When Life Gives You Lemons….Clean!

Cleaning your home with lemons is a very natural and green way to clean, but does it work?

Of course!

Lemons are natural disinfectants and stain removers.  They are also inexpensive and eco-friendly.  Here are some ways to use lemons when cleaning your home.

When cleaning lime scale off of faucets, rub lemon juice onto the taps and let it sit overnight.  Wipe using a damp cloth.

Add a teaspoon of lemon juice to your dishwashing detergent to help cut grease.

When cleaning with vinegar, if the smell bothers you, add some lemon juice to the vinegar to lessen the smell.

Clean those tupperware stains by squeezing lemon juice in the container and then adding baking soda.  For tougher stains, let the lemon soak in the container overnight.

To get odors off your hands, neutralize the odor by rubbing lemon juice on them.

For a good drain cleaner, mix lemon juice and baking soda together and pour down drain.

To bleach your white laundry with lemons, mix a half cup of lemon juice with one gallon hot water.  Soak clothes.  Use only with cotton or polyester clothes.  Let clothes soak for at least an hour.
