For Your Dishwasher and Dishes
Vinegar can help leave your glassware sparkling, as it will get rid of hard water spots. Simply pour 1 cup of white vinegar into the bottom of your dishwasher, then run the cycle as usual. You can also clean the appliance itself with vinegar—just place a cup full of the liquid on the top rack and run a hot cycle to get rid of grease, grime, and musty smells.
For Your Microwave
If you have baked-on food inside your microwave, save yourself some scrubbing by steaming out the appliance with vinegar. Combine ½ cup vinegar and ½ cup water in a microwave-safe container. Put the mixture in the appliance, and turn it on for three to five minutes. Carefully remove the container (it’ll be hot!), then use a sponge to easily wipe away grime.
