Replace Chemicals with Vinegar at Home

January 4, 2017

 

You have probably come across a number of ways of reducing harmful chemicals from your day to day lives if you watch various TV programmes or are a conscious consumer.  Vinegar can replace most of our shop bought cleaners.  These few tips are not my own, but I or family have found to work well.

 

Descaling Kettle:

Add enough water to the kettle to cover limescale affected areas.

Bring kettle to boil.  Then turn off kettle from mains.

Add 1/4 of the amount of water equivalent of white vinegar.

Leave for an hour and watch the limescale fizz away.

Thoroughly wash/rinse the kettle.

Mix equal parts water and white vinegar in a spray bottle.

Spray solution on windows and clean with lint-free cloth.
