Lemons are so versatile! Not only for cooking, but cleaning too. There are many recipes out there using lemons for all types of domestic cleaning, but I'll just share a couple of my favourites here.
TAP AND FAUCET CLEANSER
CLEANING THE MICROWAVE
Mix the juice of one lemon with an equal quantity of water into a large microwave safe bowl. Zap on HIGH for around 3 to 5 minutes. Remove the bowl and wipe the microwave clean with a damp cloth. Your kitchen will smell lovely and fresh after doing this too!
This recipe came from Just Like My Nan Made - from the Australian Womens Weekly. I haven't tried it yet but I have started the mix. Just pour vinegar into a wide mouthed jar and add citrus peel as you eat it. I only 3/4 filled mine with vinegar to allow room for the citrus peel and would say you just stop adding peel when it gets reasonably full. Leave for two weeks, strain and then pour into a spray bottle.
Using lemons for cleaning is a cheap, chemical free and effective way to clean. We really don't need all of those products that line the supermarket shelves... the companies just make us think we do with clever marketing. For example the other day I noticed there are disposable wipes to clean your stainless steel appliances with....are they serious???? Just wipe over your stainless steel appliance with a damp cloth then wipe with a microfibre cloth...done...and the results are amazing!
