Vinegar is so sweet.
Speaking of curdle, a bit of vinegar in milk gives you a cheap form of buttermilk for cooking and even does windows.
Use it in your laundry to remove stains and freshen cloths.
Pour it on your salad with olive oil for a tasty dressing. Mix balsamic vinegar with olive oil, roasted garlic, and sun dried tomatoes for a yummy bread dip.
They say if you add a bit to your dog's water bowl it helps stops mange and fleas. I've poured boiling vinegar in biting ant holes and enjoyed my yard for the summer.
And that's only the beginning. There are hundreds of uses from something so sour. That's why vinegar is so sweet.
I use vinegar for many purposes.
Did you know its a wonderful clarifier for your hair? That's right, it removes build up leaving your tresses soft ands supple while restoring PH balance. For best results and better highlights people with darker hair should use Apple Cider vinegar and people with lighter hair White vinegar.
While Vinegar makes your lips pucker, it is good for you to drink too. They say to downing a couple teaspoons with a glass of water fortifies your health. While I agree, I have a hard time drinking vinegar water. I find it easier to sip on the vinegar itself. Maybe that's a residual from my childhood bath times.
You see, I used to take my glass of vinegar so I could rinse my hair with it and have that nice silky sheen. But first I pretended that I was a rich woman leisurely relaxing with a glass of wine while I sipped the vinegar. Yep I drank vinegar.
And my skin was clearer for it.
Given the way my skin has gone all hormonal on me, perhaps I should start drinking more.
What are some ways you use vinegar?
