Coffee, tea or...yuckiness! Don't you hate those awful lime deposits in your tea kettle? Guess what? Distilled white vinegar is the answer. Imagine that! Simply pour 1/2 cup into your tea kettle, fill with water and go to bed. The lime deposits will be gone in the morning.
Then there's the ashy residue in your coffee maker and other yuckiness. Fill the reservoir with a cup of vinegar, run it through a cycle. Follow up with two more cycles with just plain tap water.
Stains on your favorite teacup or coffee mug? Do a 50/50 mix of distilled white vinegar and baking soda, scrub lightly and rinse. Another non-vinegar related trick I sometimes do to rid my cups of those brown stains is to fill the cup with warm water and plop a denture-cleaning tablet in. Let the fizz do its magic and voila! Good as new.
There you go. Now you can start off your day with coffee, tea and...cleanliness. Thank God for Vinegar Fridays, huh?!
