|White Vinegar from the grocery store is my favorite cleaning product. So many uses especially with a dog. My two favorite uses though:
Once Fred got into something, ate it, threw up a dark green goo on my office carpet. Sat there for at least a week as I didn't enter the office and didn't know. When I found it, the stain was old and set in. I poured vinegar over the spot and let it soak in. Covered it with some clean rags and let it sit for 24 hours. Then I took the rags and gently wiped-the green color came out of the white carpet like magic. Another 24 hours for all of the vinegar to evaporate that was soaked into the carpet and no smell remained-vinegar or otherwise.
I also use vinegar set out in little bowls to get rid of funky odors in the house-dog odor, kitchen cooking odors, you name it.
