The vinegar and Dawn solution is fabulous. However, even better for cleaning soap scum on shower doors, floors, walls and bathtubs is vinegar, Dawn and cornstarch. Warm a cup or two of vinegar in the microwave. Stir in a tablespoon or two of Dawn. Pour into a clean, empty spray bottle. Add a tablespoon or two of cornstarch, replace sprayer tightly, and shake vigorously. Immediately spray areas needing to be cleaned, making sure to cover all surfaces with the spray. Let sit for 20-30 minutes. Rinse and wipe with a damp cloth and BE AMAZED!! No scrubbing is necessary. The cornstarch keeps the vinegar and Dawn adhered to the dirty surface so that they can do the work — not you! This has been a game changer for me! Do not use on marble or other porous stone, as the vinegar will etch it. Safe — and amazing! — on chrome.

My favorite vinegar trick is I keep a small spray bottle of vinegar in the shower and a dish sponge with the fillable handle in the shower. I fill the handle with half Dawn dish soap and half white vinegar. When the conditioner is in my hair, I shave and then I wipe down the shower doors, tub and walls with the sponge. I then rinse myself off and then rinse off the shower walls, tub and such. Before leaving the shower, I spray it with the vinegar spray. Vinegar kills mold spores.

Hi there, thanks for posting. I’m sure you know by now, but vinegar is cheapest at Costco. $3.54 for 2 huge bottles !! I’m also going to try sprinkling baking soda before I spray the cleaner in the bottom of the tub get a deep spring clean. Have you tried? Dawn and vinegar is the only cleaner I use in my house on. Have you found the perfect dishwasher, window cleaner, or laundry homemade cleaners yet? Thanks again

I call this the sink bomb because it’s just that– the BOMB!  Vinegar is amazing when it comes to cleaning sinks.  First, I sprkinkle some baking soda in the sink and then spray some vinegar and let it bubble.  The baking soda is a low-grit way to scrub the sink, and the vinegar a disinfectant.  Wipe off and rinse, your sink is now fresh and clean.  Next, if your garbage disposal is a bit stinky simply add a cup of vinegar and let it sit for about an hour.  No more s-t-i-n-k.

My mother was an avid user of vinegar for everything. She kept a small glass of 1/4 cup vinegar with 1 cup water flavored with honey on the cupboard all the time. She would just sip on it during the day. She drank it for her arthritis. She used it to clean under her arms to kill odor. If we had athletics feet, she would warm water, vinegar and salt on the stove and we would soak our feet in it for 20 to 30 minutes every night for a week. It would usually kill the fungus. When we were coming down with a cold, we would soak our feet in the warm water, vinegar & salt at nite. Amazing stuff. And she was doing this back in the 60’s.

Did you know that vinegar might be an even more effective safe cleanser for your refrigerator than baking soda? Use equal parts white vinegar and water to wash both the interior and exterior of your fridge, including the door gasket and the fronts of the vegetable and fruit bins. To prevent mildew growth, wash the inside walls and bin interiors with some full-strength vinegar on a cloth. Also use undiluted vinegar to wipe off accumulated dust and grime on top of your refrigerator. Of course, you’ll still want to put that box of baking soda inside your refrigerator to keep it smelling clean when you’re done.

1-I’ve been using vinegar to clean with for years! I discovered it by researching how to get that weird smell out of my towels. We had well water in our first house and the towels always smelled funky after washing them. I sprinkled baking soda into the washing machine, then added a cup of vinegar, let the bubbles get going, then added the towels, and washed as normal. There was never a problem with the colors and the towels smelled great! 2-I also use baking soda and vinegar on my kitchen sink. I sprinkle the baking soda, then spray the vinegar and water solution and let it sit for a few minutes at least. Then I use a lemon to scrub it! Yup, cut a lemon in half. Then slice the lemon horizontally and vertically once, down about an inch into the inside part of the fruit. Squeeze some juice out, press down and scrub. The rinds starts to fold back and you use the lemon as a scrubbie. When you’re done, rinse the sink and put the lemon down the disposal. Smells great!

Hi, I just found your site for the first time. Great post! I use vinegar or more often a citrus infused vinegar as my primary cleaner, but I do the same as you and use both vinegar and bicarb soda in my toilet. I keep meaning to try a bicarb paste on the grout in my shower…

We also have a terrible hard water problem with all kinds if colored scale in the toilets. Each bowl has it’s own oersonality- green lime scale in one, brown  rust in another. Tried everything- Lime-away, The Works, hours of pumice rubbing. Last week I drained as much water out of the bowl as I could, bought a gallon of white vinegar, and poured it in gently to fill above the highest lime or rust ring. Left it in over night. The next morning I used a ScotchBrite scrubby dish wand carefully marked for toilet bowl use so it doesn’t wind up in the sink. VOILA!!! If you have stains above the water line, place a tissue on the stain and spray w/ vinegar to keep it wet. Or let one edge touch the vinegar in tbe bowl so it continuously absorbs the liquid and stays wet over the lime scale like a poultice. Unbelievable how clean the bowls are! Throw out everything else, this really works.

I love finding new ways to clean with vinegar! Every few weeks or so I also use it to clean out my coffee maker. I put 1 part of vinegar to 1 part of water and run my coffee maker as usual. When my coffee maker is clean, I pour the solution into my tea kettle and boil the water to clean my kettle as well. Then I make a paste of baking soda, pour it down my kitchen sink and follow it up with the boiling vinegar. No more nasty smell! The same ratio can be used to spray post-shower to prevent mildew build-up. I also use it to clean my mirrors and windows (wiping with newspapers, of course).
