Survival Tips and Tricks to Help You Save Money - Part One

Vinegar is a very useful item and is commonly found in everyone’s kitchen. Finding alternate uses for common household items is a great way to help cut down on your costs and prevent needless waste. Here are a few simple ways you can use vinegar that may help you save a little money.


1.) Soak new propane lantern wicks in vinegar for several hours. Then let your wicks dry completely before using. Your wicks will last longer and burn brighter.

2.) Soak hardened paint brushes in hot vinegar. Then wash your paintbrushes out with warm, soapy water to soften up the bristles so it can be used again. No need to throw that dried out paint brush away.

3.) When patching drywall, you can prevent the plaster used for patching from drying too quickly by adding one tablespoon vinegar to the water when mixing to slow the drying time.
