I'm always on the look-out for 'oddball' hacks, and this one has been around for a very long time! I came across a book with over 100 helpful household hints using the clear, inexpensive substance and was instantly interested. As I read, I thought, 'Ha...yeah! Clean your coffee maker with it and taste it for a week!' I also figured that using it for some of the cleaning tips would lead to your entire home smelling like vinegar. But, guess what? It doesn't!
For your coffee maker, 1 run brewing cycle of cold water and 1/4 vinegar; follow with 1 cycle of clean water. (If for some reason you still smell vinegar, run 1 more cycle of clean water. I did not have to do this.) The results are amazing! Try it and see for yourself!
The things you can use the vinegar for are nothing short of wonderful and no, your house won't smell like it! Want more vinegar tips & tricks? Let me know! Have one yourself? Share it with us!
