← Continued from Cleaning with Vinegar

To keep your freshly cleaned oven from stinking up your house the next time you bake something, wipe it with white vinegar as a final rinse.  It neutralizes the harsh alkali of oven cleaners.

On heavily tarnished copper or copper-alloy to be cleaned up, use a paste made of salt and vinegar.  It will clean it with no problem. 

Use one part vinegar and one part water to take pet odors out of carpets.  Find the spot, and saturate it with about one and one half the original volume.  Let it set for a while and then blot up.  Repeat if your cloth is very dirty after blotting.  Make sure to turn on a fan or open a window for the large spots. 

To make air freshener, use one-teaspoon baking soda, one-tablespoon vinegar and two cups of water.  After is stops foaming, mix well, and using a spray bottle, spray it into the air. 

To use as a chewing gum dissolver, saturate the area with vinegar and if the vinegar is heated it will work faster.

Vinegar in a towel, twirled about the head will quickly stop the smoke detectors from screaming.  It also freshens the air and captures the smoke smell before the whole house is affected.   If you put vinegar on white bread around the house, you can get rid of any smoke smell from a fire.
