Tip: Use Squeezed Lemons For Kitchen Cleanup

After I have squeezed a lemon for a recipe, I take the two lemon halves and rub them on the countertop to clean all the stains off it. I then throw the lemon halves into the garbage disposal and turn it on to have a sweet smelling and clean counter and garbage disposal.

If you boil something in lemon juice does it work to get rid of mold and mildew? Is that true?

Cinnamon oil. The stuff is expensive, but powerful. If you can figure out a way to spray a thin layer on the canvas, it will totally destroy any mold and leave everything smelling strongly of cinnamon.

A friend gave me a bottle of lemon juice that was outdated. I used it for a cleaner the same way I use vinegar, but it smells better. It makes a good rinsing agent in the washing machine to get out excess soap (put it in the softener cup). It also can be used in the dishwasher instead of dish soap for one of the cycles. I didn't try it on windows, but it should work as well as vinegar.

RE: Cleaning With Lemon Juice

I used lemon juice and water to mop the floors (old wood with no varnish left on them). With kids and unvarnished floors they get really stained, really fast. I tried everything to get them pretty again. One day I found a bottle of outdated lemon juice and decided to use it to mop as more of a freshening agent, but to my surprise my house not only smelled wonderful, my ugly wood floors were pretty again.

The only show worth watching on Lifetime, is "How Clean Is Your House?" The ladies tested the dust off of a ceiling fan and it was positive for penicillin spores, which can cause lung cancer if breathed in over long periods of time, and they recommended cleaning it off with an old sock and lemon juice. The lemon kills the microbes/spores, so I do that at least once a month now. (09/04/2006)

I used it to clean a permanent marker stain. And it worked the best. I was out of Shout, 409, and hairspray. (04/01/2008)

RE: Cleaning Plants With Lemon Juice

We are Dutch Lily growers established in Spain. Our Lilies were very dusty and with a lot of clay on the foliage. We sprayed with Lemon acid (granulate) and after only one treatment, the foliage was clean and shiny as a new car. (12/15/2008)

RE: Cleaning With Lemon Juice

I use lemon juice on my stainless pots, pans, and my stainless steel sink. It makes it shine like new. You can add salt to the lemon juice for stubborn stains and it will not scratch. Baking soda is also good for stainless steel sinks and brass bottom pots, too. (03/05/2009)
