Vinegar has a whole heap of uses, and you probably know some of them, such as cleaning… well, just about anything. Actually, I don’t know why Walmart even has a cleaning aisle that has anything other than giant bottles of the stuff.
I can personally attest to its ability to relieve sunburn pain. Let’s just say I spent a leetle too much time lounging on the beach during my honeymoon such that my newly minted husband had to run to the 7-11 for a jug of Heinz white to pour over me in the bathtub. I smelled like a salad, but at least I didn’t sting anymore.
Apparently, it can also cure hiccups, condition hair, and make your hosiery last longer.
But my favorite, most recent discovery about this particular fruit of the vine is a kitchen tip. If you are cooking something with a strong aroma that you just don’t want hanging around, pour a little bit (oh, say ½ a cup to a cup) in a bowl and set it out on the counter. The vinegar will absorb all the smells. And this I can attest to as well. It really works. No more lingering onions, garlic, or fish.
So put down the can of Lysol and leave a little vinegar sitting out. Just make sure no unsuspecting fool thinks it’s a glass of water waiting to be gulped.
