Summer Lemons

Summer is here and so are the lemons. Lemons can be used for so many great things other than lemonade and cooking.  There are several ways lemons can be used in our households for cleaning purposes.

  • Nasty odors coming from the sink? Cut a lemon in quarters and place down the drain with a handful of baking soda. While cold water is running, turn on the garbage disposal to start the cleaning process. This will leave your sink smelling fresh and clean. More
  • Is the microwave dirty? Take one cup of water and 4 tablespoons of lemon juice, place in a bowl and heat in the microwave for 5 minutes. The steam will make the microwave wipe clean. More
  • Ink spots on clothing? Squeeze a  large amount of lemon juice to the stain as soon as possible and wash with cold water. More
  • Humidifier doesn’t smell fresh? Add 3-4 tablespoons of lemon juice to the water to freshen. More
  • Hardwood furniture need polishing? Mix equal parts of lemon juice and olive oil, apply to a cloth and polish away. More
  • Cutting board smell? Cut a lemon in half and rub on the cutting board to eliminate the smells of garlic and onion. More
  • Berry stains? To remove berry stains from your skin rinse with lemon juice. More
  • Whites need brightening? Instead of using bleach on white clothing, add 1/2 cup of lemon juice to a normal load for a freshened look. More

Use those lemons!
