Cleaning With Lemons And Olives

Valencia, Spain (no date)

A drop of lemon, say citrus-fruit experts who have been meeting here in annual conference, can:

  1. Remove tea spots from table linens.
  2. Advertisement

  3. Remove rust, especially from clothing.
  4. Clean a rusty knife or blade.
  5. Remove an ink spot from ivory.
  6. Polish a calf handbag or belt.
  7. Bleach a marble fireplace.

Olive dealers who were gathered in another part of town promptly added that with a few drops of oil you can:

  1. Clean objects of mother of pearl.
  2. Remove spots from linoleum.
  3. Clean bronze objects (if the oil is mixed with a little vinegar).

Now this is definitely an old article, Vi, because it mentions ivory and calf handbags and belts. I find the olive oil to remove linoleum stains really intriguing!


We have to find someone with a linoleum stain to test it because that would be a great help to a lot of people if it works! :-)
