Is Aunt Fannie’s Cleaning Vinegar non-toxic?
Yes, our vinegars are entirely non-toxic! In fact, all ingredients in our cleaning vinegars are food grade, meaning you can clean your countertops AND your veggies!
How do I use cleaning vinegar?
Spray, mist or mop Aunt Fannie’s Cleaning Vinegar products on surfaces in your kitchen, on floors, countertops and windows (vinegar cleans just about anything!). Wipe with a cloth, mop or sponge.
Safety Tip! NEVER mix bleach + vinegar. It produces chlorine gas which even at low levels is majorly toxic.
Are there any surfaces I should think about avoiding with vinegar?
- Marble countertops can be ‘scratched’ by the naturally occurring acid in vinegar.
- Just like countertops, natural stone floors don’t always take kindly to acidic cleaners, like vinegar and lemon. Avoid ammonia, too, and stick to cleaning with special stone soap, or dish detergent and water.
How long do Aunt Fannie’s Cleaning Vinegar products stay fresh?
Aunt Fannie’s Cleaning Vinegars are shelf stable for up to 2 years, although we hope you love them so much that you use them much more often!

Floor Cleaner Vinegar Wash
Is your Floor Cleaner Vinegar Wash Concentrate non-toxic?
Yes, our floor cleaner is non-toxic. We know kids and pets lick EVERYthing, including the floor, so it was important for us to create a formula that was safe.
How do I use Floor Cleaner Vinegar Wash Concentrate?
Mix ½ cup (4 oz.) of Aunt Fannie’s Floor Cleaner into 2 gallons of water. Soak mop head in solution as appropriate. Repeat as necessary.
What kind of floors can I clean with Aunt Fannie’s Floor Cleaner?
While vinegar can tackle a majority of the household, there are some areas to avoid. Do not use vinegar to clean stone floors. Also, while some wood floors LOVE vinegar, others don’t, so it’s important to test a small inconspicuous spot first before you tackle the whole room.
Is FlyPunch! safe?
Yes! FlyPunch! is effective against fruit flies and completely safe when used as directed.
How do I use FlyPunch!?
Open the DiveJar flip top and remove the seal. Place your jar where fruit flies are most prevalent. For home, it’s typically on a kitchen counter, near the fruit bowl, or near a sink. For commercial use, it can be near sinks, trashcans, liquor storage, dining rooms, near food prep and beyond – both in the front and back of the establishment.
NOTE: Drain flies and gnats look a LOT like fruit flies so it’s easy to mistake one for the other. If you have flies near a drain, please double check to ensure that they are really fruit flies and not drain flies. If you have flies near a potted plant, please check to be sure they are really fruit flies and not gnats.
So what does a fruit fly look like?
Fruit flies can be identified by their red or black eyes and brown bodies. FlyPunch! sometimes catches other fly types that can be mistaken as fruit flies, but those are… bonus points!
