Apple Cider Vinegar is a superfood, able to tackle tasks from cleaning up mold and covering odors to spicing up a salad with ease. It is easy to make yourself, and can also be inexpensive from the grocery store in raw, organic versions with the mother.

Apple cider vinegar can be made at home with chunks, cores, and peels of apple, some sugar, water, and a mason jar covered in cheesecloth. It is a simple matter of allowing the apples to ferment and create bacteria, a process that takes about a month.

There are plenty of great recipes for making your own apple cider vinegar online, but if you are unable to there are also lots of resources for good ACV at your local grocery or health food store. If you’re buying ACV at the store, look for it packaged in glass bottles, raw with the mother. With the mother means that the bottle with have a cloudy mixture at the bottom of it, a collection of bacteria and enzymes that will continue enrich the vinegar throughout its life.

What can you use this amazing vinegar for? It is truly astonishing how many tasks ACV can help out with. Here are just a dozen of my favorites.

As a skin cleanser and toner. Because of its antiseptic properties, vinegar has always been a common recommendation for skin care. Apple cider vinegar in particular helps to regulate your skin’s pH levels, reducing inflammations and blemishes. Leaving skin feeling smooth and soft, ACV has been used to treat acne and psoriasis by some home remedy enthusiasts, and it will help to keep skin clear and even.

Pickling. One of the most well known uses for Apple Cider Vinegar is in the pickling of vegetables, particularly when making classic pickled recipes like dill pickles. Apple cider vinegar is a favorite for pickling because its flavors add some depth to the recipe but do not overwhelm the other spices in the mix. At five percent acetic acid, apple cider vinegar has just the right amount of acid for preserving vegetables.

Deodorizing. Apple Cider Vinegar can be used as an alternative to store-bought deodorants.  Pure ACV can be applied to the underarms with a washcloth, and when it dries it will absorb odors and also kill germs.  It is a much more healthy choice than deodorant sticks, and after an initial scent of pickles it will have almost no smell.
