One of the wonder cleaners of the last century.
For those of us who want to keep our houses clean. Without chemicals. We rely on vinegar.
There are two types of vinegar.
Which we use in salad dressings. And cooking.
And cleaning vinegar.
Which I use to clean my windows. And mirrors.
In my dusty. Remote property in rural Australia. Where I live on a dirt road.
Vinegar is a perfect ingredient to use to clean the water tank of your iron.
How do you know if your water tank needs to be cleaned?
These are the tell tale signs.
If it’s clogged. It will spit out brown sludge.
Who hasn’t been there? Seen that?
What’s the difference between distilled vinegar?
And cleaning vinegar?
Regular white vinegar is 5% acidity.
And cleaning vinegar is 6% acidity.
The one percent actually makes it 20% stronger.
Take note! Cleaning vinegar is NOT to be used for cooking.
The fresh scent of cleaning vinegar smells exactly the same as white vinegar.
These are the instructions for cleaning your iron.
Use either distilled vinegar. Or cleaning vinegar.
Fill the water tank of your iron with white vinegar.
Let the vinegar soak in the tank for a few minutes.
Set your iron to steam.
And steam a cloth you don’t care about until your tank is empty.
Refill your tank with water.
And iron as usual.
How easy is that?!
