Pets. Adding a teaspoon of white vinegar to each quart of drinking water for a 40 lb. dog will help keep fleas and ticks off of your animal. To get rid of shampoo residue and doggy odor, just add 1 cup of white vinegar to 2 gallons of the final rinse water when bathing your dog.

Jewelry cleaner. Those who have solid gold jewelry claim that soaking your gold in 100% apple cider vinegar for 15 minutes is an excellent way to clean it!
