5 incredible uses of vinegar

The next time you are at a grocery store, consider picking a bottle of this pantry because its uses will wow you!

At its most basic level, vinegar is acetic acid that has been mixed with water, trace chemicals, and flavors. To bring it closer to home, it is simply fermented alcohol. To think it was likely unintentionally created a thousand years ago when someone’s attempt at making an alcoholic drink backfired!

While many of them are filled with ingredients such as herbs, spices, and fruits, apple cider and distilled white are the most common. These two types are also the best to go with when it comes to using vinegar for projects not related to cooking. So grab your bottle first before referring to these 5 unexpected uses of this pantry

Insect salve and repellent

A simple dab of vinegar on either an insect or a bug bite will help with the itch and sting. Additionally, it will help in disinfecting the area, reducing the risk of infections. However, be careful not to use any vinegar on raw skin. Apple cider also works as a good insect repellent. Just rub it all over your legs and arms or wherever the bees are swarming.

Getting rid of smoke odors

We have all had that one time when preparing popcorns did not really work for us, leading to a smoke-filled house. Well, vinegar is your plug for such messes. Placing either distilled white or apple vinegar in a bowl at various points of the house will help. Also, if you are uncomfortable with the smell of vinegar, consider adding a few drops of lavender oil (or any other) to it.

Cleaning Rex’s ears

If your dog’s ears are dirty or seem to be bothering them, mix four tablespoons of water and one tablespoon of distilled white vinegar and rub it in his or her ears using a clean rug. However, do not do this if there are any cuts or wounds.

Stops cracked eggs

Eggs often crack when dropped in a pot of boiling water, especially if they are coming straight from the fridge.  Adding two tablespoons of vinegar to the water before boiling will help prevent the cracks and also make the eggs easier to peel afterward.

Making your hair shine

This is an old-time trick that is still touted by many as a way to dissolve shampoo build-up while leaving your hair with a shine. Mix 1-2 tablespoons of white or apple vinegar with one jug of water and pour it over your head and massage it into your roots after you have shampooed. Rinse it very well to get rid of the smell. However, avoid using this rinse every time because after all, vinegar is still acidic.

Socialite Vera Sidika on Monday took to her social media to share with her fans that she has chosen to give birth to her baby in Kenya rather than in the United States of America(USA). She said that despite having a valid US Visa, she has chosen to stay in Kenya because this is where her family and loved ones are.

“I almost traveled to give birth in the USA. Since my 5 years Visa is valid. But this Covid-19 pandemic isn’t fun. Then again, we couldn’t handle the idea of being away from family and friends during my pregnancy for 4-6 months,” she wrote.

She went on to add that while pregnant, one needs all the love, and affection from friends and family on a regular basis. Traveling to a foreign country where everyone is super busy, working two or more jobs can be difficult for them to even have time for you and you will just end up alone.

“I made the right decision and I have enjoyed my entire pregnancy journey. Nothing beats home,” Said Vera.

She added that she feels the same way she felt before the pregnancy and the only thing that has changed is her belly getting bigger and there is a little human kicking non-stop.

 

“I can jump, run, I do everything as a normal non-pregnant person. I’m actually loving it. I can’t believe my bump will go away soon. All in all, God is God,” she wrote.
