Vinegar Really Does Cleans Your Kitchen

Vinegar. Many people usually have this laying around the house. Not just for cooking, white vinegar is a fantastic tool to have for many different applications in the kitchen. Not only can you use it to clean butcher block boards and make your stainless steel shine, but you can also use it as an excellent rinse aid for your dishwasher. After a good scrubbing, sometimes you need a bit more assistance. White vinegar is an inexpensive yet feasible way to get items around your kitchen cleaning, without all of the harsh chemicals. My favorite kind of cleaner!

Here are some of the many ways you can clean your kitchen with vinegar. It’s also cost effective and efficient too.

  • Polish Silver: By combining vinegar with salt, baking soda and boiling water, you can effectively remove any tarnish on your silver.
  • Stainless Steel: If you are looking to make your stainless-steel appliances really shine, vinegar has a trick up it’s sleeve. A little oil and vinegar can go a long way to restoring the shine to both your small and large stainless appliances.
  • The Dishwasher: When your dishwasher starts omitting an odor, or boasts a collection of hard water deposit, vinegar is here to save the day. Run an empty cycle using a few cups of vinegar in the dishwasher and voila, no more odor or hard water deposits.
  • The Coffee Maker: When your coffee maker has been in use for a while, it can start to collect stains and mineral deposits. Giving the carafe a rinse with white vinegar is a great way to banish the build up.
  • Butcher Block: Having a clean butcher block cutting board or countertop is important to the quality of the foods you are cooking. Some elbow grease and white vinegar can help to sanitize and freshen them up rather quickly.
  • Stained Food Storage:  After storing Monday night’s spaghetti leftovers, you are often left with an orange food storage container. Give your containers a face lift by soaking them in vinegar to remove the stains.
  • Dishes: If you find that your dishes don’t exactly rinse clean in the dishwasher, add a little vinegar as a rinse aid. This will help to leave you dishes shining and clean looking.


Elbow Grease and Determination

There are many different uses for vinegar in a kitchen. Just make sure to take note of your surfaces. Vinegar is not recommended to be used on granite or marble counter tops or hardwood floors so it’s important to keep that in mind. The next time you find your stainless steel lacking the shine it once had, or your dishes looking a little less clean, give vinegar a chance to do the job. You won’t be disappointed.

Amazing what a little extra elbow grease and some vinegar will do, huh? What are some of the ways you clean with vinegar in your kitchen?
