    1/4 cup of vinegar
    1/4 cup of sugar
    Add water to a jar and fill it up about 1/2 way and punch holes in the lid.

    I don't measure it, but I would say about a 1/4th of a cup. Just put in machine wherever you would put regular softners. It smells strong but leaves no smell of vinegar on your clothes. It really helps break down soap left in your clothes and you get a better rinse I think.

    White vinegar works great for bee and wasp stings. Just soak a rag or napkin with it and place it over the sting and swollen area. It will greatly reduce swelling and itch. We usually hold it on the area for 5-10 minutes and then reapply every few hours.

    Ok, don't waster your vinegar or sugar on this one. We tried it yesterday and it worked better as a localized small area fly repellant. Zero flies caught.

    For a cleaner I have used 1 cup of vinegar and 1/4 cup of lemon juice as a cleaner disinfectant for counter and table tops. Works very well.

    I used apple cider vinegar to ease the sting from a burn. Just soak a folded paper towel and lay it over the burned area. Works GREAT!

    I put 1/4 cup of Apple cider vinegar in the horses grain. It works as a fly repellent when they sweat it out, and its good for digestion, and for the prevention of calcium deposits. The horses don't mind the taste at all.
