What to do with...




Good ol' reliable Vinegar.
You either love or hate it.

Here are some other ways to 
use it besides in your potato
salad.

1. Keep Flowers Alive

Add 2 Tbsp and 2 Tbsp
sugar to your water.
Change after a couple of
days--helps keep the 
flowers nourished.

2. Give Your hair a Boost

Mix 1 C distilled water and
and 1/4 c vinegar, pour over 
freshly washed hair. Let sit for
15-30 seconds, rinse with cool
water. This helps with product
buildup and adds shine to our
lovely locks.

3. Pull Up Candle Wax

To get rid of drips, saturate
a cloth with vinegar, then 
place over the spot and
apply light pressure for a
few minutes. The vinegar
will break down the residue
without harming the surface.

4. Buff Leather Furniture

For a hydrating conditioner,
shake together equal parts
vinegar and boiled linseed
oil. Dab onto a soft cloth 

and apply to leather in a 
circular motion. After 10 
minutes, rub away with a 
clean dry cloth.

5. For Those Who Want 
To Have Fun--An 
Experiment*

On a baking tray, place a 
tall clear glass.
Pour some baking soda in 
the glass.
Pour some vinegar and in
and watch what happens.
You can add food coloring 
if you are brave.

  3. I never knew that about using it for flowers or the candles. I don't have leather furniture, so I'll leave that one alone. Thanks for the tips!

      The tip you shared in your email was great too--adding orange peel to vinegar for a cleaner was
      super.
