A PYP Best Blog: Homemade Shower Cleaner and the many uses for vinegar............

So for today’s PYP’s Best Blog post I am combining 2 of our best blogs into one post!  I recently needed an amazing shower cleaner and I was reminded of this post that we did several years ago.  Since one of the ingredients is vinegar I also wanted to re-share a post we did on the many uses of vinegar, bringing 2 of PYP’s Best Blog posts together!

Everybody’s making this stuff. Are you? Simply put 1 C white vinegar in the microwave until warm and mix with 1 C Dawn Dish. Put this into a spray bottle and you have an AMAZING shower cleaner. For tough soap scum, you can spray and leave overnight. This stuff really works!!
.
PS – You can actually use ANY amount of vinegar and an equal part of Dawn. Also, you don’t need to reheat this every time you use it. You just heat it once to get the ingredients to combine well.

The many uses of vinegar:

There are so many ways that you can use vinegar in your home. It is very inexpensive and not harmful at all to children or the environment. It is a go-to staple in my home. I have a gallon in my kitchen and laundry room at all times. It is also something that we keep in our food storage. I use it for cooking, cleaning, canning, and even in my dog’s water bowl!!

FOOD
When you can’t get the last bit of mayonnaise or salad dressing out of the jar, try dribbling a little of your favorite vinegar into it, put the cap on tightly and shake well. You’ll be amazed at how much you’ve been wasting.

Try soaking fish in vinegar and water before cooking it. It will be sweeter, more tender and hold its shape better. When boiling or poaching fish, a tablespoon of vinegar added to the water will keep it from crumbling so easily.

Cake icing can be prevented from becoming sugary if a little vinegar is added to the ingredients before cooking. The same is true when making homemade candy.

When boiling an egg and it’s cracked, a little vinegar in the water will keep the white from running out.

A teaspoon of white distilled or cider vinegar added to the water in which you boil potatoes will keep them nice and white. You can keep peeled potatoes from turning dark by covering them with water and adding 2 teaspoons of vinegar.

Freshen up slightly wilted vegetables by soaking them in cold water and vinegar.

Add 2 tablespoons white distilled vinegar to 1 pint water and use to wash fresh fruits and vegetables, then rinse thoroughly. Research has shown that vinegar helps kill bacteria on fruits and vegetables.

Before frying doughnuts, add ½ teaspoon of vinegar to hot oil to prevent doughnuts soaking up extra grease. Use caution when adding the vinegar to the hot oil.

Perk up a can of soup, gravy or sauce with a teaspoon of your favorite specialty vinegar. It adds flavor and taster fresher.

As a tenderizer for tough meat or game, make a marinade in the proportion of half a cup of your favorite vinegar to a cup of heated liquid, such as bouillon; or for steak, you may prefer to a mix of vinegar and oil, rubbed in well and allowed to stand for two hours.

Remove fruit or berry stains from your hands by cleaning them with vinegar.

For fluffier and great tasting rice, add a teaspoon of white distilled vinegar to the boiling water before adding rice. Rice will be easier to spoon and less sticky.

CLEANING
It is easy to take out the heavy stale smell often found in lunch boxes. Dampen a piece of fresh bread with white distilled vinegar and leave it in the lunch box overnight.

Get rid of cooking smells:
Let simmer a small pot of vinegar and water solution.

Soak a paper towel with 1-2 Tablespoons of white distilled vinegar. Wipe mixing bowl and beaters or whisk with the vinegar-soaked paper towel, then dry with a cloth or paper towel prior to whipping egg whites.

Bathtub film can be removed by wiping with white distilled vinegar and then with soda. Rinse clean with water.

Rub down shower doors with a sponge soaked in white distilled vinegar to remove soap residue.

Corrosion may be removed from shower heads or faucets by soaking them in diluted white distilled vinegar overnight. This may be easily accomplished by saturating a terry cloth towel in vinegar and wrapping it around the shower head or faucet.

Stubborn stains can be removed from the toilet by spraying them with white distilled vinegar and brushing vigorously. The bowl may be deodorized by adding 3 cups of white distilled vinegar. Allow it to remain for a half hour, then flush.

PETS
A teaspoon of white distilled vinegar for each quart bowl of drinking water helps keep your pet free of fleas and ticks. The ratio of one teaspoon to one quart is for a forty-pound animal.

Test the color fastness of the carpet with white distilled vinegar in an inconspicuous place. Then sprinkle distilled vinegar over the fresh pet accident. Wait a few minutes and sponge from the center outward. Blot up with a dry cloth. This procedure may need to be repeated for stubborn stains.
