    Vinegar (which has an acid to it) and hydrogen peroxide (which is a disinfectant) are both great natural cleaning products and they can be used alone or with each other. I have a spray bottle mixed with 1/2 and 1/2 of both vinegar & peroxide...Works great as a cleaner - kills germs also.

    I always use plain white vinegar on windows and mirrors...no streaks... and no artificial chemicals.

    For the real difficult old water spots, lime, or just hard to clean - - Add just enough vinegar to "Bar Keepers Friend" - - to make a paste - - use this to rub out tough spots - then rinse with vinegar...comes out shiny !

    I keep a spray bottle of vinegar/water on my kitchen counter. I spray the counter several times a day especially after doing any cooking.

    I read that it would keep ants away because it eliminates the phenoroms (spelling is way off). That's the smell on the trail that the ants follow.

    I don't find vinegar/water too good on mirrors or windows. But I haven't tried using straight vinegar.

    Do you mean to say you mix vinegar and peroxide together? Or half vinegar and water in one bottle and half peroxide and water in another.

    I will mix both vinegar & hydrogen peroxide together. I actually heard that on a t.v. talk show regarding home remedies for this or that.- - so far no problem... However, in addition, I also keep a bottle of straight white vinegar and straight hydrogen peroxide ready to spray as my cleaners. I never use a diluted form using water. And straight vinegar works best for the mirrors, windows & chrome.

    Okey. I will mix vinegar & Hydroigen peroxide together.
    Specifically what is that used for?

    I will also make a bottle with vinegar only and peroxide only.

    If I use the peroxide on my hair will it make it go from brown to blond?
    At the present time it is getting a bit grey (gray).
