Cleaning the house

White vinegar is an indispensable cleaning and laundry tool for every housewife. This affordable and natural ingredient helps get rid of stubborn stains and pungent odors.

But there are some things that cannot be cleaned with vinegar to avoid spoiling them. OBOZREVATEL has compiled a list to help you avoid this.

Vinegar is still an acid and therefore can negatively affect some surfaces.

Cast iron

The non-stick surface of cast iron cookware is protected by a special layer that vinegar can easily corrode. Cast iron can even crack if you use such a cleaning solution frequently, so you should avoid it to preserve the cookware.

Electrical appliances

Screens of TVs, cell phones, and other gadgets should not be cleaned with a solution containing vinegar. This will damage the coating of the equipment, and the liquid can seep inside, leading to breakage.

However, white vinegar is safe for cleaning household appliances such as washing machines, refrigerators, and dishwashers. This solution will help to avoid unpleasant odors.

Objects or things made of rubber

After prolonged use of vinegar to clean such items, the rubber may crack. It is better to avoid this cleaning method.

Furniture, carpets

If you want to clean upholstered furniture, carpets, or mattresses from stains left by pets, you should not use white vinegar. The pungent odor of the solution can only increase the smell of urine or feces.

Iron

The iron should also not be cleaned with vinegar because the acid in the solution can damage the surface and this will lead to damage to the appliance.
