VINEGAR - NATURE'S MIRACLE
Vinegar is something that we all probably have in our home for cooking purposes. Vinegar has been used since ancient times and is an important element in European, Asian, and other traditional cuisines of the world. The word 'vinegar' derives from the Old French 'vin aidre', meaning 'sour wine'. But did you know that vinegar can be used for other purposes as well?
Vinegar is an acidic liquid processed from the fermentation of ethanol in a process that yields its key ingredient acetic acid also called ethanoic acid. Becuase of the chemical properties of vinegar there are numerous household uses for vinegar (we are referring to white vinegar only). Here are a few for you to try:
1). Laundry - add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of white vinegar to the rinse cycle of your next laundry load instead of fabric softner. Vinegar removes the soap residue from the clothing and leaves your clothes soft to the touch.
2). Dishwasher - add 1/4 cup of white vinegar to the rinse cycle of your dishwasher to remove water spots from your glasses, plates, and cutlery. If you have hard water don't hesitate to give this a try.
3). Coffee Pot - add 1/4 cup of white vinegar to a half a pot of water and run water through your coffee maker to remove coffee stains and build up. Make sure to rinse coffee maker a second time with plain water. You may be surprised at how much better your coffee tastes.
