Vinegar is a wonderful thing. It can be used all over the house, inside and out; for cleaning, cooking and gardening. In the kitchen, keep it in the jar, but have a few spray bottles handy in the laundry room, the bathroom and the garage.

Keep a bottle in the laundry. Use this to spray on shirt collars and under the arms. Spray it on mustard stains, too.

Step 4

Keep a regular white vinegar bottle in your laundry room as well. Pour a half a cup into your wash to fight stains, smells and lint. You can also add a quarter cup to the last rinse of your laundry.
