I don't think my house would run smoothly without apple cider vinegar. I know a lot of people hate the smell, but I actually love it. I use it for just about everything. I cook with it. I mop with it. I use it in my laundry. I clean the mirrors with it. I clean the cat litter boxes with it. Not only do I like the smell, but it has a natural anti bacterial agent in it, and its non toxic. So why wouldn't you use it instead of a chemical?
