44 things to do with vinegar

44 things to do with vinegar

Sure, it's good on fries, but that's not all vinegar can do. Here are tons of uses for this all-natural wonder liquid.

By Sarah Kramer and Tanya Barnard

1. Kill weeds. Spray full-strength on growth until weeds have starved.

2. Kill unwanted grass on walks and driveways.

3. Increase soil acidity. Use 1/2 cup of vinegar in 1 gallon of tap water for watering plants such as rhododendrons, gardenias, or azaleas.

4. Deter ants. Spray vinegar around doors, appliances, and along other areas where ants are.

5. Polish car chrome. Apply full-strength.

6. Remove skunk odour from a dog. Rub fur with full-strength vinegar and rinse.

7. Keep cats away. Sprinkle vinegar on areas you don't want the cat walking, sleeping, or scratching.

8. Keep dogs from scratching their ears. Use a clean, soft cloth dipped in vinegar diluted with water.

9. Floor cleaner. Mix 1 cup white vinegar with 2 gallons hot water.

10. Freshen wilted vegetables. Soak them in 2 cups of water and a tablespoon of vinegar.

11. Soothe a bee or jellyfish sting. Dot the irritation with vinegar to relieve itching.

12. Relieve sunburn. Lightly rub on white vinegar. You may have to reapply.

13. Condition hair. Add a tablespoon of vinegar to dissolve sticky residue left by shampoo.

14. Relieve dry and itchy skin. Add 2 tablespoons to bath water.

15. Fight dandruff. Mix 2 tablespoons each apple cider vinegar, water and flax or olive oil and massage into scalp, shampooing out after 15-20 minutes.

16. Soothe a sore throat. Pour a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water. Gargle, then swallow.

17. Treat sinus infections and chest colds. Add 1/4 cup or more of vinegar to a vaporizer.

18. Deodorize the kitchen drain. Pour a cup down the drain once a week. Let stand 30 minutes and then flush with cold water.

19. Eliminate onion odours. Rub on your fingers before and after slicing.

20. Clean and disinfect wood cutting boards. Wipe with full-strength vinegar.

21. Remove fruit stains from hands. Rub with vinegar.

22. Cut grease and odour on dishes. Add a tablespoon of vinegar to hot soapy water.

23. Clean a teapot. Boil a mixture of water and vinegar in the teapot. Wipe away the grime.

24. Freshen a lunchbox. Soak a piece of bread in vinegar and let it sit in the lunchbox overnight.

25. Clean the refrigerator. Wash with a solution of equal parts water and vinegar.

26. Unclog a drain. Pour a handful of baking soda down the drain, add 1/2 cup of vinegar, and close with plug for 20 seconds. Rinse with hot water.

27. Clean and deodorize jars. Rinse mayonnaise, peanut butter, and mustard jars with vinegar when empty.

28. Clean the dishwasher. Run a cup of vinegar through the whole cycle once a month to reduce soap buildup on the inner mechanisms and on glassware.

29. Clean stainless steel. Wipe with a vinegar-dampened cloth.

30. Remove stains from pots. Fill the pot with a solution of 3 tablespoons of vinegar to a pint of water. Boil until stain loosens and can be washed away.

31. Clean the microwave. Boil a solution of 1/4 cup vinegar and 1 cup of water in the microwave. Will loosen food particles from microwave walls and deodorize.

32. Dissolve rust from bolts and other metals. Soak in full-strength vinegar.

33. Eliminate cooking smells. Let simmer a small pot of vinegar and water solution.

34. Unclog steam iron. Pour equal amounts of vinegar and water into the iron's water chamber. Turn to steam and leave the iron on for 5 minutes in an upright position. Then unplug and allow to cool. Any loose particles should come out when you empty the water.

35. Clean a scorched iron plate. Heat equal parts vinegar and salt in a small pan. Rub solution on the cooled iron surface to remove dark or burned stains.

36. Remove lint from clothes. Add 1/2 cup of vinegar to the rinse cycle of the washing machine. This also helps to brighten fabric colours.

37. Freshen the washing machine. Pour 1 cup of vinegar in the machine and let it run through a regular cycle (no clothes added). Will dissolve soap residue.

38. Remove tough stains. Gently rub vinegar on the stains before placing in the washing machine.

39. Eliminate smoke odours from clothes. Add 1 cup of vinegar to a bathtub of hot water. Hang clothes above the steam.

40. Remove decals. Brush with a couple of coats of vinegar and allow to soak in before washing off.

41. Clean eyeglasses. Wipe each lens with a drop of vinegar.

42. Freshen cut flowers. Add 2 tablespoons of vinegar and 1 teaspoon of sugar for each litre of water.

43. Extinguish fires. Throw on grease fires to arrest flames.

44. Feel good. A teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water, with a bit of sweetener added for flavour, will give you an overall healthy feeling.

Merry Christmas from Bailey the Unknown Reindeer

Hi folks. Thank you for all your warm comments and here are some answers to your questions: I shot this video on VHS-C in my backyard, near Ward, Colorado (8,700' elevation) during a blizzard in the late 1990's; a local weatherman said it was the most measureable snow (if memory serves, it was 54" in 48 hours) from the least amount of moisture ever. Cheers to dogs, and to all those that love them! Please be well and Happy Holidays!!!

Twilight Movie T-Shirts & Gifts

Official Twilight Movie T-Shirts & Gifts and Official Fan-Designed Twilight Gear

Gear Up for Twilight!

Synopsis for Twilight
Warning! This synopsis contains spoilers

Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) has always been a bit different, never caring about or fitting in with the trendy girls at her Phoenix, Arizona high school. When her mother Renee (Sarah Clarke) remarries and decides to move with her new husband to Florida, and Bella decides to go live with her father, Charlie (Billy Burke), in the rainy little town of Forks, Washington, she doesn't expect anything to change. Then she meets the mysterious and dazzlingly beautiful Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), a boy unlike any she's ever met. Intelligent and witty, his piercing eyes see straight into her soul. Soon, Bella and Edward are swept up in a passionate and decidedly unorthodox romance. Edward can run faster than any cheetah, he can stop a moving car with his bare hands, and he hasn't aged since 1918. Most importantly, he's a vampire. Like all vampires, he's immortal. He doesn't drink human blood (they're vampire "vegetarians"), which is rare among the vampire population. Instead, they go on regular "hiking" trips, where they feed on prey such as grizzly bears and mountain lions. For Edward, Bella is the thing he has waited ninety years for - a soul mate. But the closer they get, the more Edward must struggle to resist the primal pull of her scent, which could send him into an uncontrollable frenzy. And what will they do when James (Cam Gigandet), Laurent (Edi Gathegi), and Victoria (Rachel Lefevre) come into town and James sets his sights on Bella? Will true love prevail when Edward is forced to save her life and conquer his thirst? The true question is, When you can live forever, what do you live for?

Gifting the Ungiftables

The holidays are a time of celebrating one another - but finding a thoughtful gift for everyone on your list can turn even the cheeriest merrymaker into the Grinch. We all have that person who seems impossible to shop for, whether it be your overly-friendly postman who’s waiting for his big break as a stand-up comedian and has a tendency to make off-color jokes on your front porch in front of company, or your brother’s annoying, airheaded girlfriend with the 5 snapping Pomeranians in matching sweaters and coordinated carrying satchels that she insists on bringing everywhere she goes.

And for those members of your shopping list, we offer you hope: you’re not alone. And you’re not out of ideas, you just haven’t found The Big Idea yet. But don’t worry, we can help.

Introducting: The Ungiftables!

The Ungiftables are a fearless group of gift recipients not for the faint of heart. But find them the right present and you go down as a gifting rock star.

Is your sister a vegan womens’ studies major on a macrobiotic diet who only wears organic clothing and refuses any mode of transport that involves gasoline? No problem.

Is Uncle Randy prone to wearing tinfoil hats, railing about 9-11 being an inside job and getting drunk off homemade wine that he knows hasn’t been tampered with by the Illuminati? Hey, we’ve got him covered.

So check out The Ungiftables to see whether your Ungiftable is represented. But if not, don’t fret: you’re sure to find something among the other 150 million+ products in the CafePress Marketplace. Another bonus: our presents won’t cost you an arm and a leg. (But if Cousin Sally the aspiring Beat Poet has a leg fetish with a particular penchant for skinny guys in black sock and shorts, we got her too.)

And if you’re hitting a road block and really can’t think of that perfect present for your son’s narcoleptic substitute teacher, let us help you by taking part in:

**THE UNGIFTABLE CHALLENGE 2008**

E-mail us a description of your Ungiftable, and we’ll get back to you with some ideas. Address is blog (at) cafpress (dot) com.

So shoot us a note - we’ll get right to work finding the perfect gift for your new neighbor who wasted no time in painting her house the brightest of tangerines, and bedecking her front yard by proudly setting up her extensive collection of garden gnomes around the huge, fanciful and slightly naughty water fountain of Michaelangelo’s David.

Charlie Brown T-Shirts & Gifts


Charlie Brown wins your heart with his losing ways. It always rains on his parade, his baseball game, and his life. He's an inveterate worrier who frets over trifles (but who's to say they're trifles?). Although he is concerned with the true meaning of life, his friends sometimes call him "blockhead." Other than his knack for putting himself down, there are few sharp edges of wit in his repertoire; usually he's the butt of the joke, not the joker. He can be spotted a mile away in his sweater with the zig zag trim, head down, hands in pocket, headed for Lucy's psychiatric booth. He is considerate, friendly and polite and we love him knowing that he'll never win a baseball game or the heart of the little red-haired girl, kick the football Lucy is holding or fly a kite successfully. His friends call him "wishy-washy," but his spirit will never give up in his quest to triumph over adversity.

Hero Dog 'Rebel' Dies After Saving Owner From Burning Home

PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad — A man whose dog rescued him from a house fire in Trinidad said the animal died after running back into the burning building.

Trinidad & Tobago Express newspaper quoted Anderson Marcano as saying that he woke up because the dog kept barking and tugging at his pants. Marcano said he smelled the smoke and was shocked to find his house on fire.

The story published Friday did not say why the dog ran back in. Marcano said no one else was inside the house at the time.

Marcano did not immediately return a call for comment.

He said firefighters on Wednesday found the body of his dog, "Rebel," as well as the remains of the family's pet parrot.

Two-legged Dog Dominic - Even More Amazing!

You may think dogs are four-legged friends, but this 10-year-old greyhound has two left feet. When Dominic was 5 months old, he got into an accident when he ran under a neighbor's car. The vet said Dominic would need to either have both legs amputated or be put to sleep, and his owner, Kay, chose to have the legs removed. "When he woke up from the surgery, they set him down on the floor and he ran to the waiting room where he left me last," Kay says.

Today, Dominic can do all normal canine activities. "He can do whatever he wants," Kay says. "He can run downstairs, jump on furniture, go in the cupboard and get his own treats."

This is extremely sad, yet made me laugh.

In Memory of Euthanized Dogs

Video By:
flamingosrock15 - This is a video that is dedicated to all dogs that have been euthanized. I hope you like it...

Reply By Me:

I'm gonna share this video on my blog. Sadly, this video could go on and on, on how many loving pets that had to be euthanized and so many will miss them and grieve till the day they die themselves.
My dog is over 10 years old, and he now has a skin infection and I thought it was cancer, and luckily it's NOT. He is now still alive, so this video touched my heart in more ways than one. Here is my love one:
