Going Green with Heinz Cleaning Vinegar #HeinzVinegar

When I think of vinegar, I think of salad dressing, spinach, coloring eggs, and baking cakes.  How about cleaning?  I have to admit that up until participating in this shop, I had no idea that Heinz Cleaning Vinegar existed.  So, you can imagine how excited I was to find it in our neighborhood Walmart.

I headed to Walmart with Frank and his kids.  It was time to get some costumes, as well as the Heinz Cleaning Vinegar.  In front of the store were the local Cub Scouts, selling popcorn.  We headed into the store and you could definitely feel Halloween in the air!  We were welcomed by colors of orange and black, as well as bags of candy and Halloween goodies.

I headed to the grocery section and thought I would start by looking in the baking aisle.  I don’t buy vinegar too often, so I wasn’t sure if this was the aisle I would find it.  I thought it might be by the oil, but no such luck.  The next aisle on my list to check was the salad dressing aisle and there it was – Heinz Cleaning Vinegar.  I couldn’t believe that such a big container of the Heinz Cleaning Vinegar was only $2.98!

We brought the Heinz Cleaning Vinegar and I read on the bottle the different ways to clean your home naturally.  I learned that you can clean hard water spots off of your shower doors and walls with a mixture of 50% vinegar, 50% water.  You combine the two in a spray bottle and spray down the area with hard water spots.  You’d be amazed at how easily the spots and hard water film comes off without having to scrub a lot.

Here are some other ways you can use vinegar to clean your home:

– Make Your Floors Shine – Combine one-half cup Heinz Cleaning Vinegar and one gallon of water to clean tile or linoleum.  For tough stains, apply undiluted Heinz Cleaning Vinegar directly on the stains.

Eliminate Bathroom Film – Remove bathtub and tile film build-up by wiping surfaces with Heinz Cleaning Vinegar.

Cut Dust and Grease – Keep exhaust fan grills, ceiling fan blades, and air conditioning grills grease and dust-free by wiping with Heinz Cleaning Vinegar.

Keep Coffee Tasting Great – Remove mineral deposits from your coffee pot by filling reservoir with Heinz Cleaning Vinegar and running through the brew cycle.  Rinse thoroughly with 2 cycles of water.

    It’s so funny that you posted this and I just read a “recipe” that my grandma had from 1962 about cleaning naturally with vinegar. When I lived overseas, I noticed that my dog had a bad allergy to the floor cleaners, so I started mopping the floor with vinegar, water, and some essential oil that may have been lemon (I don’t really remember). It cleaned our floors well and when we needed to remove grime, we added hydrogen peroxide (rather than using bleach).

    I can’t wait to read more of your content!!

  2. I love this vinegar…thanks or sharing your tips!!!
