As the presidential race heats up in America, two cleaning products also face-off against each other on Tuesday night in the Great Cleaning Debate. Each candidate has strong stain-fighting power and the science to back it up, but which one is the better cleaning agent? You decide.

“Vinegar. A cleaning agent you can believe in.”
“I want fresh fridges for every home in america”
V: I’m all-natural. They make me from apples, white grapes, sugarcane and coconuts. Vinegar is from the environment and for the environment.
BS: I’m a nontoxic, nonabrasive cleaning agent. Pour me down the drain, dump me in your yard and keep me in the fridge. 1 won’t hurt anyone.
HEALTH & SAFETY
V: I’m basically a walking health benefit. 1 kill bacteria, sooth insect bites and even cure the hiccups. The world is a safer place with vinegar nearby.
BS: I’m so safe, kids can brush their teeth with me. Ever tried brushing your teeth with vinegar? It’s not fun. 1 can also put out grease fires and clean produce!
V: My record speaks for itself – I’m a reliable, safe disinfectant. In fact, a study by Good Housekeeping found me 90 percent effective against mold and 99.9 percent effective against bacteria.
BS: I’m not going to lie to America, the truth is I’m not a strong disinfectant. But 1 am an honest cleaning product. I’ll never lie to you about my cleaning capabilities. Ever.
V: Nobody fights a urine stain better than me. And if you count rust as a stain, which I do, I’m pretty fantastic at removing that, too.
BS: This is where I come out ahead. Rub me into any wine, vomit or coffee stain. I’ll remove it. Give me a stain, I’ll give you a solution.
V: My opponent will try to burn me on this issue, but Baking Soda’s accusations are baseless. No matter where you use me, that vinegar smell will dissipate in just a few minutes.
BS: Not only am I essentially odor-less, but I actually absorb other pungent smells like it’s my job. Just try sprinkling a little bit of me in your trash can. You won’t regret it.
V: I’ve been in the trenches fighting for democracy (I was used to trat wounds in WWI). I’ll never stop fighting for America, or for clean countertops.
BS: They used me to clean the Statue of Libert for her 100th birthday, and her copper never shined so bright. It doesn’t get any more patriotic than that.
