This wonder liquid is magic everywhere. In addition to a daily shot of it—give it a few days to get used to the taste—it can be used to clean, disinfect, kill weeds, and even make your hair shinier.
Be sure to look for raw, unfiltered, unpasteurized apple cider vinegar to get the biggest benefits. Our current go-to is Bragg Organic.
1. Health Benefits
Though its taste can be a bit bitter, drinking apple cider vinegar every day has health benefits, as it’s rich in malic and acetic acids and potassium. Mix two tablespoons into 16 ounces of water and drink up to:
2. Face Toner
Dilute one part apple cider vinegar to two parts water and use as a natural toner for your face to help tighten skin and reduce breakouts.
3. Hair Shiner
Winter in Minnesota did a number on my hair… it’s dry and dull. Apple cider vinegar to the rescue! After shampooing, rinse a few tablespoons through your hair and say goodbye to build-up and hello to shinier locks.
4. Sunburn Soother
Summer is around the corner, and though you should always wear sunscreen, ACV can be used to sooth a sunburn. Mix one cup into a bath and soak. Your parched skin will thank you.
Apple cider vinegar is a natural disinfectant and works great in the kitchen and bathroom. Dilute a half-cup of ACV with one cup water and get cleaning!
6. Air Freshener
Apple cider vinegar is a natural deodorizer, so dilute it with water, add to a spray bottle, and spritz it around a room for a fresh clean scent.
7. Flea Repellent
Protect your pup from fleas by spraying a mix of one-quarter apple cider vinegar to three-quarters water. Added bonus: A shiny coat!
8. Garden Weed Killer
Summer also means more time in the garden, fresh veggies, and unfortunately, some weeds. Mix one part apple cider vinegar to eight parts water, spray on weeds, and watch ‘em disappear. Your veggies will thank you.
9. Produce Wash
Wash those fresh garden veggies—and all store-bought ones, too—with an apple cider vinegar solution. Mix four tablespoons of apple cider vinegar with a gallon of water and rinse to keep dirt and pesticides away.
