Use Heinz cleaning vinegar on floors, in bathrooms and in kitchens. Vinegar also helps keep coffee makers clean and helps keep dust off exhaust fans, ceiling fans and air conditioning grills.
Heinz cleaning vinegar is 20 percent stronger than regular vinegar. It is sold in many stores, such as WalMart, and is excellent for cleaning as well as cooking.
To clean a coffee maker, fill the water reservoir with Heinz cleaning vinegar and run through one brew cycle. Brew two cycles of clean water through the machine and then enjoy fresh-tasting coffee.
Use Heinz cleaning vinegar to help remove stuck-on foods from pots and pans. Soak the dirty items in full-strength vinegar for about 30 minutes then rinse in hot, soapy water.
Cleaning vinegar is also helpful in keeping a garbage disposal odor-free. Mix a cup of vinegar with enough water to fill an ice cube tray. Freeze. Run the vinegar ice cubes through the garbage disposal and flush with cold water.
Soak a cloth in Heinz cleaning vinegar and use it to polish appliances, chrome fixtures and counter tops. Do not use vinegar on granite as it dulls the surface.
