Apple cider vinegar is a kitchen staple that comes with multiple fantastic health benefits. The best thing is – it has a ton of household, cooking, and beauty uses. It is a popular ingredient in several cleaning and detoxifying recipes as it includes several minerals and vitamins. The vinegar also stores polyphenols, which are potent antioxidants. 

Apple cider vinegar is an excellent home remedy. The uses of this vinegar include preserving food, washing hair, cleaning, and improving skin function. Though the uses of apple cider vinegar are countless, in this blog post, we will discuss how this product can help you in keeping your home clean. Let’s take a closer look:

Keep Your Home Clean with Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is a natural, cost-effective alternative to harsh chemical cleaning products. It delivers the same advantages as plain white vinegar with a more pleasant smell. Simply put, it is a biodegradable, non-toxic, easy-on-the-nose cleaning alternative. 

Here’s how this cleaning agent can help you with keeping your home clean and sparkling. You can use this versatile cleaning agent to give new life to your:

  1. Kitchen & Bathroom Countertops: Mix an equal amount of water and apple cider vinegar and apply this mixture on the countertops of your kitchen and bathroom. This solution can help you in saying goodbye to stains, grease, bacteria, and grime.

  2. Windows: Combine two parts water and one-part apple cider vinegar and apply this mixture on your windows to get rid of unsightly smudges and streaks.

  3. Window Blinds: The same solution that you used to clean your windows can be used to clean your window blinds as well. Simply apply it on blinds and wipe with a cloth.

  4. Carpets: Combine some apple cider vinegar with plain water and add it to the carpet steamer to clean stains. Besides that, you can make a 1:1 apple cider vinegar-water solution, spray it on your carpets, allow it to soak, and then vacuum. 

  5. Refrigerator: Mix both apple cider vinegar and water well (1:1 ratio) and use this solution to clean your refrigerator from top to bottom.

  6. Dishwasher: Insert one-quarter apple cider vinegar cup into the wash cycle of your dishwasher to clean and deodorize the kitchen appliance. It will also help you in removing stains and spots from your dishes, glasses, and coffee cups.

  7. Walls: Take a clean cloth, apply full-strength apple cider vinegar to it, and then wipe out your walls with the cloth. This method is useful for removing ink and dirt.

  8. Toilets: Forget the chemical bathroom cleaners available on the market. Use straight apple cider vinegar solution on the porcelain surface of your toilet to make it sparkle.

  9. Sinks: Fill your sink with hot water and put two cups of apple cider vinegar into it. Let this solution sit for around two to three hours to rid the surface of hard water stains. 

  10. Air: To deodorize and freshen your home, simply put some apple cider vinegar into a pan and simmer on the stove for approximately an hour. To eradicate intense odors from your indoors, like smoking, pour pure apple cider vinegar into small bowls and put them in areas with the strongest scents. 


These are some of the things that you can do with apple cider vinegar to improve your interior and overall quality of living. Believe it or not, apple cider vinegar – made with the fermented juice of pressed, fresh apples – is an excellent solution for cleaning, deodorizing, and freshening the interior of your home. So, visit your nearest store, get a huge bottle of apple cider vinegar, and get to work.
