Here are a few of the ways I used vinegar today to clean and disinfect our home. All are easy.
I washed our lettuce in a large bowl with a couple of glugs of distilled white vinegar, water, and ice for about 20 minutes to remove bacteria and residual pesticide. I rinsed and drained in a strainer for a couple of minutes...
...then I gave them a sunbath on the patio.
There was the jar of lemon peels on the counter that had been soaking in vinegar for a couple of weeks.
I gave it a shake and a sniff...a heavenly scent ascended, so I decanted it through a strainer into a small canning jar, and discarded the peels in the compost bin. This is the first time I've made lemon peel vinegar. I use homemade orange peel vinegar to clean our oak floors, and that is what I'm going to do with the lemon vinegar this weekend.
...followed by the vinegar water from my lettuce bath. There is a satisfying bubbly reaction when vinegar and baking soda collide...bubbly and scrubbly -- all the way down the drain.
Nesting Place: It doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful.

Many Blessings to you.
