8 Ways Apple Cider Vinegar Can Be Used as Healthy Home Remedies

Sometimes, common things you keep in your pantry can have superpowers. While apple cider vinegar sounds yummy, it can also be a substitute for some (expensive) beauty treatments, dietary aids, household cleaners, and even health tonics.

Of course, apple cider vinegar is delicious on salads and can be a tangy ingredient in some drinks (if you’re looking for new beverages to try with this wonder-vinegar, EveryDayRoots.com has a great recipe). Let’s look at eight of the do-it-yourself uses of apple cider vinegar…

1. Make Household Cleaner

If you’re looking to scrub those tiles and kill nasty bacteria without that “chemical burn” smell from bleach or ammonia (don’t mix those two things), then apple cider vinegar might be the affordable cleaning assistant you’ve been looking for.

SFGate explains how to use this kind of vinegar to tackle your home’s hygiene. The site notes that apple cider vinegar might not be quite as powerful as bleach, but it lifts dirt and kills bacteria that can make you sick. SFGate suggests using a diluted mixture of 1-cup of ACV (which is how we’re going to refer to apple cider vinegar from here on) to 1-gallon of water to clean without a high risk to any surface damage from acidity.
