Another Friendly Cleaner

White distilled vinegar makes an environmentally friendly cleaner. Clean the shelves and walls of the refrigerator with a half-and-half solution of water and white distilled vinegar.  Cut the grime on the top of the refrigerator with a paper towel or cloth and full-strength white distilled vinegar.   Get rid of lime deposits in a tea kettle by adding 1/2 cup vinegar to the water and letting it sit overnight. If more drastic action is needed, boil full-strength vinegar in the kettle a few minutes, let cool and rinse with plain water.  Remove mineral deposits from coffee makers.
