You can unclog a drain with a handful of baking soda down the drain and add one half cup of vinegar.  Rinse with hot water.

You can use vinegar to remove hard water deposits around your sink and it is so simple.  Soak a paper towel with vinegar and place it around the area that needs to be cleaned or for cleaning the faucet, you can soak the towel and wrap it around and then use a rubber band to keep it place.  Let it sit overnight and it is easy to clean in the morning.  It is safe on brass faucets too.  You can pour one gallon of white vinegar into the water of your whirlpool tub once a year and run it.  This will keep the jets from clogging up from soap scum. 

Hot vinegar can be used to remove paint from glass and around windows where you have accidentally gotten paint on the glass.  Just heat up the vinegar on the stove and use a cloth to wipe away paint.  You can also use boiling vinegar with no water to clean hardened acrylic paints from paintbrushes.  Do not soak them too long, because it could loosen the hairs from the brush. 

Try using vinegar as a bug spray.  Put some vinegar in a spray bottle and use it the next time you see a bug.  This is safe to spray even on your furniture and near pet dishes or children’s toys.  You can also use vinegar for wasp and yellow jacket stings.  Just soak cotton ball in cider vinegar and hold to the sore spot.  Within a few minutes the pain stops.  It would work on bee stings too; only get the stinger out first.
