We use it in salad, sauces and perhaps to clean the windows. But did you know that you can use vinegar in other parts of the household as well? Here are 15 incredible uses for vinegar.
1. It cleans the coffee maker
Mix two cups of water with a cup of undiluted vinegar and put the solution obtained in the coffee maker. Start it and repeat the process two or three times before you make fresh coffee.

Overnight, keep the dish sponge in a bowl where you put some vinegar. Then let it dry before use. The same trick works with bath sponges.
