There are so many benefits and uses for Apple Cider Vinegar. It’s amazing all the things you can use it for your home. I’ve seen many pins about them. Some of the uses (to name a few):

1. Repels Fleas- 

Mix equal parts ACV and water into a spray bottle and spray on your pet before going outside or after a bath.

2. Shiny Hair – 

  • 2 tbsp ACV
  • 1 cup of water

Cover hair with mix after shampooing, then finish with conditioner.

3. Lower Blood Pressure- (studies have shown)

  • 2 tsp. ACV

  • Honey

The honey cuts out any bitterness from the lemon or vinegar. I used it this week for my cold, and it helps A LOT! Another one of my favorites is the Tangy Cucumber Dressing recipe on the Heinz Vinegar site.

24. Tangy Cucumber Dressing

  • 2 tablespoons Heinz® Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 cup dairy sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup diced peeled cucumber


Combine ingredients. Cover; chill to blend flavors.
Serve over tomato and lettuce salads, sliced chicken or chilled salmon. Makes 1 1/2 cups.

Last but not least, my all-time favorite use of Apple Cider Vinegar, catching fruit flies! We have a lot of our own vegetables and fruit in our garden, so they are always just sitting around waiting for us to eat them. So we attract quite a few. I make our fruit fly trap with a mason jar, apple cider vinegar, a cut piece of fruit and a rolled-up piece of paper. I catch so many of them it blows me away!

    • Angela, I choose to contact you because you said you sipped the vinegar and I was looking for someone who had actually took a little straight, not diluted. I use it on all kind of skin problems and it cures all, great. So, I read somewhere in the past that it was good to take a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar a couple times a week. Ok, shouldn’t be a problem, I have on many occasions taken a tablespoon of balsamic vinegar. well, I went to swallow this and it burned my throat severely . I was able to spit out a lot of it but my throat is so sore that I have been unable to eat or drink, swallow, for two days. Do you know anyone who actually swallowed some? did your sips burn ? I need to know because it just doesn’t make sense, maybe I have some other problem if the vinegar doesn’t burn. I would really appreciate any information about this. Thank You

  1. What is the best method for using ACV for weight loss? I drink it straight twice to thrice a day, but it leaves a bad taste.

    • I’ve not used it for weight loss so I couldn’t give you an exact answer. I did read an article the other day that you can take a shot of 2 tbsp ACV with 2 tbsp water and 1/2tsp ground cinnamon before each meal to rev up your metabolism!

  2. Are there any negatives about ACV….can one OD on same. And, is Heinz White Vinegar healthy for you or only for cleaning purposes. Thx for your reply. R
