20 Uses for Apple Cider Vinegar (Weight Loss, Acne, Hair, Skin, and MORE!)

Apple Cider Vinegar is extremely beneficial in MANY different ways. I use vinegar almost daily (see my post here for 50 things to do with vinegar) and I drink Apple Cider vinegar daily too.

Important – be sure to only use the natural Apple Cider Vinegar with the “mother” – this is the brand I use, Braggs and you can get it on Amazon or you can get it at your health food store.

Every day I drink 2 tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar mixed with 8 oz of cold water (drink with a straw to protect the enamel on your teeth). You can add a little honey or agave if it’s too strong for you. When I refer to drinking it below, this is the concoction I am referring to.

Apple Cider Vinegar Health Benefits:

We will call it ACV for short….

  1. Stomach ache – sip on 1-2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar mixed with water. Due to its antibiotic properties it will help kill bad bacteria in your tummy. It may even contain pectin, which will soothe intestinal spasms.
  2. Prevents Indigestion – Add 1 teaspoon of honey + 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar to warm water and drink 30 minutes before you eat.
  3. Soothes Sore throat – Mix 1/4 Warm water with 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar every hour.
  4. Add Shine to hair – It will also clean it and remove build up from hair products and pollution. Fill a cup with 1 cup ACV and 2 cups water. Pour the solution through your hair after shampooing (2-3 times a week)!
  5. Help regulate blood pressure and reduce bad cholesterol when you drink it regularly.
  6. Use as a facial toner – Mix 1 part ACV with 2 parts water in a water bottle or jug with lid. Shake it up before you use it and pour some on a cotton swab (use after washing your face) and wipe on skin.
  7. Weight Loss – Drinking ACV every day (sipping a drink all day) has been said to speed up metabolism and help you lose weight. Nutritionists also believe that combining Vitamin B6 and Lecithin with Apple Cider Vinegar is what helps.
  8. Helps Body Odor – It helps adjust the skin’s pH level which helps to eliminate odor-causing bacteria. Take a cotton ball filled with ACV and wipe it directly on the part where you can body odor.
  9. Foot Odor – Add 2/3 cup of ACV to a pan with warm water and soak your feet in it for 20 minutes.
  10. Bad Breath – Add 1/2 tablespoon ACV into 1 cup of water and gargle every other day.
  11. Diabetes – helps to control high blood sugar levels.
  12. Cellulite – Mix 3 parts apple cider vinegar with 1 part Vitamin E oil and massage the into the skin two times a day.
  13. Yeast Infections
    • Add 1 ½ cups apple cider into a bathtub filled with lukewarm water and then soak in it for about 20 minutes. This is done once a day for 3 days.
    • After 3 days of soaking, make a mixture consisting of 1 ½ cups of water and 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar. This time use as a vaginal douche two times a day for 5 days.
    • After a few days of douching, start to drink a glass of water mixed with 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar once a day. This can help prevent the occurrence of yeast infections.
  14. Diarrhea – The pectin in ACV coats the inflamed colon lining. Add 2 tablespoons of ACV vinegar to some water in a large glass – can be taken 3 times a day when you have symptoms.
  15. Acne: Apple cider kills bacteria, helps balance skin pH, and absorbs excessive oil from our skin. Use 1 part vinegar with 3-4 parts water. Apply to the skin using cotton swab and leave for ten minutes then rinse. Use 2 times every day.
  16. Age spots: Blend and drain an onion in a bowl, and mix with an equal amount of apple cider. Apply with a cotton swab dipped in the mixture over the spots.
  17. Cleaning House – Mix ½ cup of apple cider vinegar with one cup of water and you can use it to clean microwaves, bathroom tiles, kitchen surfaces, windows, glasses and mirrors. The mixture also works as a disinfectant.
  18. Beat the Exhaustion from Working out – When you exercise, lactic acid can build up in the body, causing fatigue. Since ACV has amino acids, it can help reverse this. It also contains potassium and enzymes that can help relieve feeling tired. Try drinking some mixed with water after a workout.
  19. High cholesterol  – A 2006 study showed evidence that vinegar could lower cholesterol
  20. Hiccups – when you have a spurt of those annoying hiccups, drink some ACV with water.
  21. Stuffy Nose – Sip some ACV and water. This helps sinus drainage.
  • Rich in enzymes & potassium
  • Naturally support a healthy immune system

  2. carrie nagel says

    Wow! Good to know! Thanks!

  3. you can use it to get rid of fruit flies!

    • Sarah Gibbons says

      Hi Sarah! Really? I had no idea…I need to look into this…does it work for regular flies?! Thanks!

      • I have not tried it, but they way it works is the fruit flies go through the tiny holes to get to the vigegar and get wet/ and are too weak to make a ruccus while flailing about.. I also feel like the flies might be able to crawl back through the holes because they would have to be so big

        • You use a little a container, we clean out the fancy feast cans, partially fill it up with ACV and a little dish soap, we use Dawn. This attracts the fruit flies, they get stuck and can’t fly out. My mom has been using this for years and I use it in the summer months when I have produce in the house. You can use it in both your kitchen and bathroom. I use off brand ACV. I don’t think I’ve seen regular flies in the can.

        • Put a piece of plastic wrap over the opening of your container with ACV in it then poke random holes with a toothpick. Fruit flies will be attracted to the smell of ACV and go in through tiny holes in wrap. You will find them floating in the ACV within a short period.

  12. IT also gets rid of doggie odor! I rinse my dog with ACV in water after bathing him. It makes his coat super shiny and soft, and it also gets rid of the bacteria that cause that “wet dog” smell.

    Also, use vinegar to get rid of fruit flies. Put some ACV in the bottom of a small container (used plastic water bottles work great). Make a paper funnel and put it in the container. Place it on the counter near the source of the fruit flies. The flies will go in because they are attracted to the smell of the vinegar, but they cannot get back out. It really works!

  21. does it help to remove warts?

    • My 19 yr old had a wart on his hand for years. back and forth to Dr. to get it frozen off, always came back. But bigger!! My mom found the apple cider recipe. AMAZING!!!! Apple cider on piece of cotton ball (size of wart) and cover with duct tape nightly. Withing 2 weeks, this huge wart was burned off!!!! It killed it down to the core. We were amazed. He is a tough kid and some nights he had to wake to remove because it was painful. So he would then do every few nights. 7 months later, it has not been back. Think gone for good!!!!

    • My son was going to the doctor for years for warts on his hands….he ended up with about 25 of them since he kept picking at them. A young doctor came into the room one day and asked if she could try a 1ml of Candida (a shot). Oh my gosh, within a week they were all gone. It is the only thing that I know works for warts. It is not really related to this article, but if you want it gone, it works!! 🙂

  22. Prior to buying any washer, always think of just how mean to keep it.
    Jiamei Tian, believed to be homeless, was arrested in the Kid’s Chapel, and is being looked into
    in connection with the various other attacks.
    A tension washer will certainly take the fairly low-pressure water circulation
    from a routine yard hose pipe and improve the
    tension up’utilizing a pump powered by a fuel engine,
    or in some cases an electric motor.

  23. Dating sites are vibrant and there are a lot of singles who are either men looking for BBWs or the BBW themselves.
    A 40-year-old Westerner is considered young by many of the local ladies in Asia.
    What you need to do then is approach any of the places mentioned earlier to
    ask if there’s a ‘feeding day’, special tour, night hours or other special
    time when you might get ‘insider’ type digital photographs.
