don't use the usual off the shelf grocery vinegar, it's pasteurized and filtered. Braggs, pictured above is the one to get. mix one tablespoon vinegar, 1 tablespoon honey mixed in 8 ounces water is actually very tasty and is great for digestive, lower G.I problems because it adds natural flora to the system.

My Target carries it, as does the Vitamin Shoppe-and they usually have some nice coupons!

You can also drink mineral spirits for heartburn... stay away from acetone of lacquer thinner.

It's great for fire ant stings! I used it once for a burn caused by oven cleaner and it worked very well then too. I used the white vinegar for a normal burn and it took away more than half the pain. For some reason it works better spraying it on than dabbing it on.

Another one: Honey. Extremely underrated these days. In fact it may be too strong in many cases.

Honey has antibiotic properties.I use it for throat infections and I saw once on Reddit that someone got rid of acne with pure honey mask and dedication.

honey is also great to put on cuts and stuff; i use it on my horses as well for little scrapes they get out in the pasture - my vet highly recommends it.

Mix an ounce of organic apple cider vinegar with four ounces of decent vodka over ice and pound it down. You'll feel better immediately.

Ask this blogger to name one single "toxin" that gets "drawn out" of your skin in a vinegar infused bath and I bet you'd get a blank stare.

I used apple cider vinegar as a rinse BEFORE I started coloring my hair. Vinegar strips hair color after awhile. As far as using it on "age" spots I tried that for about a YEAR and I still have those age spots.
So...while vinegar may be benefical in some ways it is not an overall fix-it. I use vinegar and soda to clean sink and shower drains, does the job there!

I drink two tablespoons of "organic" apple cider vinegar with water (with or without pure honey) daily, just before meals about three times a day.

This stuff works! I still get carded too!

I personally don't like the taste of soap. You can get plain steel wool at hardware stores.

Apple cider vinegar is great for many things. However, I would not recommend it as a mouth wash. It is highly acidic, and repeated use as mouth wash will degrade tooth enamel. Additionally, if you drink it for another purpose, drink it through a straw.

Been doing the hair thing for four years now, I could never use shampoo because all the chemical crap makes my hair turn into frizzy garbage for days so I eventually looked into shampoo alternatives, there's no smell by the way, vinegar washes right away.

I did not know about the others, the mouthwash one is noted, because I also despise mouthwash, both for lasting as long as oh, fresh eggs, and for being nasty.

Being a municipal bus driver, it was a wake up. I'd learned that from a truck driver. 2 tablespoons in 6 ounces of water. but I went one better. I eliminated the water. (But, had to be near a bed when things ran their limit. You were dropped like a hot potato) One of the hidden bennies, it controlled my diabetes and high blood pressure --- that I didn't know I had.

Hmmm. I have made a few 10 gallon jugs of Apple Wine. Maybe time to use a different animal in my brews.

I prefer natural over the junk they put in cosmetics, lotions, soaps. Triclosan, parabens, etc.
not good for you, even anti-freeze and engine cleaner stuff in some. There is a website that rates cosmetic items.

I believe you are talking about the cosmetics guide on the environmental working group website. They do not take advertising money and do research on issues like cosmetics, sunscreen, and food safety and they report the results for free. They are a DC lobbying group that actually does some good. They have done a lot of groudbreaking research. See their short documentary "Ten Americans"
