<p>Try these quick and easy ways to use herbal vinegars to keep your skin and hair looking and feeling clean and fresh.</p>
<p>
<strong>Relieve dry skin:</strong> Pour 1/2 cup baking soda, 1/2 cup uncooked oatmeal and 1 cup vinegar into a warm bath for a refreshing and soothing soak.</p>
<p>
<strong>Enhance your body wash:</strong> Add 1 tablespoon of vinegar to 1 cup of your favorite liquid soap or cleanser. The vinegar will make your skin silky soft.   </p>
<p>
<strong>Clean hands:</strong> Wash your hands with vinegar to soften them. This is especially helpful after working in the garden to remove dirt and stains. </p>
<p>
<strong>Deodorize:</strong> Vinegar is a natural deodorizer. Simply splash some herbal or white vinegar under your arms and allow to dry. </p>
<p>
<strong>Freshen your breath:</strong> A vinegar-salt water rinse is especially helpful for ridding your breath of onions or garlic. Mix 2 tablespoons vinegar, 1 tablespoon salt and 1 cup water to make an effective mouth rinse. </p>
<p>
<strong>Clean combs and hairbrushes:</strong> Soak them in a solution of 2 cups hot water and 1/2 cup vinegar overnight. In the morning, rinse well with cool water and allow to air dry. </p>
<p>
<strong>Sunburn soother:</strong> Soothe a sunburn by mixing 1 tablespoon of vinegar with 1 cup of water and spraying onto your skin. Follow with a non-oil moisturizer, as the vinegar can dry skin.</p>
