healthiest cooking oil – which one is it?

According to WebMD and the American Heart Association it is Olive Oil

You can use it for almost any kind of cooking and extra-virgin olive oil (also called EVOO) can help fight inflammation and lower your blood pressure, what in turn can lower your risk of heart disease. EVOO is loaded with antioxidants and since it is able to improve the health of your blood vessels, it prevents blood clots.

  • Add one Cup of White Vinegar to one Cup of your vavorit detergent.

Yep that is it.

The Vinegar works as a natural deodorizer and can help with removing smells from pet accidents, stinky gym clothes or mildew smells from wet Towels. It is not only good for those smells but can also be used as a natural whitener instead of bleach.

When used to whiten you need to soak your Items overnight in the mixture of one-part vinegar and 10 parts water, then wash them the following day in the rinse cycle with a 1/2 cup of vinegar.

In case, you have a Stain, you can add the Vinegar right on to the stain and wash immediately.

  • Combine 1 – part Vinegar with 1-part dish soap (I like Castile soap to stay Eco friendly , plus it lifts dirt, cuts grease, and eliminates tough stains)
  • add water to dilute it if needed. It all depends on how potent you need the cleaner
  • pour into Glass Spray Bottle
  • wipe down with cotton Cloth.

If you have very tough stains like hard water, mold or rust you may use the Vinegar solution alone. Pour it directly on a Sponge or cleaning rag to wipe the stains.

When you do that be sure to wear Gloves, the potent solution can irritate your skin and nails when used undiluted.

Combine 1-part vinegar with 1-part hot water in a bowl or measuring cup.

  • Pour it into a glass spray bottle
  • Test your solution on a corner of the window to make sure the vinegar-water solution is strong enough to remove the grime. In case your windows are very greasy, pre-wash them with a degreasing dish soap (like Citra Solv) then follow up with the mixture.
  • Start by Spraying the solution at the top of your windowpane, try not to let the Solution drip down the window, if that happens it will not have a chance to work its magic. Let it sit for a moment before wiping down the Window.
