When life hands you lemons, use them!
Lemons are an incredible fruit and should be a staple in everyone’s home. They are more than just for eating, however. Lemons can be used to clean your home. Just why do you think people clean with them? Because they are an amazing disinfectant! Your cleaning service in Blue Bell and surrounding areas knows this too.
The team at Executive Maids is going to share some tried and true tips for using lemons to clean around your house. The professionals of the cleaning world approve of these methods so when your maid service isn’t at your house, you can try these tricks in between cleaning days.
Clean your microwave
This is an easy way to clean the entire inside of the microwave. Cut a lemon in half and put it in a microwave-safe bowl with water. Microwave on high for five minutes. Not only does it leave your microwave smelling fresh but the steam with loosen grease and dried-on food. Wipe off with a cloth.
Freshen the garbage disposal
Place one lemon, cut into quarters, in the disposal with ice while running the water. This will leave your disposal smelling fresh. The ice helps keep the blades sharp.
Make your own air freshener
Mix the strained juice of one lemon, a few drops of lemon essential oil and water in a spray bottle. Instant spray air freshener!
All purpose cleanser
To make an all-natural household disinfectant, combine ¼ cup white vinegar, two tablespoons baking soda and four cups of hot water. Stir to dissolve and then add ½ lemon plus the rinds to infuse into the cleanser. Allow to cool and then transfer into a spray bottle. Your cleaner is ready to use!
Remember that damp shirt that was left at the bottom of the clothes hamper? Yeah, it’s probably got mildew on it now. Don’t throw the shirt away, remove the mildew. To remove, rub the shirt with a paste of lemon juice and salt. Dry it in the sunlight. Repeat until the mildew is gone.
Mix one part strained lemon juice with two parts olive oil. Apply to wood furniture with a soft cloth. Rub gently in the direction of the wood grain and allow to dry.
For your hair
Lemons are great for many things, why not your hair? To make your hair shinier, rinse it using the strained juice of one lemon and eight to twelve ounces of warm water.
Of course, the best way to use lemons is to make a soothing, refreshing pitcher of lemonade! After the cleaning is done, pour yourself a glass, sit back and relax. Be proud of all the work you did around your house with lemons!
