6 Ways To Use Lemon For Cleaning

Commercial cleaning agents get the job done but at the cost of side effects from harmful toxins, which include even poisoning worst circumstances. It makes sense to make a switch to natural and healthier options for cleaning, which are also eco-friendly. Speaking of natural, how about lemon, the all-purpose cleaner?

Lemons, beyond their culinary uses, pack a punch in the cleaning department. Here are six ways lemon can help you in your cleanliness goals.

Lemon’s zesty scent is a natural odor neutralizer.

For drains plagued with unpleasant smells, pour the juice of a single lemon down the sink. And for a fresher garbage bin, after sprinkling baking soda and letting it sit for 10 minutes, rub its insides with half a lemon before slotting in a new garbage bag. You’ll notice an immediate transformation.

Thanks to its acidity, lemon juice easily breaks down grease.

For fresh-smelling, stain-free laundry, add half a cup of lemon juice to your white wash cycle. Need to degrease your kitchen? Half a lemon can be your scrubbing companion for dishes, countertops, ovens, and even cutting boards.


Lemon’s non-residual quality makes it perfect for shiny surfaces.

A concoction of half a gallon of water with a ¼ cup of lemon juice will leave your glassware gleaming. For smudged windows or mirrors, a dab of lemon juice on a microfiber cloth will do the trick, leaving behind a pleasant aroma.

Our hands can get smelly.

Especially after handling ingredients like garlic, onions, or fish. To naturally neutralize these odors, simply rub your hands with a piece of lemon peel.

Need to tackle grime in pots or shower fixtures?

Mix ½ cup of lemon juice with two glasses of water. For pots, let it sit for 10-15 minutes, bring to a boil, and scrub away the residue. For shower fixtures, rub with half a lemon, let it rest for 10 minutes, then scrub.

Yellowish stains on your porcelain bathtub or sink?

A combination of lemon and salt can come to the rescue. Sprinkle salt on the surface and use half a lemon as a natural scrubber. The lemon acts as a bleach, while the salt aids in dirt removal.

Adding lemons into your cleaning regimen is not only eco-friendly but also effective. With these simple DIY lemon-based solutions, your home will be spotless, and you can sleep well knowing that you’ve achieved this without resorting to harsh chemicals. Embrace the lemon – nature’s gift to clean living.
