Did you know that vinegar is not only used in cooking but also works well with cleaning? Well, if you don’t, then these great hacks could be the next life-changing cleaning methods you’ll learn. This might sound bizarre for those who haven’t tried cleaning with vinegar yet, so to give you a little background, vinegar is a great disinfectant and is effective in eliminating household bacteria. You might be worried that it might give off a sour smell, but that won’t be the case when you use them as a cleaning agent. Vinegar is a great deodorizer as it traps bad odors and eliminates them. Here are 5 cleaning hacks that Clean My Space via YouTube will walk you through!



  • 5% Plain white vinegar
  • Baking soda
  • Microfiber cloth or any cloth


Hack #1

Produce Wash. To remove waxy coatings a.k.a. pesticides and other chemicals from your fruits and vegetables, simply mix 1 cup of vinegar and 1 cup of water in a large bowl, then submerge the produce on it. Slowly add 2 tablespoons of baking soda and let it sit for up to 10 minutes or less. You can also use a spray instead, drain the produce, give it a good rinse, and dry.


Hack #2

Glass Cleaner. Grab a spray bottle and mix equal parts of water and vinegar on it. Shake it well, then spray onto glass surfaces, and wipe with a microfiber cloth for best results. This is effective in removing dirt and leaving no-streak.

Hack #3

Dishwasher Cleaner. First, empty your dishwasher and throw about a cup of baking soda at the bottom, let it sit overnight then put in a super hot cycle. As soon as it stops, open it and dump 2 cups of white vinegar, close it back and let it finish another super hot cycle. Enjoy a sanitized and odor-free dishwasher.

Hack #4

Laundry Booster. Vinegar helps detergents and fabric softeners work better, just simply put in a pre-rinse compartment, if available, or instead, put it directly into the machine while it’s filling up with water. This helps brighten the color, soften, and deodorize your fabric.

Hack #5

Cutlery Polish. To remove spots and/or hardened or stuck leftover food on your cutlery, fill a Pyrex dish or a large container with boiling water, then add a cup of vinegar. Dump the cutlery in and let it sit for a few minutes, then wipe them one by one using a microfiber cloth or any cloth available. Enjoy your sparkly clean cutlery.
