When Life Hands You Lemons...

You Can Do A Whole Bunch Of Stuff!

Turns out there are like a bazillion ways to use lemons and their juice. Who knew! They can clean, deodorize, and heal what ails you! Some of the more interesting ones are below, but check out the links at the bottom for more ideas.

Don't forget to buy organic if you can, and stock up, they last in the fridge for about a month!

1.)Add a few drop to your steam iron to freshen fabrics as you iron and clean the iron at the same time!

2.)Cut a lemon in half and dip it into salt for a natural scouring pad for pots, sinks, or any grubby metal surface.

3.)Make a refreshing foot scrub by making a paste of brown sugar and lemon juice or mix papaya pulp and lemon juice to cure athlete's foot.

4.) Add 4 tablespoons of lemon juice to a cup of water and microwave on high for 5 minutes. Then wipe the inside to clean and deodorize the microwave.

5.) A common skin cure...rub a lemon on your poison ivy, sunburn, or bug bites to relieve itching and promote healing...and cheaper than all the creams at the store!
