Cleaning your home with Lemons



Here are some handy home hacks to clean your home the natural way using Lemons.  Lemons smell gorgeous and can really help improve shine.  Its really surprising how well they can clean your home.

Wooden Chopping Board

You can clean your wooden cutting board with half a lemon and a little coarse salt. All you have to do is cut a lemon in half and sprinkle the salt over the chopping board. Then with the lemon facing downwards simply scour the surface of the chopping board, squeezing slightly to release the lemon juice as you go. Let sit for about 15 minutes to give the lemon and salt some time to work, Then scrap away any lemon bits and rinse with warm water and a clean sponge or cloth.

Limescale

Lemon is great at tackling limescale. For limescale that is on your taps, very simply cut your lemon in half and run the lemon all over the tap where the limescale is present. Leave the lemon on the tap for a while so that it can get to work and then rinse away. You may need to repeat this process.

For your kettle just pop a few used lemon halves into the kettle, fill with water and boil. Leave overnight, and boil again in the morning before emptying. Give it a quick rinse to remove any bits.

 

Microwave

Put a few lemon half’s in a bowl of clean cold water in the microwave and then put the microwave on full power for 5 minutes.  The lemon will release the grease which will make it really easy to wipe of with a cloth.
