Lemons are useful for cleaning on top of just enjoying as a snack or using as an ingredient in all types of foods. Cleaning with lemons can also act as a mild disinfectant, as well.
Here are three different ways that you can use lemons for cleaning around your home.
*Measure ½ a cup of water into a measuring cup
*Slice half a lemon and squeeze the juice into the water
*Place both halves of the lemon into the water
*Microwave on high for three minutes
*Let stand for an additional five minutes without opening the door
*Open the door and remove the measuring cup
*If the microwave has a turntable, remove it and wipe it down
Wooden Cutting Board
*Slice a lemon in half
*Sprinkle coarse salt onto the cutting board
*Scour the surface using the lemon, ensuring that you lightly squeeze some juice out as you do
*Let the board sit for five minutes
*Scrape away the liquid into a small bowl with a bench scraper
*Rinse the board with a wet, clean sponge
All-Purpose Kitchen Cleaner
*Save citrus peels
*Place the peels into a jar of vinegar for two weeks
*Strain the liquid
*Pour the liquid into a spray bottle
