Why Vinegar Should be Crowned King of the Kitchen
Use vinegar as a simple home remedy to treat a number of minor discomforts. For bee stings and bug bites, apply a paste of vinegar mixed with cornstarch to the affected area and let the mixture dry. This will ease the stinging and itching sensation.
Poison ivy and poison oak can be treated by mixing a half cup of vinegar with 1 pint of water. Chill the mixture, and then soak a cloth with the cool liquid. Apply the cloth to the rash to ease itching.
You can also soothe sunburned skin by lightly rubbing vinegar on the burned areas. For continued treatment, dilute vinegar with water and pour it into a spray bottle. Lightly mist the sunburned skin as needed.
