Vinegar on its own has been shown to be highly effective against potential bacterial pathogens, but less effective than store-bought disinfectants.
In fact, the Environmental Protection Agency hasn’t registered vinegar as a disinfectant because it doesn’t kill 99.9 percent of harmful germs.
Vinegar shouldn’t really be used as a disinfectant because it can’t kill very many germs.
Instead, treat it as a cleaning product which removes dirt, debris, bad smells, stains, and SOME germs from things.
Use vinegar to clean your kitchen sink, pans, stove, microwave, pots and pans, windows, glasses and dishes, and your shower door.
