With Vinegar to a Shiny Home

BY Bc. Veronika Krejsová (Součková)

Do you have a closet full of cleaning products at home? Do you always wonder about their price? We have a simple solution for you, to save space in your closet and money in your wallet as well. Clean with vinegar!

Vinegar is an excellent and natural cleaning agent for the bathroom, kitchen, and other areas. In our guide, you will find everything you need to create your own universal cleaning solution without chemicals. So let’s get started!

We already know that chemical cleaning products are nothing for nature or your home. There are several ways to replace them. Buying natural cleaning products may seem like the easiest solution at first. However, have you ever thought of simply making one yourself?

Most of us probably have the best cleaning product at home already, and you may not even know it. The best helper for cleaning will be vinegar. Either classic fermented vinegar or you can use white vinegar, which isn’t dyed with caramel and contains a higher concentration of acetic acid.

If you would like to make the cleaning as easy as possible, mix vinegar with water (the higher the amount of the vinegar, the stronger the cleaning power), get a washcloth or a sponge and your bathtub or basin will be squeaky clean in a minute. Vinegar also works amazingly for cleaning kitchen sinks or mirrors.

In the case that you need to clean worse dirt, baking soda or lemon acid will greatly increase the cleaning power of the vinegar. This will help you clean oil spots or limescale.

Make your own all-purpose cleaning product with us. You can reach for it at any time – you can clean a bathroom or a kitchen with it, without having to be worried about the chemicals you are using, for instance, in the sink where you clean your dishes or even toys for children.

All-purpose cleaning product:

100 ml of water

400 ml white vinegar

Other possible (not necessary) ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp of detergent (or other dish soap) – for better degreasing
  • 10 drops of essential oil* (e.g. lavender, which is fantastic for sanitising or citruses to make your bathroom smell amazing)

Mix, pour into a sprayer and try it out!

* I certainly add a lot of the oil into 1/2 litre of the cleaning product, because I personally feel like the smell of essential oils isn’t too noticeable in the product. What I might rather recommend instead to save the oil is to mix just water and vinegar and add the oil directly to a cleaned surface. For example, two drops should be enough for a bathtub, and it will give a lovely scent to the entire bathroom.

GS tip: Years of practice have shown that it is really good to simply use regular vinegar and a tablespoon of dishwashing liquid. It degreases nicely and removes limescale. It’s good to ventilate when cleaning, but don’t worry, fresh air will only enhance the beauty of the cleaning.
