Day 98: Used Vinegar and Water to Clean Mirrors

Day 98: Used Vinegar and Water to Clean Mirrors

To get that streak free shine on my bathroom mirrors, I used a solution of even parts vinegar and water.

According to “Living Green: The Missing Manual” white vinegar is all-natural and all-safe-and an excellent all around cleaner.

According to the Household Products Database from the US Department of Health and Human Services, a glass cleaner such as Glass Plus is harmful if ingested. May cause drowsiness, dizziness, loss of coordination, vomiting and abdominal pain.

What was your simple green act for the day?

  • Good one! I use the same to clean the kitchen and bathroom counters but didn't realize it would work on the mirrors, too!

    Dave hates the vinegar smell, but a few drops of citrusy EO masks it nicely.

    Nice. You could also just squeeze some fresh lemon in there too.

    I do this too, and it is a great all-purpose cleaner around the kitchen as well.

    I discovered that for 10 bucks you can refill your printer cartridge at Walgreens. I feel good about not having to buy a new one and throw the old one away.

    Btw, the cabbage juice tastes great, refreshing and slightly tangy. And I know how it sounds, but I think the presence of the bacteria resulting from the fermentation makes the cabbage easy on the ole digestion, if ya know what I mean.

    Yes I have huge tub of vinegar that I use for many things. Love it. Might start to experiment with making my own vinegar.

    I just might try that cabbage concoction.
