7. Remove coffee, tea and wine stains
To remove wine stains from all-cotton, cotton/polyester and permanent-press fabrics, it’s important to treat the stain within 24 hours. Sponge white distilled vinegar directly onto the area until the stain disappears. Launder according to directions on care label.
8. Fight Underarm Stains and Odour
Deodorant and antiperspirant stains? Fill a spray bottle with undiluted distilled white vinegar. Spray the vinegar directly on the fabric on the inside of the underarm areas before tossing the garment into the washing machine. Allow it to work for at least ten minutes before washing. The vinegar will help to cut through residual deodorant left on clothing and prevent underarm yellowing.
9. Fabric softener
If you don’t like the idea of using heavily scented commercial fabric softeners, but want softer clothes, white distilled vinegar acts as a natural fabric softener and leaves no residue on laundry. Just add one-half cup to the final rinse cycle. If you do like a light scent, add a couple of drops of an essential oil like lavender to the bottle of vinegar.
Although white vinegar is generally safe, there are some things you should never clean with vinegar.
