that accumulates in your bathtub can be removed by soaking and scrubbing with Vinegar.


  • Stain Remover (pre
  • soak).
  • Removes perspiration odors and stains.
  • Hang clothes that smell of smoke above a bathtub full of hot water and a Cup of Vinegar to steam.
  • Use instead of fabric softener when you wash your clothes.
  • If you buy a piece of clothing or fabric that you think will bleed, set the colors in fabric. Add 1 cup white vinegar to 1 gallon of water. Soak fabric in this solution until the fabric stops bleeding.


  • Like baking soda it will also remove residue left by shampoo from hair, as well as help control dandruff.
  • Cleans Eye Glasses.


  • Flower last longer when fed with 2 tablespoons vinegar and 1 teaspoon sugar.
  • If you have alkaline soil and are trying to grow rhododendrons, azaleas or other acid loving plants, add to water before watering.

    Pest Control

  • Put it in a spray bottle and use it as an insecticide. Used in large amounts it also deters animals.
  • Deters dogs from scratching ears by applying it on their bodies.


  • Sunburns rub lightly to relieve burn. (My family loves this use!)
  • For dry, Itchy Skin add to bath water.
  • Apply to bee strings to relieve itching.
  • Apply to burns for pain relief.

    I hope you will find this “Kitchen Remedy” to be a remedy you can use throughout your home.
