10 Uses of Apple Cider Vinegar - Part 5 (end)
#9 - Stop a Bruise from Forming (I bruise easily so this is something I will be trying)
To ensure you don't develop an unsightly bruise, soak a piece of gauze in apple cider vinegar and place it on the sore spot. Secure it with a bandage and leave it in place for about an hour. The apple cider vinegar boosts circulation to the skin's surface, which prevents blood from pooling so you won't get a black and blue mark.
#10 - Soften Laundry Naturally (Another one I'll try as long as it doesn't leave a lingering smell)
If you'd rather avoid chemical-laden fabric softeners, which can irritate the skin, use apple cider vinegar instead. To do: Wash clothes as usual, adding 1/2 cup of the vinegar to the rinse cycle. Acetic acid in the vinegar helps break down detergent buildup and relaxes clothing fibers for noticeable softer laundry.
