When time is up, strain the liquid into a spray bottle, dilute half-and-half with water, and you're ready to clean house. I haven't tried nearly all of the potential uses for this elixer, but I can vouch that it takes the grease off the stove vent hood and cleans stains from ancient linoleum. The end of the hallway where the dogs' food and water bowls sit had become discolored. I've scrubbed it repeatedly with various commercial cleansers - including bleach - and the stain may have faded, but it was still visible. I poured undiluted vinegar onto the stains, let stand a couple minutes, then mopped the spots away. Seriously amazed! Of course, the vinegar odor is still present, but much less abrasive. I have a second jar of orange vinegar steeping on the counter (I eat a lot of oranges!) and am excited to see what else it can do - well, as excited as I can be about cleaning.
