A few months ago, I found the book The Healing Powers of Vinegar. For as long as I can remember, my entire family has always been vinegar buffs for it’s cleaning purposes. I thought I already loved it. But I had no idea vinegar could be such a miracle liquid from the suggested uses in this book.
There are a few different kinds of vinegar available and all of them are great for different reasons. Used in combination, vinegars are great from cleaning to cooking to other household uses. If you have children or pets, you’ll be opened up to an entire new realm of ways to use it. And I love that with just a couple different products you can handle household needs, beauty routines and health remedies!
