Vinegar is an efficient household cleaner. Mix equal amounts of apple cider vinegar and water to make a cleaning solution. You can use this solution to clear dirt, bacteria, as well as toxins from your home. The vinegar smell disappears once it dries.

Apple cider vinegar has antibacterial properties that will help alleviate break out problems. It also balances the skin’s pH levels. Mix some apple cider vinegar with water. Using a cotton ball, apply this solution as a toner or on the break out spots.

Rinsing your hair with ACV solution on a weekly basis can make your hair soft and shiny. Moreover, it can help balance the scalp’s pH level. Add 1/3 cup of ACV into 4 cups of water. Use the solution to rinse your hair after shampooing. Rinse with cold water afterwards.
To eliminate dandruff, spray your scalp with a mixture of ACV and water (50:50 ratio) 2 times a week. Then, wrap your head with a towel for about an hour. Afterwards, wash your hair as usual.

ACV contains acid that can bind to toxins, and hence assist in eliminating the toxins from the body. Its potassium content can also help to break up mucus in your body and clear the lymph nodes, a process that also aids in flushing out toxins.
