Although I have not posted in a few days (my apologies!), I feel like this post is appropriate for a Sunday since a lot of us clean on the weekends. It will hopefully be informative, as well as offer an all natural, healthy way to substitute for those harsh chemicals. Today, I will chat about Heinz Distilled White Vinegar (5% Acidity) and Bragg's Raw~Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar (With the 'Mother').
HEINZ VINEGAR USES:
Fabric Softener- 1/2 cup of white vinegar in the rinse cycle or in the fabric softener compartment for a natural and healthy way to keep your clothes soft and static free. (I have very sensitive skin and find that fabric softeners are a harsh chemical on my skin yet I love when my clothes ares soft and free of static, so this trick is perfect!)
Stain Remover- Within 24 hours of a pop, coffee or sweat stain, spray or dab full concentrate white vinegar on stains before laundering.
Tub and Shower Magic- Mix 12 oz Blue Dawn Liquid Dish Soap and 12 oz White Vinegar (More or less but always equal parts) in a spray bottle and shake to incorporate. Spray, scrub and lightly rinse for a clean shine! No toxic chemicals!! :)
Need Buttermilk? No problem!- Add 1 Tablespoon of vinegar to ! cup of milk and let stand 5 minutes. (I like this trick because you can use skim milk for a lower fat option).
BRAGG'S APPLE CIDER VINEGAR: (With the 'Mother')
Health Drink- This can be consumed up to 3 times a day. 1-2 teaspoons of Bragg's in 8 oz Filtered Water plus 1-2 teaspoons Organic Honey, Stevia, or Agave Nectar. (This is a great pick-me up drink).
Smoothie- Make your normal smoothie and add 1-2 teaspoons of Bragg's but make sure to cut it with 1-2 teaspoons of your favorite all natural sweetener.
Salad Dressing- Use in place anytime a salad dressing calls for vinegar.
Health Benefits- Rich in enzymes & potassium, supports a healthy immune system, helps control weight, promotes digestion & ph balance, helps soothe dry throats, helps remove body sludge toxins, helps maintain healthy skin and relieves muscle pain from exercise.
