Everyone is familiar with using lemons in their desserts or drinks. From making lemon cake, lemon pie or even lemonade, chances are, you’ve eating a lemon or two in your lifetime. But have you ever thought about the other uses for lemons besides desserts and drinks? Lemons can be used for those everyday problems that you probably never thought about. Let’s take a look at some ways to use lemons to help make your life a bit easier.
If your in a rush and forgot to buy some deodorant, you can use lemon juice. Just cut a lemon in half and rub it under your arms. The citric acid in lemon juice will help kill any odor causing bacteria.
Clean and Whiten Nails
You can clean and whiten your nails just by using lemons. Just add the juice of 1/2 lemon to 1 cup warm water and soak your fingertips in the lemon mixture for about 5 minutes. After you push back your cuticles, rub some lemon peel back and forth against your nails.
Freshen Garbage Disposal
You can get rid of that awful garbage disposal smell by throwing some lemon rinds, turning the disposal on, and flush it with water.
Cleaning supplies can be very expensive. You can clean your microwave the natural way by slicing a lemon in half and squeeze the juice into 1.5 cups of water. Drop the lemon halves into the bowl. Cook the water on high for 5 minutes. This will allow the water to boil and the steam to condense on the walls and tops of the microwave. Carefully remove the hot bowl and wipe away any dirt with a wet sponge.
