Eco Friendly Uses for Lemons

I’ve come to realize that there are several Eco friendly uses for lemons. Did you know that you can make a paste of Lemon and Salt to remove a yellow stain on your clothes? I got that tip from a blogging friend the other day.

Eco-Friendly Uses for Lemons

Here are 4 more Eco Friendly uses for Lemons

#1:Lemon Ice Cubes
My sister told me she squeezes the juice from a lemon into an ice tray and when she wants flavored water, she just gets a glass of water and adds a lemon cube to it! This should be good during the summer! Add a little sugar to it after the cube starts to melt and you have homemade lemonade!

#2: Prevent Avocado from turning brown
Cut the Avocado and squeeze lemon juice over the avocado to prevent it from turning brown.

#3: Treat Canker Sores:
Mix the juice of a freshly squeezed lemon into a glass of lukewarm water and rinse your mouth with this solution; do this three times a day.

#4: Clean your Microwave with a lemon:
All you do is take a lemon and cut some wedges out of it. Then place the lemon wedges in a microwave safe bowl or container, along with 2 to 3 cups of water. (If you don’t have a fresh lemon you can use 2 to 3 tbs. of lemon juice as a substitute.)

Cook bowl with lemons in it, in microwave for about 2 to 3 minutes. This creates a lemon soaked steam that will remove grease from your microwave. Let bowl stand inside the microwave for about 10 minutes, allowing the steam to build up inside the microwave.

Remove bowl from microwave. Then wipe inside of microwave with a warm damp cloth or rag. The grease should come off with ease. Repeat the steps again for any remaining dirt or grease. Thanks to Stay At Home Mom Sue!

I tried this and it really worked! The grease and dirt were a lot easier to come off doing this. And it is a lot greener alternative for cleaning then chemical sprays. And cheaper too. Give it a try!
