Here are some snippets to get you started on your way to Vinegar Everyday!
Our first first lady, Martha Washington, supposedly won the president’s heart after he was drawn to her glowing skin. Her secret? Vinegar, of course!
You can whip up Martha Washington’s Vinegar Facial Mask by combining the following ingredients:
• 1 egg
• 1 teaspoon honey
• ½ teaspoon apple cider vinegar
Apply the mask to your face and relax for 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water and pat dry. Better watch out, though – people might look at your radiant complexion and start assuming you are pregnant!
In my 40s, I thought it to be quite an injustice that I had to battle acne as I was developing wrinkles. Wrinkles and acne do not belong on the same face. Period. At least that’s my opinion. In actuality, over 17 million adult American women suffer from acne – in their 20s, 30s and 40s. And, unfortunately, it is genetic (sorry, kids!). But if you mix 2 teaspoons of ACV in a cup of water and apply it to the breakouts after you wash your face morning and evening, you will watch them vanish … without spending a fortune on infomercial remedies!
Odors can be subtle. Or, perhaps you wish they were so.
Bathroom odors are something we all have to deal with. That’s why it is a good idea to keep a spray bottle in every bathroom and powder room so your family and guests all have easy access to a natural odor eliminator. Mix a teaspoon of baking soda, a tablespoon of vinegar and a cup of water in a clean spray bottle. Spritz the air whenever the need arises.
Will your home smell like a meadow or spring rain or a pine forest? Nope. But it will smell fresh and the air will be safe to breathe!
Odors can be spicy … or oniony … or just plain unpleasant. Odors in the kitchen are common, and most arise from cooking. Cabbage is one culprit. Cut out the foul odor by boiling the cabbage in water with a splash of vinegar added.
To minimize a fishy odor, just apply some of the DWV to the fish and rub it in.
Hands smelling oniony or garlicky? Wash them in some distilled white vinegar. Problem solved.
