What are the benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar?
1. A natural way of preserving foods
Apple cider vinegar can be used to preserve and pickle many foods such as cabbage, carrots, garlic and onions. When preserved, these can last for months and are delicious along side many savory dishes.
2. A natural all-purpose cleaner
To easily make a natural all-purpose cleaner you can mix two parts apple cider vinegar to one part water. This mixture is perfect for kitchen tops and bathrooms.
3. Hair protector
If you’re swimming regularly in chlorinated water, your hair might feel a little dry and dull. Applying apple-cider vinegar after swimming is a wonderful way to restore shine and health to your hair. In a spray bottle, mix four parts water with one part apple-cider vinegar and spray generously on your hair. Comb through and let sit for 3-5 minutes before rinsing off. This wonderful tip is from Mukti, an eco-activist and green cosmetic chemist based in Australia. You can find out more here
4. An effective weed killer
Apple cider vinegar can be used as a homemade weed killer by simply spraying undiluted vinegar onto any weeds in the garden. For a stronger spray, you can also try mixing the vinegar with a bit of soap and lemon juice.
5. Delicious in dressings & marinades
Apple cider vinegar can be enjoyed in marinades, salad dressings, pickles or for any recipe that requires vinegar.
A dash can be added to soups, as a condiment with fish and chips, or as a light sprinkle over steamed vegetables to enhance the flavours.
6. A nutritious additive to water
Apple cider vinegar can also be enjoyed as an uplifting beverage. Just add up to 2 tablespoons to a large glass of water and enjoy!
