December 21, 2007, Newsletter Issue #78: Vinegar Cleaning-What About The Smell?

Tip of the Week

Those switching to green living lifestyles are eager to save money on household cleaners by switching to vinegar, but often complain about the smell. Most vinegar odors go away once a surface dries out. In the meantime, you can burn incense or scented candles to mask the smell. You can also make an environmentally friendly solution-a mixture of water, lemon juice and baking soda and go over the cleaned surface one more time to freshen it up. It's also important to remember to properly dilute vinegar for some surfaces such as tile. Diluted vinegar won't eat your kitchen floor, plus the smell is watered down as well. The incense of scented candles will be more effective with diluted vinegar cleaning solutions.
