* Vinegar I’ve found takes the boys’/men’s horrible summer sweat smell out of their shirts when washing. Just fill your machine’s softener dispenser with white vinegar (I use home brand – $1.05 for 2L). You may get a slight vinegar smell when you hang clothes out on the line but it does disperse over the line drying time. Now for me it’s just a matter of course; vinegar is also a disinfectant, so what can it hurt? No ill effects on any clothes so far. The hint I read for vinegar originally was more to do with keeping the pipes clean while washing as softener over time tends to clog it.
* Add 1 teaspoon of vinegar to your pancake mix for lighter pancakes.
* Add 1 tablespoon of vinegar to 1 cup of milk to sour it instead of buttermilk.
* Wipe down bench tops and glass.
There are many more uses but these are my favourites.
