that’s just a little thing that jer and i do. heh. we’re geeky like that.
we add “dot com” to the end of things sometimes….. take for example the other day. jeremy opened the fridge. chuckled a bit and closed the door. i said, “what’s so funny?!?!” he gives me a funny look and says, “why my fridge stinks dot com” hahahahah very funny, right? yeah.
i try to clean my fridge regularly, but sometimes it does get away on me. especially in these summer months full of fresh and abundant produce….someone please tell me you know what i am talking about…. puh-lease. ???
but i digress….this post is actually about vinegar and the love i have for it, not my dirty appliances.
so, being a mom, and ever concerned with the welfare of my family, i recently decided to get rid of all my regular cleaners, which are full of toxic things. i was using spray cleaner to clean counters, baby seats, tables, etc…
you know how those
grubby cute little fingers get all OVER the place, well, so…the cleaner was being used FREQUENTLY…
so, i got rid of that stuff, and replaced it with straight white vinegar in spray bottles. I.AM.IN.LOVE.WITH.IT. yes.. it cleans like a charm, while disinfecting! and the greatest thing about it is that the kids can help you clean. heck, they could actually drink the whole bottle of cleaner and live to tell about it. (let’s just say, i hope that never happens or we are gonna have a whole lotta acid reflux goin’ on…if you know what i mean!)
ok, so, the smell. seems these days people don’t want to give up the smell of cleaners for the oh-so-delightful smell of vinegar wafting though the house. i just like to think of french fries on the beach. heh. that helps.
you get used to it…in fact just tonight jeremy was eating some salt and vingar chips, and said, “hmm…these taste like cleaner!”….see? its growing on us. (he was joking.)
no, but seriously…. the smell dissipates quickly…and if you read up on it, you will find that vinegar is actually like baking soda in that it absorbs other odors. 🙂
AND! if you mix it with a bit of olive oil, it makes a GREAT wood cleaner/polish! i’m not joking!
well, i could go on about the virtues of this delightful substance (and there are a lot of virtues), but you can check them out yourself at this link here. they even have daily vinegar tips! funtimes!
and so…maybe next time i will focus on my other love: baking soda.
(ok, love is a STRONG word, but you get my drift.)
