I have a lemon tree with many lemons. Can I clean a bathtub safely with lemon juice and baking soda? Any other uses for the lemons? Thank you.

I would think that of anything to clean with, lemon juice and baking soda would not harm the surface. You could try a tiny dab on a spot, then wipe off to see what happens, before going all out with major cleaning.

Lucky, lucky you. When I worked in a restaurant we cleaned our glass coffee pots with lemon slices, salt and ice cubes, just sloshed around.
Can clean copper with 1/2 lemon and salt. Left over lemon slices in garbage disposal. Lemon halves on rust stains on enamel. Lemon and baking soda where baking soda is barely damp to clean any dried on grease [stove rings after grandson cooks] or any surface I think.
There's a show called How Clean Is Your House? by BBC America, which uses lemon a lot, for various things.
Anything using vinegar could probably use lemon. Rinsing hair after shampoo and letting dry with lemon on it in a sunny area will give blond highlights.
You can slice your lemons and salt them down in a jar, and keep lidded in fridge for cooking [roast chicken/salmon/shrimp, and so on]. Rinse lightly and place on chicken breasts or whatever. You could make lemon marmalade and give for gifts. I love lemons.
I like to make fruit smoothies with spinach or other green vegetable added. Whenever I add so much greens that the taste isn't what I want, I add half a lemon and the green taste is gone. Lucky you, I echo the previous post, lucky you!
Thank you so much for your input on cleaning stuff with lemon juice/baking soda-lemon juice does smell better than than vinegar. If I may-does anyone know how to clean the bathtub faucet/showerhead/drain from the white calcium?buildup and any non fume ways to clean the bathtub?Thank you much-Pamela
