Vinegar - Your moms best cleaning secret

Much can be said about how hard our grandparents had to work to keep their home stocked with food and even harder for them to clean. With today's technologies and the blessings of many electronic appliances / gadgets, what once took our grandma's days in the home to accomplish we can now do with little effort. Days long forgotten, a simpler time with simple remedies. A well stocked pantry was not what it is today. There was very little spent on cleaning supplies, or at least what we now would expect to see. The wisdom that they had on what worked and what did not was tried and proven, handed down through the generations. If we could look back in time the one thing that we would notice is it would be hard to tell the difference between cleaning supplies and cooking / baking supplies! Vinegar, whether white or apple cider were the staples that every home needed, and it is no wonder when you see what they can do!
