Cleaning with LemonsIf you're looking for natural alternatives to household cleaning products, here's an interesting secret. It's all in the lemon! The lemon contains acids that can remove stains and rusty spots in your kitchen utensils and dishes. Try out your lemon cleaning skills on these things:
Countertops - Try dripping some lemon in baking soda on countertops then wipe with a damp sponge and dry. Do not use on marble, stainless steel or delicate stone.
Cutting boards - Remove undesirable stains from your wooden cutting boards and utensils with lemon juice. Lemon juice is a natural bleach and deodorizer. Cut a lemon in half, rub the juice on the board and let it sit for 20 minutes. Dry with cloth.
Dishes - Add a teaspoon of lemon juice to your dishwashing detergent to fight grease-covered dishes.
Faucets - Get rid of that lime scale by rubbing some lemon juice on water fixtures and letting it sit overnight.
Garbage disposal - Throw some pieces of lemon through the disposal to replace any unwanted odors with that fresh lemon smell.
