Some of the Many Uses for Apple Cider Vinegar

I have kept apple cider vinegar in my pantry and medicine chest for as long as I can remember. I use it for so many different things my kids think it is a wonder product. I use it for cooking, cleaning and as a remedy for many ailments.

Apple cider vinegar makes a great facial toner and mask. If you or your kids have acne, use it on your face to help. I make a mask out of clay powder mixed with the vinegar. Smear it on your face and let it sit for about 30 minutes. I also use it as a toner after opening my pores with hot water and a cleanser.

It makes a great gargle. Mix it in some warm water with salt, honey and hot sauce and it will relieve a sore throat instantly. My kids do not like this, they say it tastes nasty, but they have to admit that it works.

This vinegar is rich in potassium. It helps with high blood pressure and the bad cholesterol in your body. It can also help put your body in a better state of health and possibly help prevent cancer.
I have found that if I am having a problem with constipation, apple cider vinegar will take care of it. I mix one tablespoon of the vinegar into a galls of water and drink it down quickly. It usually only takes a couple of hours to do the trick and will not give you stomach cramps many other laxatives give you.

When it comes to cleaning, apple cider vinegar is a powerhouse. I like to use it to clean the tile in the shower. Mix a cup of the vinegar into a gallon of warm water and spray the shower walls with it. Soak them well. Let sit for a few minutes but not until it is dry. Wipe down the walls with a damp cloth and the built up soap scum will come off easily.

You can use this vinegar to clean counter-tops in the kitchen and the floor too. Do not worry about the odor, it dissipates rather quickly. As a matter of fact, it will eliminate odors in your house. I use it to freshen up a room that is musty smelling. You can spray a mixture on a carpet where a pet has urinated and the smell will be gone in no time.

Apple cider vinegar is an inexpensive solution to many problems. Keep a bottle in the kitchen and another one in the bathroom. Use it for your health, to cure a cough or to clean ketchup stains from your favorite shirt. It will keep ants from crawling around and is not toxic to family pets.
