5 Products We Have Replaced with Apple Cider Vinegar

    Lately we have fallen in love with Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV). We use Braggs unfiltered.  It's important to use unfiltered ACV to get the most out of it. They are literally over 100 uses for ACV, but here are 5 small ways we have replaced commercial products with ACV.

1. Conditioner 

Mix 1 part ACV to 1 part water and pour over your hair. Rinse with cold(ish) water. 

This has done wonders for my hair, and is especially helpful if you have hard water. 

2. Stretch Mark Creams and Oils

Put some ACV on a cotton ball and rub on your existing stretch marks or in areas you would like to avoid stretch marks.  

ACV is a natural skin tightener and I have seen results from this after just one use! 

3. Deodorant

Put ACV on a cotton ball and rub on your armpits (not after shaving though!) 

I had trouble taking the plunge in this one.  Who really wants to test out deodorant? But when I ran out unexpectedly one day, it wasn't very difficult to attempt this and I was pleasantly surprised!  It works really well, and no, you will not smell like vinegar all day.  Josh still wears deodorant to work, but only because he hasn't tried it! 

4. Face Wash and Toner

Mix 1 part ACV to 8 parts water. Put on cotton ball to clean your face. 

I mentioned before that ACV is a natural skin tightener so it is great to use on your face!  We also love how clean it makes us feel!  You'll be amazed at how well it cleans your face, even straight out if the shower! 

5.  Sunburn Relief Lotions

Put ACV on a cotton ball and apply to sunburn. 

This one kinda sounds painful but it actually doesn't hurt a bit!  And it does wonders to relieve sunburns!
