Try using them like this:
- As a stain remover. Tea stains in particular respond to a mild soap solution boosted with lemon juice. It also works on stains from coffee, blood, and ketchup, on clothing, plastic, cutting boards and furniture.
- To speed up your metabolism. The acids in a glass of lemonade each day helps stomach acids break down food even better – and faster. Over time it will increase the efficiency of your digestion and increase your metabolic rate.
- To shine china and metal (especially copper). Mix lemon juice with a little soap, scrub and then buff. Much greener than chemical solutions.
- To relax. Studies have indicated that the smell of lemon promotes relaxation and a happier state of mind.
- To disinfect. I recently mentioned running a slice of lemon over a wooden cutting board will sanitize it, but you can use lemon juice to clean counters and even add it to mop water.
- To soothe a sore throat. Mixing the juice of half a roasted lemon with a teaspoon of honey is an old remedy for sore throats.
- Brightening whites. Just as bleach removed stains (sometimes) and sanitizes, so will adding a half cup of lemon juice to a normal-sized load of (white only!) laundry.
