Most of us love our lemons in lemonade, or lemon meringue pie, or maybe in our water! But did you know there are countless ways to use lemons, and many have nothing to do with cooking?
Here are 10 different ways you can use lemons in your home that you might have never known about!
Things to do with Lemons!
Use a Lemon to Clean Your Microwave
Cut a lemon in half and squeeze the juice into a microwaveable bowl half filled with water. Add rinds to bowl and microwave for 4 minutes. Wipe down the inside of the microwave with a cloth or sponge!
Freshen Stinky Breath
Ditch the chemicals in store bought mouth wash, and gargle with fresh lemon juice each morning to combat bad breath!
The easiest way to clean cheese graters is by simply running a cut lemon over the surface because the lemon juice cuts the fat residue from the grater with ease.
Freshen Up Smelly Trashcans
Throw a few lemon rinds into the trashcan every so often to keep it smelling fresh.
If your nails get stained from time to time by using nail polish, slicing a lemon and rubbing it on your nails helps to brighten and whiten them!
Get Perfect Rice
Add 1 tsp of lemon juice when cooking rice helps it to be nice and fluffy without stickiness every time!
Many insects, including ants, hate the smell of lemon! Just spray areas prone to ants with lemon juice to help keep them at away.
Start Your Day with a Detox
Starting the day with a tall glass of water and lemon juice helps detox your liver and is great for digestion!
Deodorize Your Fridge
We’ve all been told to keep a box of baking soda in the fridge but lemon peels do the trick just as well!
Lighten Age Spots
Dabbing some lemon juice on age spots and leaving it for 15 minutes before washing off can help lighten them!
