We ran out of vinegar for cleaning, so I picked some more up in glass bottles. Check to see if you have bulk vinegar near you (we don't).
Things I use vinegar to clean:
- Kitchen and bathroom counters
- Dishwasher rinse cycle
- Mirrors and windows
- Pretty much everything
What's awesome about cleaning with vinegar (and baking soda):
- Way cheaper than "conventional" cleaners and expensive greenwashed products
- They work!
This fall, when we are eating lots of apples again, I would like to try making apple scrap vinegar. The Zero Waste Chef has a recipe here.
If you aren't familiar with Plastic Free July, take a look at this post. Basically, it's a month-long challenge to reduce the amount of disposable plastic you use. It's a great starting point if you just want to give cutting out disposable plastic a try.
My first Plastic Free July was in 2013(!), and this month I'd like to highlight some of the things I do to reduce my plastic use, and some struggles. Many things are part of my routine at this point (buying in bulk, refusing plastic silverware, etc.), but I am not perfect, and I always find this challenge to be a good time to refocus and look at what trash I am actually producing.
