Lemons are the Less Thought of Fruit
You have to admit when you think of having a nice piece of fruit, lemons do not come to mind. Like you, I don’t want to peel a piece of fruit and have a sour experience. It would make me sweat I think just as sucking on a slice of lemon. But there are so many other uses for lemons besides using them for baking and cooking.
7 Cleaning Tips Using Lemons
1. Refresh Your Cutting Board(s)
I have noticed when I use my cutting board after slicing onions it is hard to get the smell out of it. I have scrubbed with dishh soap with no luck. Lemon juice is the only thing that has seemed to help get that terrible smell out.
2. Wash Your Fruits and Vegetables
Much of the produce we purchase (unless it is organic) has a chance to have unknown and unwanted pesticides. The risk of ingesting these chemicals should be avoided. You can spray your vegetables and fruit with lemon before you rinse them off. The antibacterial properties and citric acid combine to create a potent lifting solution.
Lemon is a great natural disinfectant that is incredibly effective, but won’t harm produce or change the taste. Dry with a soft cloth, and enjoy!
3. Prevent Cauliflower and Apples from Turning Brown
Cauliflower can turn brown even if you only just boil it for a few seconds.
To keep this from happening, add a few drops of lemon juice to the water and watch your cauliflower stay as brightly colored as when you bought it.
4. Keep your Vegetables Crisp and Bright
Even though the weather outside is turning cooler does not mean that your vegetables will too. If anything, as the weather gets fresher, the vegetables that you can buy at the market tend to be less so.
Work to keep your produce in tip-top shape even in the midst of winter by squeezing a bit of lemon juice on them once you’ve chopped them up.
5. Lemon Helps to Deter Insects
Insects in your kitchen are the last thing that you want, so prevent an infestation before it even starts. You can spray your windowsills, baseboards, and the entrance to cupboards. It also helps if you cut the lemon juice with white vinegar for an added boost.
Ants, spiders, and cockroaches are highly sensitive to smell so if you spray the areas that they tend to appear in, you will deter them from even trying to cross your threshold.
6. Stain Removal
Just about any kind of stain – red wine, mildew, berries, or grease – can be removed with an application of lemon juice and salt. For dirtier surfaces, scrub the mixture in and work to remove the stain. For an added help, add a touch of baking soda to the paste.
On more delicate surfaces, let the paste rest and soak up the stain. Once you wipe everything off, the stain should wash out easily.
7. Clean Glass and Remove Stains
You will have to choose the amount of fresh lemon juice that you need to clean based on the state of your windows. The dirtier they are, the more you will need to use. This is a great task for leftover lemon halves you might have cooking.
For everyday window cleaning, mix several tablespoons of lemon juice into a cup of water and then spray it on the glass. Wipe off the liquid with newspaper for an ultra-clear, streak-free shine.
