45 ways to use lemons

 

Most people are familiar with the traditional uses for lemons to soothe sore throats, add some citrus flavor to our foods, and also to include these lemons in teas.

However there are so many ways to use lemons that are never discussed. Not only will it save you money but it is an all natural way to freshen up things around the house and will help with a few health conditions also.

Once you read the following list, you’ll likely want to stock at least a few lemons in your kitchen 24-7.

45 Ways to Use Lemons Around The House

1. Freshen the Fridge
Remove refrigerator odors with ease. Dab lemon juice on a
cotton ball or sponge and leave it in the fridge for several
hours. Make sure to toss out any malodorous items that might
be causing the bad smell.

2. High Blood Pressure
Lemon contains potassium which controls high blood pressure
and reduces the effect of nausea and dizziness.

3. Prevent Cauliflower From Turning Brown
Cauliflower tend to turn brown with even the slightest cooking.
You can make sure the white vegetables stay white by
squeezing a teaspoon of fresh lemon juice on them before
heating.

4. Mental Health
Lemon water can also prep up your mood and relieve you from
depression and stress. Long distance walkers and world
travelers as well as explorers look upon the lemon as a
Godsend. When fatigue begins, a lemon is sucked through a
hole in the top. Quick acting medicine it is, giving almost
unbelievable refreshments.

5. Refresh Cutting Boards
No wonder your kitchen cutting board smells! After all, you
use it to chop onions, crush garlic, and prepare fish. To get rid
of the smell and help sanitize the cutting board, rub it all over
with the cut side of half a lemon or wash it in undiluted juice
straight from the bottle.

6. Respiratory Problems
Lemon water can reduce phlegm; and can also help you
breathe properly and aids a person suffering with asthma.

7. Treating Arthritis and Rheumatism
Lemon is a diuretic – assists in the production of urine which
helps you to reduce inflammation by flushing out toxins and
bacteria while also giving you relief from arthritis and
rheumatism.

8. Prevents Kidney Stones
Regular consumption of the refreshing drink — or even lemon
juice mixed with water — may increase the production of
urinary citrate, a chemical in the urine that prevents the
formation of crystals that may build up into kidney stones.

9. Keep Insects Out of the Kitchen
You don’t need insecticides or ant traps to ant-proof your
kitchen. Just give it the lemon treatment. First squirt some
lemon juice on door thresholds and windowsills. Then squeeze
lemon juice into any holes or cracks where the ants are getting
in. Finally, scatter small slices of lemon peel around the
outdoor entrance. The ants will get the message that they
aren’t welcome. Lemons are also effective against roaches and
fleas: Simply mix the juice of 4 lemons (along with the rinds)
with 1/2 gallon (2 liters) water and wash your floors with it;
then watch the fleas and roaches flee. They hate the smell.

10. Anti-Aging
Lemon water reduces the production of free radicals which are
responsible for aging skin and skin damage. Lemon water is
calorie free and an antioxidant.

11. Fruit and Vegetable Wash
You never know what kind of pesticides or dirt may be lurking
on the skin of your favorite fruits and vegetables. Slice your lemon and squeeze out one tablespoon of lemon juice into your
spray bottle. The lemon juice is a natural disinfectant and will
leave your fruits and vegetables smelling nice too.

12. Treat Infections
Lemon water can fight throat infections thanks to its
antibacterial property. If salt water does not work for you, try
lime and water for gargling.
13. Deodorize Your Garbage
If your garbage is beginning to smell yucky, here’s an easy
way to deodorize it: Save leftover lemon and orange peels and
toss them at the base under the bag. To keep it smelling fresh,
repeat once every couple of weeks.

14. Keep Guacamole Green
You’ve been making guacamole all day long for the big party,
and you don’t want it to turn brown on top before the guests
arrive. The solution: Sprinkle a liberal amount of fresh lemon
juice over it and it will stay fresh and green. The flavor of the
lemon juice is a natural complement to the avocados in the
guacamole. Make the fruit salad hours in advance too. Just
squeeze some lemon juice onto the apple slices, and they’ll stay
snowy white.

15. Purges The Blood
We consume a lot of junk food or food with a lot of
preservatives and artificial flavors. This builds up a lot of
toxins in the blood and body but daily consumption of lemon
water helps to purify the blood.

16. Make Soggy Lettuce Crisp
Don’t toss that soggy lettuce into the garbage. With the help of
a little lemon juice you can toss it in a salad instead. Add the
juice of half a lemon to a bowl of cold water. Then put the
soggy lettuce in it and refrigerate for 1 hour. Make sure to dry
the leaves completely before putting them into salads or
sandwiches.

17. Oral Health
Lemon juice also stops bleeding gums and reduces toothaches

18. Lighten Age Spots
Why buy expensive creams when you’ve got lemon juice? To
lighten liver spots or freckles, try applying lemon juice directly
to the area. Let it sit for 15 minutes and then rinse your skin
clean. It’s a safe and effective skin-lightening agent.

19. Create Blonde Highlights
For salon-worthy highlights, add 1/4 cup lemon juice to 3/4
cup water and rinse your hair with the mixture. Then, sit in
the sun until your hair dries. To maximize the effect, repeat
once daily for up to a week.

20. Make a Room Scent/Humidifier
Freshen and moisturize the air in your home on dry winter
days. Make your own room scent that also doubles as a
humidifier. If you have a wood-burning stove, place an
enameled cast-iron pot or bowl on top, fill with water, and add
lemon (and/or orange) peels, cinnamon sticks, cloves, and
apple skins. No wood-burning stove? Use your stove top instead
and just simmer the water periodically.

21. Clean and Whiten Nails
Pamper your hands without a manicurist. Add the juice of 1/2
lemon to 1 cup warm water and soak your fingertips in the
mixture for 5 minutes. After pushing back the cuticles, rub
some lemon peel back and forth against the nail.

22. Cleanse Your Face
Zap zits naturally by dabbing lemon juice on blackheads to
draw them out during the day. You can also wash your face
with lemon juice for a natural cleanse and exfoliation. Your
skin should improve after several days of treatment. Lemon
water is also a cooling agent, best way to beat the heat.

23. Freshen Your Breath
Make an impromptu mouthwash by rinsing with lemon juice
straight from the bottle. Swallow for longer-lasting fresh
breath. The citric acid in the juice alters the pH level in your
mouth, killing bacteria that causes bad breath. Rinse after a
few minutes because long-term exposure to the acid in lemons
can harm tooth enamel.

24. Treat Flaky Dandruff
If itchy, scaly dandruff has you scratching your head, relief
may be no farther away than your refrigerator. Just massage
two tablespoons lemon juice into your scalp and rinse with
water. Then stir one teaspoon lemon juice into one cup water
and rinse your hair with it. Repeat daily until your dandruff
disappears

25. Get Rid of Tough Stains on Marble
You probably think of marble as stone, but it is really petrified
calcium (also known as old seashells). That explains why it is
so porous and easily stained and damaged. Those stains can be
hard to remove. If washing won’t remove a stubborn stain, try
this: Cut a lemon in half, dip the exposed flesh into some table
salt, and rub it vigorously on the stain. But do this only as a
last resort; acid can damage marble. Rinse well.

26. Remove Berry Stains
It sure was fun to pick your own berries, but now your fingers
are stained with berry juice that won’t come off no matter how
much you scrub with soap and water. Try washing your hands
with undiluted lemon juice, then wait a few minutes and wash
with warm, soapy water. Repeat until your hands are stainfree.

27. Soften Dry, Scaly Elbows
Itchy elbows are bad enough, but they look terrible too. For
better looking (and feeling) elbows, mix baking soda and
lemon juice to make an abrasive paste, then rub it into your
elbows for a soothing, smoothing, and exfoliating treatment.
Rinse your extremities in a mixture of equal parts lemon juice
and water, then massage with olive oil and dab dry with a soft
cloth.

28. Headaches
Lemon juice with a few teaspoons of hot tea added is the
treatment of a sophisticated New York bartender, for those
who suffer with hangover headaches–and from headaches due
to many other causes. He converts his customers to this
regime, and weans them away from drug remedies completely.

29. Chills and Fevers
Chills and fevers may be due to a variety of causes; never the
less the lemon is always a helpful remedy. Spanish physicians
regard it as an infallible friend.

30. Diptheria
Skip the vaccine for this disease. Lemon Juice Treatment still
proves as one of the most powerful antiseptics and the strong
digestive qualities of the fruit are admired around the world.
With the juice every hour or two, and at the same time, 1/2 to 1
tsp. should be swallowed. This cuts loose the false membrane
in the throat and permits it to come out.

31. Vaginal Hygiene
Diluted lemon juice makes a safe and sane method of vaginal
hygiene. Though it is a powerful antiseptic it is nevertheless
free from irritating drugs in douches and suppositories.

32. Forget The Moth Balls
A charming French custom to keep closets free from moths is
to take ripe lemons and stick them with cloves all over the skin.
The heavily studded lemons slowly dry with their cloves,
leaving a marvelous odor throughout the closets and rooms.

poison ivy comes a-creeping. Just apply lemon juice directly to
the affected area to soothe itching and alleviate the rash.

36. Remove Warts
You’ve tried countless remedies to banish warts and nothing
seems to work. Next time, apply a dab of lemon juice directly to
the wart using a cotton swab. Repeat for several days until the
acids in the lemon juice dissolve the wart completely.

37. Bleach Delicate Fabrics
Avoid additional bleach stains by swapping ordinary
household chlorine bleach with lemon juice, which is milder
but no less effective. Soak your delicate in a mixture of lemon
juice and baking soda for at least half an hour before washing.

38. Clean Tarnished Brass and Polish Chrome
Say good-bye to tarnish on brass, copper, or stainless steel.
Make a paste of lemon juice and salt (or substitute baking soda
or cream of tartar for the salt) and coat the affected area. Let it
stay on for 5 minutes. Then wash in warm water, rinse, and
polish dry. Use the same mixture to clean metal kitchen sinks
too. Apply the paste, scrub gently, and rinse. Get rid of mineral
deposits and polish chrome faucets and other tarnished
chrome. Simply rub lemon rind over the chrome and watch it
shine! Rinse well and dry with a soft cloth.

39. Replace Your Dry Cleaner
Ditch the expensive dry-cleaning bills (and harsh chemicals)
with this homegrown trick. Simply scrub the stained area on
shirts and blouses with equal parts lemon juice and water.
Your “pits” will be good as new, and smell nice too.

40. Boost Laundry Detergent
For more powerful cleaning action, pour 1 cup lemon juice
into the washer during the wash cycle. The natural bleaching
action of the juice will zap stains and remove rust and mineral
discolorations from cotton T-shirts and briefs and will leave
your clothes smelling fresh. Your clothes will turn out brighter
and also come out smelling lemon-fresh.

41. Rid Clothes of Mildew
Have you ever unpacked clothes you stored all winter and
discovered some are stained with mildew? To get rid of it,
make a paste of lemon juice and salt and rub it on the affected
area, then dry the clothes in sunlight. Repeat the process until
the stain is gone.

42. Eliminate Fireplace Odor
There’s nothing cozier on a cold winter night than a warm fire
burning in the fireplace — unless the fire happens to smell
horrible. Next time you have a fire that sends a stench into the
room, try throwing a few lemon peels into the flames. Or
simply burn some lemon peels along with your firewood as a
preventive measure.

43. Neutralize Cat-Box Odor
You don’t have to use an aerosol spray to neutralize foul smelling
cat-box odors or freshen the air in your bathroom.
Just cut a couple of lemons in half. Then place them, cut side
up, in a dish in the room, and the air will soon smell lemon fresh.

44. Deodorize a Humidifier
When your humidifier starts to smell funky, deodorize it with
ease: Just pour 3 or 4 teaspoons lemon juice into the water. It
will not only remove the off odor but will replace it with a
lemon-fresh fragrance. Repeat every couple of weeks to keep
the odor from returning.

45. Reduce Asthma Symptoms
In addition to a general detoxifying diet, 2 tablespoons of
lemon juice before each meal, and before retiring can reduce
asthma symptoms.

 

* If you do consume lemon peel, stick to organic lemons to reduce your pesticide exposure.
