Steph’s in-laws are here for the week to work on the cabinets and the plumbing in this 1940s-era fixer-upper.
Steph and the Old Man have a really great coffee maker that’s shiny and kewl and makes the best coffee ever, but it had been taking progressively longer and longer for the coffee to brew. Steph’s mother-in-law, Nancy, noted this and brewed the thing with – get this – vinegar, in order to dissolve all of the deposits in the machine.
After a thorough brew with the vinegar solution and two more brews with regular water. the thing works great.
Here are 61 other little-known uses for vinegar.
