We actually found out how we could use vinager around our house on accident! My friend and I were little and had done a science expirament where you turned a bottle into a rocket with vinegar. But we accidentially had dropped the bottle of vinegar all over the lawn. We didn't realise at the time that the vinegar would destroy the grass and weeds it touched. But then my dad pointed out all the dead weeds, so ever since, we've been using it as a weed killer for our garden! We never buy weed killer, and we use vinegar cleaner for window washing!

Most household products are expensive, toxic, and wasteful. Even green, non-toxic products cost more than what you could make yourself. Plain old white vinegar is cheap, comes in bulk, and can do just about anything!
