5 errors to not make with white vinegar.


White vinegar has become my cleaning ally for the whole house.

Not only the White vinegar is natural and non-toxic, but in addition it is super economical.

Not to mention the fact that it is a versatile product! You can use it to clean almost all.

However, even if white vinegar is a miracle product, it cannot be used for everything and anything…

There are things you shouldn’t clean with white vinegar. Here is 5 mistakes not to make with white household or food vinegar. Look :

1. Marble, granite and soapstone

Avoid contact between white vinegar and natural stones such as granite, marble and soapstone.

For what ? Because the acidity of white vinegar gradually attacks the stone and can cause marks.

As a result, over time, these natural stones can lose their shine.

Instead, use this trick.

2. Kitchen knives

If you want to keep your knives looking new and shiny, avoid contact with acidic things like white vinegar or lemon.

Indeed, the blade may tarnish, or even prick black if it is silver in particular.

Now you know why it’s not polite to cut your salad with your knife: because you’re exposing the blade to the dressing.

Instead, use dish soap and water.

3. Egg stain

The white vinegar causes the egg proteins to coagulate creating a sticky substance that is impossible to clean.

If you break an egg on the floor, avoid using white vinegar to clean it!

Instead, use a damp, soapy paper towel.

4. Iron

White vinegar can damage the internal workings of some irons.

It is therefore preferable to clean your iron with something else, especially with salt.

Instead, use this trick.

5. Wooden furniture and floors

It is not a good idea to clean wood with pure, undiluted white vinegar.

In addition to leaving traces of water, the acid in the white vinegar can gradually « nibble » the varnish and tarnish the wood.

The same is true for hardwood floors.

Instead, use this trick.

The good uses of white vinegar
