Did you know the acid in lemon juice removes dirt and rust, and when mixed with salt, lemons make an excellent scouring paste? Here are a few easy tips using lemons:

  1. To clean counter tops, dip the cut side of a lemon half in baking soda, scrub the counters, wipe with a wet sponge, and dry.

  2. To increase the grease-cutting power of your dish washing detergent, add a teaspoon of lemon juice.

  3. Combat lime scale on your faucets by rubbing lemon juice onto the taps and letting it sit overnight. Wipe with a damp cloth.

  4. To clean your garbage disposal, cut a lemon in half, then run both pieces through the disposal.

  5. when you touch raw fish, the smell can linger on your fingers. Rub your hands with lemon juice, and watch the scent of the fish dissappear.

  6. To brighten laundry whites, add 1/2 cup lemon juice to the rinse cycle for a normal-size load.
