Maid Brigade customers know that green cleaning is a safe and healthy alternative to traditional cleaning products and still leaves your home sparkling. For our do-it-yourself customers we’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite “recipes” for cleaning with lemon juice. The best part? These recipes can be concocted in your own kitchen and they’re all green! When you can’t call Maid Brigade for your last minute house cleaning needs, you can still green your clean.
Mix together hot lemon juice and baking soda and you’ve made a good drain cleaner that’s safe for septic systems.
It’s important to make sure cutting boards are thoroughly sanitized, especially when you’ve been dealing with meat. For an antibacterial clean, rub lemon juice into your cutting board, leave overnight and then rinse. Wood cutting boards appear to have anti-bacterial properties anyway, but the lemon will help kill off any remaining germs plus neutralize odors.
Spray fresh lemon juice on hard water scale build-up near faucets. Rinse after 10 minutes.
Heat a bowl of water and lemon slices in your microwave for about 45 seconds, then wipe. Stains will be easier to remove and old food odors will be neutralized.
Half a lemon stored in your fridge, uncovered, will help control and eliminate unpleasant smells.
