Homemade Cleaning Solutions-LEMONS

Lemon juice is another natural substance that can be used to clean your home.
  • Lemon juice can be used to dissolve soap scum and hard water deposits.
  • Lemon is a great substance to clean and shine brass and copper.
  • 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.
  • Mix 1 cup olive oil with ½ cup lemon juice and you have a furniture polish for your hardwood furniture.
  • My favorite use for the fruit is to put a whole lemon peel through the garbage disposal. It freshens the drain and the kitchen. Orange peels can be used with the same results.
