PostSubject: Uses for Lemon Peels   Sun Mar 26, 2017 3:38 pm

Lemons have a high concentration of citric acid, which is great for general disinfecting and cleaning. The citric acid in lemons can help kill bacteria and mold, and also remove soap scum and mineral deposits.


Clean your stainless steel:
Simply sprinkle some sea salt on the metal, and then use the lemon peel to scrub away any dirt, grime, or stains. Rinse and dry!

Clean sinks and bathtubs:

Sprinkle baking soda into a wet sink or bathtub, and use the cut side of a lemon to scrub these surfaces. This method will remove grime, act as a lemony “bleach,” and make sinks and bathtubs shine.

Make dishes sparkle:

Lemon not only acts as a degreaser, but the citric acid found in lemon also helps remove spots from dishes. Throw lemon rinds with the pulp into your dish water to help remove grease and make glasses and silverware sparkle.

Clean your microwave:
Add lemon rinds to a microwave-safe bowl filled halfway with water. Cook on high for five minutes, allowing the water to boil and the steam to condense on the walls and tops of the oven. Remove the hot bowl (carefully!) and wipe away the mess with a towel. Yes.

Sanitise your cutting board:
Lemon’s natural acidity provides great antibacterial properties to home cleaning. After properly cleaning your cutting boards, rub the surface with half a lemon. Let it sit for a couple of minutes before rinsing.

Lemon All Purpose Cleaner:
Also known as lemon vinegar, this stuff is awesome at cutting grease and disinfecting. To make, simply place a bunch of lemon peels in any sized glass jar (mason jars) would work great). Pour white vinegar over. Put the lid on and let it sit for 2 weeks (it’s worth the wait). Then strain the liquid. Combine this with water (using a 50/50 ratio) and then use to clean countertops, sinks, toilets, spills, stovetops, or other surfaces.

Start seeds indoors:

If you have lemons that were cut in half and juiced, you can use those lemon “cups” to start seeds indoors. Poke a few holes in the bottom of the lemon if desired (for drainage), fill the lemon halves with soil, and plant your tiny seeds in them. This entire lemon cup can be planted outdoors in the spring.

I only read yesterday that rubbing lemon peel on your teeth regularly makes them whiter.  I have started doing that as with wine, tea and coffee they aren't the best.  So while I watch t.v. I rub away certainly makes them squeaky clean just waiting for them to go a better shade of white.

I also put a lemon about once a month down my Kitchen gurgler it is supposed to kill germs.

Yes I've heard that too Joy but be careful though as too much citric acid in lemons can damage the tooth enamel!
