Eliminate Ants in the Kitchen!

Since I’ve become conscious of toxins present in common household cleaners and pesticides, I have become a huge fan of distilled vinegar…plain old cheap, cheap vinegar!  If you need a drain cleaned out, put one part baking soda down the drain followed by one part vinegar; wait 10 minutes and flush with boiling water.

It’s a fantastic deodorizer; it will clear up fish smell in your kitchen by placing a 1/2 cup or so in a shallow dish and leaving it on the counter top.

It’s a great glass cleaner, mixed with water.  It’s anti-bacterial.  You can soak your shower head in a jar of vinegar and it will clean off all hard water deposits.  It’s powerful!

Today I learned another use…as a pesticide.  We had annoying little ants in the kitchen.  When I sprayed them, you would have thought I was using Raid!

What have you found to be a good use for vinegar?

I like to add equal parts of Vinegar and Water. Add one splenda. slice cucumbers really thin and put in your container. Leave at least 24 hours. Can add thinly sliced Vidalia onion.
Great alone or on salads.

I got pickling cucumbers yesterday at the Farmers’ Market. I’ll try that!
