Clean, sweep… Everything is possible with white vinegar. Indeed, this product made from fruits or fermented cereals has many properties. Composed of water and acetic acid, it is considered an excellent cleaner, degreaser, but also a very good deodorant. Find out in our slideshow below how often you should use it for each household task.
If crystal vinegar is so popular, it is also because it can replace a large number of household products. The latter often have toxic ingredients in their composition. Conversely, alcohol vinegar is neither toxic nor polluting. It is even biodegradable, as it does not emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs). However, some mixtures and misuses can be toxic.
While it has many benefits, white vinegar can potentially be dangerous if used the wrong way. Indeed, it is for example not recommended to mix this crystal vinegar with bleach or chlorine. The mixture of the acetic acid found in vinegar and the chlorine in bleach releases a poisonous gas. The latter is called chlorine.
The emanation of toxic gas can cause reactions, explains Céline Touati, naturopath at Medisite. The latter can then irritate the eyes, the skin, but also cause breathing difficulties. Whether in small quantities or not, this gas can therefore be very harmful to humans. Moreover, in high doses, it would be fatal.
In addition, too regular use of white vinegar is not recommended either. Find out in our slideshow below how often you can apply it. These tips are accompanied by cleaning recipes offered by the site of the beautiful address.
