Apple cider vinegar is my favorite new DIY household product. Just as baking soda has a huge range of uses from personal self-care to household cleaning, apple cider vinegar can do pretty much anything–for your skin, your hair, your house, and even your pets.I learned about apple cider vinegar when I was researching ways to get rid of the fleas that had unfortunately begun cropping up in my apartment from my roommates’ two cats. Apple cider vinegar, apparently, when rubbed on the pet and added to the pet’s water, can greatly help repel the fleas from the animal. But there’s more to it, read the article below to know more.
1. Clean Your Counters
Apple cider vinegar is a great non-toxic alternative to other chemical cleaners. You can use it to clean any surface, from wood floors to the kitchen counter. The acid present in apple cider vinegar helps to kill bacteria, so mix together some water and apple cider vinegar for a squeaky clean home.
2. Kill Garden Weeds
Get rid of weeds using apple cider vinegar. The acetic acid present in the vinegar kills unwanted plants, and it is actually used by organic farmers for weed control. Pour the vinegar directly onto unwanted plants to halt their growth without killing the soil around them.
3. Get Rid Of Dandruff
Dandruff is caused by yeast and bacteria, so apple cider vinegar can help change the PH level of your scalp, which stops any growth. It can also help relieve any irritation or itchiness. Just mix apple cider vinegar with some water and use it to rinse your hair in the shower.
4. Ward Off Fleas
Fleas can be a nuisance. Thankfully, the Earth Clinic reports that you can use apple cider vinegar as a natural flea control for your furry family members. Simply dilute 50/50 with water and spray or gently rub onto your pets fur. Does your pet have sensitive skin? Be sure to consult with a vet before trying this trick.
5. Fight Odors
Whether it’s your breath, stinky feet, or even your armpits, apple cider vinegar can be used to help diminish a variety of odors because it kills off bacteria and restores the proper pH balance. Just mix the vinegar with some water and wipe down the smelly area.
