I recently saw a blogger comment that her cleaning lady used vinegar to clean her floors, but it made her house smell like a pickle factory.
I use vinegar to clean my floors, surfaces, and windows, and I don’t have that problem. If you’re using vinegar and the smell remains after the surface dries, you’re using too much or doing something wrong.
To mop my floors, I use ¼ cup vinegar for 3 gallons of hot water. I also add about 10 drops of essential lemon oil.
To wash surfaces, I use about ¼ cup vinegar in a quart-sized spray bottle, then fill that with water.
To wash windows, I use equal parts vinegar and water and squeegie it off of the surface.
Vinegar is an amazing product. It’s made from fermented alcohol, and serves as powerful disinfectant and cleaner. According to Care2.com, a straight 5 percent solution of vinegar—the kind you can buy in the supermarket—kills 99 percent of bacteria, 82 percent of mold, and 80 percent of germs (viruses).
I’m so grateful for your visit, today.
