Love My Vinegar!!

By bloominholes2fill
June 22, 2017

The majority of us are well aware that distilled white vinegar has more uses than we can fathom, right? After all, there are plenty of books written on the subject. Well, in the summer of 2011, I discovered a new, brilliant (even if I do say so myself) use for distilled white vinegar that will save you a little more time for your backyard R&R. So what is my, best-thing-since-sliced-bread-and-insect-screens new use for distilled white vinegar?

Dana,

Thank you so much for this great tip!

My birdbaths all need a good scrubbing and then I will try this method to see how it works here in hot, humid Florida! Thumbs up

Thank you for this tip. I love having the birds around and your tip has brought me much closer to putting up a bird bath, something I've been wanting to do but haven't yet!

Vinegar is great stuff, I keep a spray bottle in the kitchen at all times. Thumbs up

I've heard of the tip before, but never ventured to try it. Now I will. I have 2 birdbaths and love watching the creatures that stop by. Maybe the vinegar will discourage the neighborhood cat from invading the bird territory. Whistling

I have a birdbath inches above the ground, and cats DO drink from it, so vinegar is not a deterrant to cats at all!!
