3. Apple cider vinegar is also said to LOWER YOUR CHOLESTEROL AND YOUR HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE when taken full-strength every day. The dosage is about one to two teaspoons.

4. LESSEN YOUR CHANCES OF GETTING POISON IVY-
Immediately after contacting the poisonous plant, gently wipe full-strength vinegar on the affected areas of your skin. The grease-cutting properties of the vinegar will actually cut and remove the oily residue the Poison Ivy plant leaves on your skin. Do not rub the vinegar into your skin. Just wipe it gently on and let it do its stuff!
