Mix this onion juice with 2 tablespoons of white vinegar and dab the mixture onto the brown spots twice a day. This combination should fade the brown spots over time. Note: the mixture can be made in any amount as long as it’s a ratio of 1 part onion juice: 2 parts white vinegar.
Soak a clean washcloth in white vinegar and place it on your forehead. Be sure to wring it out! Relax for 30 minutes and the headache should be gone.

Instead of using somewhat expensive prescription medication that may cause unwanted side effects, apply white vinegar to toenails or soak feet in a strong solution of white vinegar and water. You can even use straight vinegar to soak your feet if you have enough.
Dry Itchy Skin
Soak in a bathtub of warm (not hot) water to which you have added ½ cup white vinegar. Vinegar will eliminate the itch, soften the skin and will help keep your bathtub cleaner.
Spray white vinegar on the burn and it should relieve the pain almost immediately. If you don’t have a spray bottle, soak a washcloth in vinegar and apply to the affected area. If the vinegar is chilled, it will relieve the pain and burning sensation even faster.
