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