    Use Vinegar as a Natural Cleaner to Kill Mold, Bacteria, and Germs

    I found this information on the internet quite some time ago and at the moment I cannot locate where this originated from. I am not claiming this as my own information.

    White distilled vinegar is a popular household cleanser, effective for killing most mold, bacteria, and germs due to its level of acidity. Cleaning with white distilled vinegar is a smart way to avoid using harsh chemicals. You’ll also be glad to know that it is environmentally friendly and very economical.

    This product costs just pennies per cup but really performs around the home! Wow, no chemicals means non-toxic to humans or animals if breathed in (or ingested) and as a bonus it offers all of these fabulous house cleaning results!

    I was going to narrow down this list: but I was so impressed by all of vinegar’s uses that I decided to list them all!
