A twist on Lemon

Lemon it’s more than just Lemonade it’s Lemon/Aid… Sorry about the terrible pun but it’s true lemon has so many uses you didn’t know about. That is until now!

Got a gungy cutting board, worried about germs? Fear not just rub salt into it with a wedge of lemon and wave goodbye to bacteria and hello to a wonderful smelling cutting board.

Gotta clean that grater but want to keep the skin on your knuckles? I figured this one out accidentally, just rub a wedge of lemon on that sucker and it’ll be clean in no time.

Ever get an ink stain on a shirt? or on the carpet or on the couch, thanks kids… Well it’s easy to get rid of, take cream of tartar and mix with lemon juice until it’s the consistency of toothpaste, then let it sit on the stain for a few minutes and it’s gone!

Ever get sticky rice, or hard rice well if you want fluffy rice then add a tablespoon of lemon in the water or more if you like the taste and the rice will fluff right up!

Wilty lettuce got you down? That stuff never lasts very long but if your sandwich won’t be complete without it try this on for size. stick it in a bowl of ice water and a table spoon of lemon let it sit, but not too long 15 minutes oughta do it.

Ever cut beats on your cutting board and it ends up looking like a murder scene? get those stains out with lemon pour it on and let sit for 30 minutes then rinse all that mess away. (Good for any cutting board stain)

Shower curtain all black with mildew? Use hot water to get most of it off then instead of scrubbing just spray on some lemon and leave it out in the sun. It’s just like new!

Lemon juice is a great glass cleaner too!

Ever get winter dandruff? just mix some lemon juice with warm water and pour over your head in the shower before you get out, let it dry onto your head naturally and no more itch.

If anyone has a fire place use lemon peel as kindling the oil in it will keep the fire going and it smells fantastic.

That’s all for now,
