When we think about vinegar, the very first thing that comes to our mind is “salad.” But believe it or not, vinegar is more than just an everyday condiment. It offers plenty of health benefits and uses that most of us are not aware of. Heck, it can replace even the most expensive stuff you use at home.
Today, Elite Readers will present to you some of the most unbelievable uses of vinegar. From being a good beauty product alternative to daily cleaning ingredient, you will be surprised with its many uses. Check them out below!
#1. Kills Weeds
White vinegar, in particular, is capable of killing weeds and grass of any type. Just simply pour it directly onto the leaves. Soon enough, it will inhibit the growth.
#2. Makes Your Hair Silky
Why use those expensive hair products when you can always resort to vinegar? To achieve a smooth and silky hair, mix 1 part of vinegar and 2 parts of water. Spray it all over your hair and leave it for at least 10 minutes. Rinse afterwards.
#3. Neutralizes Cigarette Smoke Odors
The trick here is to pour vinegar into a small container or bowl. Place it in a location where you want to eliminate the cigarette smoke odor.
#4. Keep Nail Polish Longer
This one here is really interesting, as most women want to keep their nail polish as long as they can. Before you apply the first layer of the polish, dip your nails into half a cup of vinegar. Do this for 10 to 15 minutes. You will soon notice that the nail polish stays a bit longer.
#5. Leaves Your Bathroom Sparkling Clean
Keep in mind that vinegar has whitening powers and antibacterial properties. Hence it is a good alternative for cleaning products at home. You can certainly use this to clean your bathroom.
#6. Removes Stains From Carpets and Floors
It is about time to stop calling the carpet cleaners, as there is a way for you to do the job. Just apply vinegar on the affected area and add a little amount of detergent. Let it dry for a minute or two, and then rub with a brush. You can do the same with those floor stains.
#7. Removes Sweat Stains
We all hate seeing those sweat stains on our favorite clothes. They are not just cool, right? Well, no worries – vinegar is your best friend. Sprinkle a little amount of it on the affected area and leave it for either 10 or 15 minutes (depending on the stain). Rinse and see how gorgeous your shirt now looks.
#8. Fights Acne and Pimples
This one here, though, requires the use of apple cider vinegar. Just like a regular one, it is also great for salad dressing – and a lot of things. Among them is fighting acne and pimples. It is even capable of fighting infections and curing post-acne scars. All you have to do is dump a small amount of apple cider vinegar on a cotton and then rub it gently on the affected part.
#9. A Perfect Facial Toner
Oh, yes, this is so true! Just moisten a cotton ball with a mixture of 2 cups of water and 1 tablespoon of vinegar. Apply this on your dry face but be sure to avoid the eye area. Do this every night and remember not to rinse. Vinegar actually helps in balancing your skin’s natural pH levels, removing impurities, and stimulating your body’s blood circulation.
#10. Removes Age Spots
Vinegar is known to eliminate dead cells, thus keeping the skin fresh and young. A tablespoon of it (preferably apple cider vinegar) added to half a glass of water is enough to deliver the job.
#11. Cures Dandruff
Are you tired of using the same shampoo over and over again but without getting satisfactory results? Well, it is about time you use vinegar. Mix a cup of it with a quarter cup of water in a spray bottle. Spritz on your hair and wrap your head in a dry towel. Let the mixture stay for around 15 minutes before rinsing.
#12. Removes Bruise Marks
All you have to do is soak a piece of clean cotton in an undiluted apple cider vinegar. Apply it directly to the affected area, and let it stay there for an hour. Its anti-inflammatory properties are capable of soothing the injured skin. Apart from that, it improves your blood circulation and accelerates the overall healing process.
#13. Relieves Mosquito Bites
Contrary to popular belief, vinegar contains antiseptic, anti-itching, and antibacterial properties. All of these can help get rid itching and reduce swelling caused by mosquito bites.
