We’ve already filled you in on all of the miraculous, multitasking benefits of coconut oil. Now, just like everything else in the ever-changing world of fitness, there’s a new miracle worker in town! Meet apple cider vinegar, the fat fighting and house cleaning miracle ingredient. Typically used as an ingredient in salad dressings, folks have been experimenting with apple cider vinegar and finding that it has numerous surprising uses and benefits.

  1. Clear up your skin.

    Everyone has that one blemish that pops up on the worst possible day. To avoid this beauty faux pas, try incorporating apple cider vinegar into your morning routine. Used as an astringent or spot treatment, apple cider vinegar can help tighten pores to avoid blemishes or to dry out current skin issues. Hint, dilute the apple cider vinegar with a bit of water to avoid the harsh scent.

  2. Add apple cider vinegar to fruit juice for some welcomed, body slimming benefits.

    Try adding apple cider vinegar to apple or pineapple juice with a bit of honey for a sweet, metabolism revving snack. Start your morning off with this energizing concoction and it will help you lose those last stubborn five pounds!

  3. Get rid of those pesky garden weeds with the help of apple cider vinegar.

    Apply ACV to weed infused areas of your garden to safely kill the unwanted weeds and help your welcomed plants flourish. Talk about a multitasker!

  4. Bad breath, be gone!

    Gargling with a small amount of apple cider vinegar can kill the germs and bacteria in your mouth that cause less than fresh breath. Mix the ACV with water and swish it around for a good minute. As a bonus, adding apple cider vinegar to your tooth paste and working it into your smile can help lead to a whiter, brighter grin!

  5. Help your body recover from that tough workout by adding apple cider vinegar to your lotion.

    Massage the mixture into those sore, tired out muscles to help decrease recovery time and ease the tenderness of tired out muscles.

  6. Ease sore throats and clear out your sinuses by sipping on this home remedy for illnesses.

    Sipping on 2 parts water and 1 part apple cider vinegar can help soothe a sore throat and clear out stuffed up sinuses. Full of potassium, iron, and calcium, apple cider vinegar can help kick start your body into fighting whatever illness you may be battling.

  7. Freshen up your home, office, and car.

    We all have those spaces that are host to a lingering stench. Leave a bowl of apple cider vinegar in the area and let it absorb the bacteria and aroma causing the unpleasant smell. Let the bowl sit for as long as it takes to fully dissolve the smell. Then, take a nice breath of fresh air!

  8. Tame your mane with the help of this popular ingredient.

    Apple cider vinegar works miracles for your hair in more ways than one. ACV can be used to rid your scalp of itch and dandruff. Mix one part ACV with 2 parts water and rinse your hair with the mixture. This concoction can also increase the shine of your hair and help get rid of excess greasiness.

When we said multitasking miracle worker, we sure did mean it! With so many diverse uses, you should certainly have a bottle of apple cider vinegar in your pantry to deodorize, freshen your breath or primp your smile or hair, or help get you to that rocking body you’ve been working so hard for!

Keep your eyes peeled for more surprising benefits and even more multitasking ingredients you may have lying around at home!
