How to Clean Your Home Using Lemons

Saving money through useful techniques and getting creative with everyday household items is key. One of the best ways to keep your home looking fresh and sparkling clean is by using lemon which contains citric acid that acts as a sanitizer and also gets rid of all the tough stains in your home. Here are some major lemon hacks that will transform your home at a very low cost instead of spending a whole lot of your money on detergents and disinfectants.

Dishes

Have you ever stored your glasses in the cupboard only to use it later and realize that it has dry water spots? Well, lemon is effective in sanitizing glasses and dishes. Just dice your lemons and squeeze the juice into a mixture of water, salt and vinegar and rinse off your dishes. This will help remove water spots, clean your dishes and avoid potentially toxic chemicals.

Furniture polish

Protect your family and your wood furniture from harsh sprays with a simple lemon oil polish. This easy recipe for wood furniture polish combines three home-care ingredients: vinegar, olive oil and lemon. The vinegar acts as a natural disinfectant, olive oil conditions and polishes wood while the lemon brims with stain-lifting citric acid. Lightly dip a piece of clothing into the polish and use it to gently wipe the surface.

Washing Clothes

Remove stains and whiten your clothes with lemons. You actually don’t need bleaching detergents to have bright clothes, lemon can fix this! Add thinly sliced lemons to a pot of water and bring to boil. Once the water is ready, turn off the heat and then dip in your clothes. Let the clothes sit for an hour before washing like normal.

Showerheads and fixtures

Lemon juice can remove the mineral deposits from your shower head and taps. The lemon breaks down deposits like soap and other build-ups that dull its shine. Cut a lemon in half and scrub the surface with the lemon halves.

Cutting Boards

Fresh lemon juice can be used to kill bacteria that cause odors. Sanitize your cutting board and remove odors with lemon juice and salt. Once you scrub your board with a freshly cut lemon juice and salt, let it sit for 5 minutes before rinsing.

Finally, there might be more ways in which you can use lemon in your home, but these five are our top most favorite lemon hacks. Try them out and you'll be amazed by how organic your home will be.
