The Power of Lemon Aid

If you're searching for a powerful, environmentally friendly cleaner that can tackle virtually any household chore, look no further than the lowly lemon.  Here are just a few ways that lemons can make your home sparkle:

  • To remove carpet stains, soak with lemon juice for 15 to 30 minutes then rinse and blot.

  • If your countertops are stained, just leave lemon juice on the stains until they’re gone.

  • To clean copper, dip half a lemon in salt and rub it over the copper surface, rinse and dry.

  • Mix lemon juice with baking soda to easily clean kitchen and bathroom surfaces.

  • To clean the microwave, heat a bowl of water and sliced lemons in the microwave for a few minutes before wiping down with a cloth.

Lemons are an excellent alternative to toxic cleansers plus they'll fill your home with a refreshing citrus scent!  A great tip for squeezing as much juice as possible from your lemons is to microwave them for 30 seconds, wait a minute, then cut and squeeze.
