Cleaning Naturally With Vinegar

Last week I shared this pretty two-toned gray dresser with great curves and beautiful brass hardware. 
 
 
She was a beauty, except for one little problem.
She had smelly drawers!
 
 
But a washing with vinegar and a little sunshine worked like magic! 
 
 
I though maybe Heinz should market vinegar to us DIY gals.
Well guess what, they do! I just read a post from my friend Holly over at 504 Main on how she uses vinegar to clean her home naturally. And look what she found - Heinz Cleaning Vinegar! It has a slightly higher acidity level for even more cleaning power. Look for it right next to the regular vinegar. ... Thanks so much Holly. What a great post!
 
 
Okay, that was your tip for the day! I'm off to take pictures of our upcoming tag sale so I can share a preview post. Then it's back to the Decorator Show House to finish up. Details about both events are on the sidebar. And don't forget to enter our Goose Creek Candle Company giveaway! ... Wow, there's a lot going on around here! ... Hope you have a great day!

Sharon, I have been cleaning my windows with vinegar and water for years. it's cheaper than window cleaners and doesn't streak. I love your new dresser. Smiles, Susie

vinegar is magical. i love using it for cleaning, removing odors, and even mixed with a little lemon oil to refresh wood!

Natural cleaning products are the best! You've inspired me to go get some bottles and make some of my own mixes as we try to move over to all natural.

glad you posted this. I had some smelly drawers and I tried all kinds of things, maybe even vinegar. What I wanted & needed was sunshine. but it wasn't happening. It was too cool and gloomy. :(
