Excellent cleaner

Here are some ways to clean your house with vinegar:

If you are going to clean your pots and pans, and even your floor, you can make your own homemade cleaner. Mix baking soda, vinegar and liquid detergent together to create a thick and creamy paste texture. This mixture will allow you to clean and scrub difficult areas, and your pots and pans as well.

If you want to create a cleaning solution to clean your tiles, glass and ceramics just mix equal parts vinegar and water. You can use this solution on carpet stains by soaking up the stained area. Spray a mixture that has vinegar and water on the affected area and leave it for 2 or 4 minutes. Carefully dab the affected are with a towel. Repeat the procedure until you see the desired effect.

Undiluted white vinegar can also be used when getting rid of mold, dustmildew in the house. As you can see, vinegar has many uses. The only thing you cannot clean with vinegar is marble. Because the acidity level of vinegar is high, it can tarnish its color and thus vinegar is not safe for marbles use.

Hope this will really be helpful to all.

Thank you for the good advice. I had heard of something like this but didn't know the formula.

Vinegar works great on stainless steel as well. You can also use it as a mild acid rinse for carpets.

Vinegar is a great cleaner, but do be aware that not all surfaces can take the acid.

As noted in another thread, grout's another one, in addition to marble, that should not be cleaned with vinegar. That can make the situation a little dicey if you have employees and tell them to use vinegar on certain floors. Odds are great that they'll pick one cleaner to use on all floors at a job site.

I'll guess that's why few companies use vinegar for cleaning. Ditto for ammonia, a nice neutral that's not worth the hazard if you use bleach products and have little training or high turnover with workers.
