There’s a good old saying that says “when life gives you lemons you make lemonade.” However recent findings have revealed that lemons are versatile objects that do more than quench your thirst on a hot summer day. Lemons are high in acid which makes them a perfect all-natural cleaning solution. Here are some quick and different ways you can use a lemon to clean your house and make it smell good!
Garbage Disposal: Cut the lemon in half and toss it in the garbage disposal, by doing so it cleans in the inside and leaves a fresh scent.
Countertops: Take a lemon wedge and dip it in baking soda and tackle the stains on the countertops, after take a wet sponge and wipe your countertops. Make sure not to use on delicate countertops such as marble.
Faucets: To get rid of lime scale, rub lime juice all over the faucet and let it set overnight and wipe it with a damp towel.
Grout: Remove grout stains by adding lemon juice to 1-2 teaspoons cream of tartar. Mix it well and it will make a paste, apply it to where ever the grout is and brush it with an old toothbrush, then rinse and wipe.
Clean Hardwood Floors & Furniture: By using half a cup of lemon juice mixed with one cup of olive oil you have a homemade furniture polish.
Mold Remover: Get rid of nasty mold with one part lemon juice to one part baking soda and apply the paste onto the mold. Leave it for about 2 hours or so and rinse it off.
Microwave Cleaner: Take half a lemon and put it into a bowl of cold water and microwave for 3 minutes. This will not only leave your microwave smelling better but it will make it easier to wipe the inside of the microwave.
