I have never cleaned with white vinegar. I plan to try it soon.

Lisa, I learned about white vinegar as a cleaner years ago and my best use of it is in tile and granite floors, it's doesn't streak and keeps the grout clean too.

I have a lot of cleaning in my future. Thanks for the reminder to add white vinegar to my shopping list!

White vinegar has a lot of uses.  It works well cleaning windows mixed with window cleaner, and I have used it with distilled water to add water to a battery and keep the acidity balanced.

I clean with baking soda and vinegar all the time.  I hate chemicals in my house.

Lisa, I know my housekeeper uses a lot of white vinegar, and have gotten used to the smell.

I use vinegar and water to clean my microwave oven. It works great!

Posted by Sussie Sutton, David Tracy Real Estate for Buyers & Sellers (David Tracy Real Estate) almost 5 years ago

We have recommended customers experiencing slow or no draining dishwashers (from food or build up of powdered soap scum) to use vinegar with a hot water cycle or 2 (dish free) to help clear/clean the interior of the dishwasher as well as the pump and drain inlets and outlets. Great tip!
