I love lemons in my sweet tea! I love them in ice water!
Recently, in an effort to go green and do things to help the environment, I am now using lemons for another purpose. Cleaning!
Lemon juice can be used to dissolve soap scum and hard water deposits.
Lemon juice can be mixed with vinegar and or baking soda to make cleaning pastes. Cut a lemon in half and sprinkle baking soda on the cut section. Use the lemon to scrub dishes, surfaces, and stains. A natural fresh smelling alternative- that's what lemons are!
Furniture polish tips......Mix 1 cup olive oil with ½ cup lemon juice excellent for hardwood floors! And it smells good, too!
My favorite use for the fruit is to slice the whole lemon and place in a bowl of water, then place the mixture in the microwave. Turn the microwave on for 2 minutes, remove the bowl and wipe clean. This makes the house smell fresh and removes food residue from the microwave.
Another use is to peel and run the garbage disposal. This freshens the drain and the kitchen. Orange peels can be used with the same results.
