Ways to Improve Your Luck

Whoever said, “You can attract more flies with honey than you can with vinegar” obviously didn’t know what we know today about the multi-faceted properties of a simple product like vinegar. From nutrition to medicinal and household uses, the uses of vinegar are virtually limitless.

Let’s consider a few of those uses here:

Condition Those Tresses

Imagine that! Say goodbye to all those expensive hair care products that line your bathroom shelf, and hello to one simple product that has the power to give you silky, shiny hair that is free from buildup. Apple cider vinegar is easily accessible and it works like a charm. Simply add a half a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar to a cup of water, pour over freshly shampooed hair, and rinse. Add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to the mixture to avoid smelling like an antipasto salad.

Weed Killer A few stray weeds that pop up in an otherwise perfectly manicured lawn, vegetable garden, or flower bed can drive a person batty. Weed killer can be both expensive and harmful to pets. Believe it or not, vinegar will actually kill your unwanted weeds without causing harm to Fido, Fluffy, or the other little creatures that live in your lawn, garden, or flower beds. In fact, vinegar made particularly for horticulture use contains 25% acetic acid, and is even stronger than store-bought vinegar.

Pit Stain Remover There is nothing more embarrassing than underarm perspiration stains, never mind what it costs to have those nasty things removed from your clothing! And if you use an antiperspirant containing aluminum you are even more likely to develop perspiration stains due to the chemical reaction that takes place between the salt in the sweat and the aluminum compounds in the deodorant. To remove perspiration stains from clothing, simply spray the area with white vinegar before washing, and the stain will disappear.

Heal a Sore Throat Another “Who knew?” remedy: Sipping or gargling some warm water mixed with a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar can soothe a sore throat. Add a tablespoon of honey (local and organic honey have the most health benefits) to this mixture to kick up both its effectiveness and taste!

Soak Sore Muscles Apple cider vinegar can actually remove the lactic acid (you know, the stuff that makes you so sore that you don’t ever want to exercise again) that builds up in overworked muscles. Simply mix a few tablespoons of vinegar into a cup of water, dip a washcloth into the mixture, and apply to affected area for 20 minutes.
