Benefits of Cleaning with Vinegar

Vinegar has long been a fixture in cooking, but is also shows value for green home cleaning when used properly. Molly Maid, a nationally recognized green cleaning service provider, will use a vinegar based product in your home only upon request.  However, Molly Maid advises vinegar use only in certain situations.

• Uses fewer chemicals - When searching for green cleaning services in your home, vinegar best meets the house cleaning tasks of cleaning floors, mirrors, and glass. Vinegar can be made from anything with sugar (most commonly fruit) and gets its cleaning power from high acidity levels.

• Great at polishing - Vinegar can be most beneficial when polishing surfaces like stainless steel and countertops, and doesn’t require a wipe down after application. It can also be beneficial on some floors, and is a universal odor reducer on almost every surface. Learn how it may also remove the film on your glassware.

• Don’t forget to dilute - The important thing to remember with vinegar is to make sure it’s diluted enough for safe use. If not properly watered down, vinegar can cause expensive damage to natural surfaces such as stone and marble. It can also have a detrimental effect on hardwood floors, often times dulling the finish on the wood. Here is some more information about the possible effects of cleaning with vinegar.

Vinegar could be one of the most versatile and cost-effective tools available for those looking for green cleaning alternatives, offering a very long shelf life for little money.
