Move over, bleach. Vinegar is here. And it’s one of the most powerful cleaning agents that comes from an all-natural source.
So why don’t more people use it in their home & garden? Many people may fear that an all-natural cleaner isn't as strong as a chemical. Or perhaps that a natural cleaner won't last as long as a chemical cleaner. Or that a natural cleaner won't be as versatile as a chemical cleaner.
These are valid concerns. Sometimes going natural can be intimidating because it involves a lot of unknown territory.
