5. Refresh the FridgeiStock/JackFDid you know that vinegar might be an even more effective safe cleanser for your refrigerator than baking soda? Use equal parts white vinegar and water to wash both the interior and exterior of your fridge, including the door gasket and the fronts of the vegetable and fruit bins. To prevent mildew growth, wash the inside walls and bin interiors with some full-strength vinegar on a cloth. Also use undiluted vinegar to wipe off accumulated dust and grime on top of your refrigerator. Of course, you’ll still want to put that box of baking soda inside your refrigerator to keep it smelling clean when you’re done.

If you have soap scum in your tub or shower, this duo is your new best friend.  Add equal parts Dawn and vinegar to a spray bottle and shake gently to mix.  If you have really tough deposits, you can heat the vinegar in the microwave before mixing for a little extra power.  Spray all over the tub/shower and let it sit for a few minutes to a few hours, depending how yucky the target.  Since the spray is thicker, it clings to the walls and shower doors rather than running right down.  After it sits, scrub if you need to, but you’ll probably just be able to spray it off and have sparkly surfaces.  It’s a little stinky while it sits, but I much preferred the vinegar smell to the nasty chemical smell of Scrubbing Bubbles, and this worked a ton better!  Once you rinse, the leftover smell is more like Dawn than the vinegar.

Hi, I just found your site for the first time. Great post! I use vinegar or more often a citrus infused vinegar as my primary cleaner, but I do the same as you and use both vinegar and bicarb soda in my toilet. I keep meaning to try a bicarb paste on the grout in my shower…

Another great way to stay on top of water spots is to keep a spray bottle of white vinegar in the bathroom and just before brushing your teeth, going to the bathroom, etc. spray the bathroom fixtures down with vinegar and then when you are finished brushing your teeth, etc. rinse the fixtures with cold water and dry them off with the hand towel.

We also have a terrible hard water problem with all kinds if colored scale in the toilets. Each bowl has it’s own oersonality- green lime scale in one, brown  rust in another. Tried everything- Lime-away, The Works, hours of pumice rubbing. Last week I drained as much water out of the bowl as I could, bought a gallon of white vinegar, and poured it in gently to fill above the highest lime or rust ring. Left it in over night. The next morning I used a ScotchBrite scrubby dish wand carefully marked for toilet bowl use so it doesn’t wind up in the sink. VOILA!!! If you have stains above the water line, place a tissue on the stain and spray w/ vinegar to keep it wet. Or let one edge touch the vinegar in tbe bowl so it continuously absorbs the liquid and stays wet over the lime scale like a poultice. Unbelievable how clean the bowls are! Throw out everything else, this really works.

For general cleaning, like kitchen and bathroom counters, you can use a little Dawn with more vinegar.  You can play around with the proportions to see what works for you–more Dawn in the mix can lead to a little more sudsing, which can require a second wiping after cleaning.  If the vinegar smell is a little strong for your liking, you can dilute it with a little water too (although I found that the smell went away pretty quickly and it just smelled clean).

After you do the shower/tub, use what’s left to clean the toilets.  The thicker concentration will cling in the toilet bowl, and you can add more vinegar to clean the rest of the toilet.  Vinegar has some natural disinfecting properties too!

I have to admit, after a few weeks of using vinegar for cleaning around my home I was underwhelmed, and my husband was annoyed. He really detests the smell of vinegar and would be perfectly happy if I never used it at home again.

About once  a week, I sprinkle some baking soda around the inside of the toilet to coat, then dump a cup of undiluted white vinegar into the water. I use a reusable toilet brush to scrub and the chemical reaction of the baking soda and vinegar removes stains and any lingering smell. This also works externally (I use on the bottom of the toilet and the floor) to remove that “boy” smell from bathrooms.
