When you read the list of chemicals on labels of disinfectant products, it's no wonder that more people are "going green" and instead reaching for vinegar as a cleaning agent. Not only is cleaning with vinegar completely safe, it's cost effective and environmentally friendly. Vinegar as a disinfectant can be used for a multitude of purposes.
Vinegar in history
Vinegar has been used as a disinfectant for centuries.
Cleaning with vinegar
Vinegar can be used all over the house. Thanks to its acidity, white vinegar is most commonly used in the kitchen and bathroom as an effective substance for killing germs, bacteria and mold.
Keep undiluted white vinegar in a spray bottle, and using a clean cloth for wiping, use it as a general disinfectant.
Use vinegar in the bathroom to disinfect the toilet bowl and seat. But the use of vinegar doesn't have to end there.
Vinegar around the house
Vinegar is not just for disinfecting; it has other uses, too.
You never need to buy a chemical disinfectant again. Once you start using vinegar, you'll see it works just as well.
