Green cleaning has become quite popular in the past years. There are some ordinary products that can help you clean a lot of things. One of those products is lemon. These are the most popular uses of lemon in the house. It is much cheaper than all the commercial products and it works much better than them. Here are some ideas how to clean with lemons:
To clean your microwave, take a cup of water and put in some drops of lemon juice. “Cook” the water for 3-4 minutes, until it starts steaming and then leave it in the microwave for another 5 minutes. After that just wipe clean the walls of the microwave. The steam brakes the build ups and makes them much easier for cleaning.
Remove all the tough stains from your cutting board by sprinkling baking soda over them and then rub it in with a piece of lemon. This will also help you with odours if there are any.
Make a paste of salt and lemon juice to clean and shine your sink.
Put lemon pieces regularly in the garbage disposal, this will freshen it up.
To remove all the food odours from your fridge, dab a cotton ball with lemon juice and put it inside. It will absorb the odours.
Use lemons to scrub your hands after cooking onion, garlic or fish. This will remove any odours from your skin.
If you want to clean your sink and your tiles, tile cleaning Melbourne say that you can use lemon again. Just pour some directly on the stain and then launder in cold water.
If you want to polish your chrome facets, use a paste of baking soda and lemon juice. You can use the same paste to shine your aluminium pans. Works every time.
If you add a little lemon juice to your laundry detergent, it will make your white laundry whiter.
There is also an extra benefit of using lemon for cleaning – it is eco-friendly and it replaces all the chemical cleaners. This way we help our environment.
