Taste the Apples!

We’re all about a great multitasker (cough, coconut oil, cough), and apple cider vinegar is no exception. This salad dressing staple has been linked to a healthier complexion, can help keep your home squeaky clean, and could help with an upset stomach and bloating to list a few uses.

Here’s what it isn’t: a magical shortcut to dropping those unwanted five pounds. In certain circles it’s been touted as a weight loss aid—though that’s still debated in the medical community. While some research suggests it may help tip the scale in your favor by lowering your blood sugar, health experts advise against using it as a weight-loss tool. And a word of warning: drinking apple cider vinegar (especially straight) comes with its share of health risks, like throat irritation and supplement and drug interaction.

  1. Mix up a non-toxic, all-purpose cleaner.
    Step aside, cleaning sprays, solutions, and wipes. There’s a new disinfectant in town. Actually, we kid, seeing as apple cider vinegar isn’t new at all. That said, if you haven’t tried using this common kitchen ingredient to help keep your home sparkling and clean, you’re missing out on a non-toxic, odor-absorbing,antibacterial alternative to harsh chemicals. Just mix one-part apple cider vinegar with one-part water, filter that into a spray bottle, and get to work.
  2. Stamp out the stink in any room.
    Stinky rooms don’t stand a chance against apple cider vinegar, which can take on all manner of smells from smoky cooking to funky bathrooms. To knock out smoky smells in particular, pour the apple cider vinegar into a shallow bowl and place it where the odor is strongest. Leave it out for as long as it takes for the smell to vanish.
