Vinegar as a cleaner
« on: July 13, 2017, 12:12:11 PM »
I normally hit my toilets and such with bleach, but I've been hearing a 50/50 vinegar solution does the jobs.  Only reason I'd even consider it is because I can't stand bleach fumes.

But does anyone know if this works, or is just another "holistic junk science" remedy, like those idiots that try and cure cancer with herbs or whatever?

My father-in-law owned a tile and remodeling business. They only used vinegar and water on their job sites.

vinegar is a great cleaner, especially for toilets because the acidity neutralizes the basic salts from urine. it's also good for shower walls and kitchen sinks for removing soap scum, as again, soap is basic. I also use vinegar on glass surfaces like my table and mirrors, as well as my car's windows.

throw some lemon juice into it to cut down the smell if you don't like the vinegar stink

My mom just came in to help with the windows in my house and she swears by vinegar and water for glass.
