7 Surprising Uses For Apple Cider Vinegar

First Use: Teeth Whitener

Commercial teeth whiteners can be very abrasive and damage the enamel on the teeth, but apple cider vinegar provides a safe, gentle alternative. Just use your finger to rub some on your teeth for about a minute, then rinse with water. The pH of the apple cider vinegar will help to gently remove stains.

Second Use: Removes Dandruff

Dandruff is more than just a nuisance - it's embarrassing! Salon sprays are costly, but with apple cider vinegar, your dandruff destroyer will cost only pennies per spray. Just mix equal parts (about 1/4 cup each) apple cider vinegar and water in a spray bottle. Spray onto your hair after shampoo, let it sit for 15 minutes and rinse. Use twice per week, and you should be flake free in no time.

Third Use: Unclog Drains

Here's where baking soda and vinegar work together. Mix 1/2 cup baking soda with 1 cup vinegar and pour into your drain for a volcano effect. More effective and way less harsh than the chemical cleaners.

Fourth Use: Eliminate Foor Odor

Make amazing foot deodorizer wipes by pouring one cup apple cider vinegar over baby wipes. (Thick single-use size paper towels will also work.) Soak the wipes overnight in the fridge, then store in a zip-lock bag to use as needed. The acids in the apple cider vinegar will alter the pH level of your skin, which fights off bacteria that cause smelly feet. In a pinch, these wipes also make great all-natural underarm deodorizers.

Fifth Use: Removing Candle Wax

Heat that pile of wax up with a hair dryer and soak up as much of it as you can with a rag. Then use a 1:1 mixture of vinegar and water to remove the rest.

Sixth Use: Clean Your Washing Machine

After de-gunking your shower curtain, give your washing machine a good cleaning with 2 cups of vinegar poured into the machine (minus any clothes) and running a full cycle.

Seventh Use: De-Wrinkling Clothes Without An Iron

Fill a spray bottle containing a 3:1 ratio of water to vinegar and spritz the wrinkles. Let the clothes hang dry.
