All vinegar is not alike. The one that should be used for consumption is Organic Apple Cider Vinegar – with the mother at the bottom of the bottle. Bragg is the brand I use and like the best, although there are other companies that make Organic Apple Cider Vinegar.
The vinegar that should not be consumed and is great for cleaning etc. is White Vinegar. White Vinegar is considered a dead vinegar because all the nutritional value has been removed through the distillation process. It is better suited for a variety of household and workshop chores. Listed below are some of the uses for white vinegar as a cleaner, deodorizer and disinfectant.
Also, it is sold as ‘All Purpose Cleaning Vinegar.’
- Kitchen Appliances and Countertops.
- Greasy areas: mix 1/4 cup white vinegar with 2 cups hot water and add 1-2 drops of biodegradable liquid soap, in a spray bottle. Will store in the cupboard.
- Bread boards and chopping blocks: Use full strength. Spray on and leave overnight. In the morning rinse with water.
- Pots and pans: make a paste of baking soda and white vinegar. Helps remove stubborn stuck on foods.
- Dish Washer: Can stop spotting of glass and China by placing 1 cup vinegar on the bottom rack of an electric dishwasher before starting the wash.
- Drains and Pipes: mix 1/3 cup baking soda with a cup of white vinegar. Pour into drain. Cover with a plate and let sit for an hour or longer. Then, flush through with cold water.
- Garbage Disposal: Pour white vinegar/water (80/20% ratio) into an ice-cube tray – put in freezer. Put 1 or 2 ice cubes in disposal, turn on, and walla, you have just cleaned your disposal. Once weekly is good.
- Sink, Tub and Shower: Spray with a 80/20 ratio of a vinegar and water. Leave on for 10 minutes, then scrub and rinse.
- Chrome, Stainless Steel, Garbage Pails: Use to make Chrome and Stainless Steel shine, and disinfect Garbage Pails.
- OTHER USES: In the laundry – Run the washing machine for a full cycle with a pint of white vinegar to remove soap scrum from tub part and the hoses; Soften and disinfect fabric, clothes, etc. by adding to last rinse; Eliminate mineral deposits on steam iron plate, by filling the iron reservoir with straight white vinegar and allow to steam on a rag. Then fill with plain water and turn upside down and let water drain out; Carpets: use a mix of 2 Tbsp salt and 1/2 cup white vinegar – rub paste into stain on the carpet, allow to dry before vacuuming. I just rub the stain with straight vinegar and let it dry. The stain comes out without the use of bleach. (tip from the carpet sales person); Disinfect your child’s toys with a light spray of vinegar (50/50 ratio of vinegar and water) and brush or wipe clean; Windows – eye glasses, car windows and car, etc. Spray 50/50 ratio vinegar-water then wipe clean with soft cloth; Have those unwanted weeds? pour on straight vinegar. Last, but not least. Vinegar works as a non-toxic pesticide when equal parts of vinegar and water is sprayed on areas where ant invasions start.
What a versatile product. I am sure there are many more uses out there. I have used some of these tips and they do work. And, just think – no toxic residue or poisons.
REMEMBER – CLEANLINESS IS NEXT TO GODLINESS. It works best when chemicals are not involved.
FOR MULTIPLE HEALTH ISSUES!
Since my specialty is detoxification, I thought I would share some tips to help you decide whether you have a health issue and if you do, what you might need to do to get your health back on track. I have talked about many of these topics in previous blogs over the years. This list touches on topics I have talked about and some that I have not talked about. It is basically and AWARENESS LIST. So, for your information:
- Obstruction to the flow of energy is DISEASE!
- Eating RAW FOODS and FRUITS will expand your awareness.
- All life seeks a balance. It begins with every organ in the body.
- IMMUNE CELLS are eliminators – which starts with a healthy Lymph system. When the Lymph gland/system is weak tumors may develop. They can also be referred to as Lymph Clots. A clogged Lymph System is the cause of ALLERGIES. Thinning Hair is caused by Lymph Stagnation. In short, and unhealthy LYMPH SYSTEM chews on cells.
- CANCER is a mutated cell. All cancers are lymphatic. Detoxification helps clean CELL DAMAGE – and is a must do.
- CALCIUM is the second antacid of the body. KELP is the highest in natural calcium. PROLAPSED ORGANS are caused by the loss of calcium. PASTEURIZATION destroys Calcium. The PARA-THYROID gland controls CALCIUM.
- URINE is cellular waste.
- STEROIDS destroy the ADRENAL GLANDS!
- BALDING – suffered by many, is caused by poor upper blood circulation in the body. Upper is above the shoulders.
- FRUCTOSE: Natural Fructose, which the body produces, is a necessary sugar for cells.
- PROTEINS & STARCH raises the blood sugar.
- An ALKALINE DIET is and should be the base diet of everyone. It is a base chemistry diet which consists of FRUITS and some vegetables.
- How FAST FOODS or any not so healthy foods are Digested – is controlled by the THYROID GLAND.
- CHOLESTEROL – not understood by many of us, is THE BODY’S MAIN ANTACID. The body naturally makes the cholesterol needed for this purpose. It is the addition of cholesterol that is ingested into the body by the foods you eat, that are not good for you, that causes the High Cholesterol Issues that folks experience.
- ANESTHESIA – given for surgical purposes, suppresses the nervous system and your ability to breathe.
- LOW BLOOD PRESSURE is caused by low blood sugar and/or low ADRENAL GLAND FUNCTION.
- MOLES are caused by ADRENAL weakness. Moles grow on people who do not metabolize sugar. It is an ADRENAL WEAKNESS. Also stay away from starches.
- STRESS – shuts down the KIDNEYS.
- TOO MUCH PROTEIN EATS THE ORGANS. With this being true, why do people think MEAT is needed for protein. Again, the body produces it’s own protein in the amounts needed to maintain good health. EXTRA protein, if and when needed, is abundant in the fruits and vegetables available for consumption. MEAT PROTEIN IS A KILLER.
- PAIN – if in pain DO NOT EAT PROTEIN.
- GOUT is caused by FUNGUS, and too much PROTEIN makes too much uric acid which activates the fungus that causes the Gout. It is an internal process.
- VARICOSE VEINS – is a CALCIUM problem caused by a weak Thyroid and Parathyroid.
- WRINKLES as well as THINNING HAIR- are the result of a Thyroid problem.
- MESSAGE – did you know message should always be done CLOCKWISE, as if done COUNTERCLOCKWISE it weakens.
- SWEATING is controlled by the KIDNEYS.
- Did you know that a drink that is advertised as being good for you – called ENSURE, is really bad for you. It is MUCUS FORMING. Many of the flu’s experienced are caused by Mucus.
- ASTHMA is and ADRENAL WEAKNESS…thus allergies, etc.
- MIGRAINE HEADACHES – can be caused by THYROID ISSUES, and CONSTIPATION.
- SPLEEN – God gave us all the organs that are good for us, and they each have a purpose. Why is it believed that we can live without the SPLEEN? The purpose of the SPLEEN is to clean the blood. In cancer cases where Chemo is used – please know that CHEMO DESTROYS THE SPLEEN. How can that help cure any Cancer when GOOD BLOOD is the answer to many health issues.
- ACID RE FLUX – is a Pancreas issue.
- ARTHRITIS IS ALWAYS A SULFUR PROBLEM.
- EYE PROBLEMS – are linked to the LYMPHATIC SYSTEM.
- DIABETES – is linked to Weak Adrenal Glands which controls sugar metabolism.
- BLOOD PRESSURE – connected to Heart, Adrenal, and Kidney issues. To bring the Blood Pressure down you need to clean the Kidneys. Eat a lot of Celery to help bring it down, and then eat less to maintain.
- HEART ARITHMEAS – are experienced when the NERVOUS SYSTEM is affected. The ADRENAL GLANDS CONTROL THE NERVOUS SYSTEM.
- Special Note: WHEN YOUR ORGANS GO – SO DOES YOUR SPINE.
IN SUMMARY: If you are not aware, the Chemistry of the body is important. Chemically speaking, the body should be 80% ALKALINE and 20% ACIDIC. In order to get to this balance, one should eat Fruit all day. Salad at Night, stay away from Dairy, Pasta, bread products, consume no Alcohol, or Caffeine, do not smoke (Cigarettes or Vape), and TAKE A HEALTHY BLEND OF VITAMIN SUPPLEMENTS.

REMEMBER – All FOOD oxidizes in the body. Maintenance begins by doing the right thing – as mentioned above. Taking HERBAL Formulas will enhance the function of the body’s system.
You must DETOX to REBUILD the genetic chemistry and moving of obstructions from the body. DETOX empowers the BODY TO HEAL itself.
