1. Weeds
Vinegar is incredibly strong stuff. In fact, it’s so strong that if you can spray it on weeds and the plant won’t come back. Only eradicate the weeds this way if there are no other flowers or plants nearby. Of course, you don’t want your colorful plants in the garden to die. One option for removing weeds between other plants can be the following: gently drizzle, spray or brush the vinegar over the leaves of the weeds. The best results are if you spray it on the weeds on a dry and sunny day; as it can take a while for the weed killer to get to work. The sun speeds up the process.

2. Pets
Dogs and cats can suffer from itchy and flaky skin on, in and around the ears. Especially if you have a pet with floppy ears like and labrador or golden retriever, this is often a problem.
