VINEGAR is a Cheap and Easy WEED KILLER
Some items are just indispensable in our cupboards and kitchens and vinegar (and baking soda) is one of those things. You have probably used vinegar to clean glass and for other tasks but did you also know that vinegar is a cheap and easy weed killer? As soon as you think about it, it makes sense. Vinegar is a very mild acid, and acids generally burn things. When you spill vinegar on to an open cut, it burns. It won’t hurt you, but it can pack a sting. Fortunately, that will also clean out your cut and help it to heal without infection, but you might not be thinking about that when it hits your cut. Vinegar can also be used to wash floors, clean glass and many other household activities. It is an all round useful substance to have in your home for its natural disinfectant capability. The upside is, too, that vinegar is relatively harmless. Some chemical cleaners could really hurt children or animals if they were exposed to them.
Vinegar is also cheap, and even the cheapest one is useful to kill weeds or clean counter tops. So you can buy the cheapest and know you will still get your money’s worth. Vinegar is even useful in baking. Red Velvet Cake has you add vinegar to the baking soda and buttermilk used in the recipe in order to increase the rise and lightness of that very special cake.Vinegar has so many uses around the house, and although you should test any surface where you are using a new product, vinegar is not likely to react with any of them. Still, it will clean as well as a commercial product. For example, the reason vinegar often works so well in the bathroom is that the acid eats the lime and calcium that can often be associated with water (especially hard water). Wipe your tub, faucets, walls, and glass with vinegar, leave it to sit a few minutes, and then wipe clean. You will be really astonished at how clean your bathroom is. If you don’t like the smell of vinegar, just add essence of lavender oil or other essential oil to the vinegar. The other nice thing about using vinegar to control weeds in your yard is that the vinegar does not harm other creatures like birds and helpful bugs. It does help to keep flies away—another beneficial affect of vinegar. But we’re talking about weeds, and yes, vinegar acts on them too.
