Other Great Lemon Uses
After you've seen this Lemon Dessert Roundup, you'll be inclined to rush out and buy a whole bunch of lemons! If you find yourself with some leftover, here're some great tips on how to use lemons for other purposes.
- Use half of a sliced lemon to clean your cutting board. Rub the lemon over the cutting board and allow it to soak in for about 30 minutes before rinsing.
- Once you've squeezed all the juice from a lemon, don't throw out the rinds. Drop one or two down your kitchen sink's garbage disposal and give it a whirl. It helps to clean the blades, not to mentioned it helps to eliminate odors that have built up.
- They can help loosen gunk that has built up in your microwave. Boil a large cup of water with lemon juice, or leftover rinds, for several minutes. It really helps remove cooked food splatters and gives your microwave a really fresh and clean smell
- Bleach can be so harsh on white clothing or other linens. To get your whites whiter with out chemicals, try this instead. Add some water to a large pot. Throw in a few lemon slices, and bring to a full rolling boil. Turn off heat then carefully add your linens. Let them soak until the water has completely cooled, then continue with laundering them as usual .
- You can use them to make an all purpose, non toxic house hold cleaner. Boil lemon peels and vinegar until it reaches a boil. Turn off the heat and let it cool. Add the mixture to a plastic spray bottle and fill the rest of the bottle with water. Shake it up and use on any hard kitchen surface like counter tops or bathroom surfaces.
