a creative mint never fails to have such beautiful images…
I especially like this shot right now because we were seeing lemon trees everywhere in San Fran. Wouldn’t it be great to have a fruit tree in your yard? Maybe you already do…
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND!
Lemons are pretty much nature’s bleach and can be used in many areas of your home to make it clean and shiny, not to mention lemony fresh! Here are a few….
To brighten whites, you can add 1/2 cup of lemon juice to the rinse cycle. This is a safer alternative to bleach and for those of you who have a septic system, lemons are much friendlier than bleach!
- On Countertops & Cuttingboards
Dip the open side of a lemon half into some baking soda. Scrub countertops/cutting boards, then wipe with a wet sponge and dry. This is a simple homemade cleaner that is a perfect alternative to harsh chemicals!
*Warning: this mixture can sometimes cause discoloration on delicate stone or stainless steel so always do a test patch first to be safe or just avoid those surfaces all together.
Mix lemon juice and baking soda so it’s the consistency of toothpaste. Use a soft cloth to rub the mixture on the metal surface. Rinse and wipe dry. Look at that shine…
- Stuff Them in Your Garbage Disposal
To keep your garbage disposal from smelling questionable, put a quarter of a lemon down there from time to time. Right before I do this, I usually squeeze the last of the juice out and scrub the inside of the sink as well. I love this because then the sink is sparkling and the whole kitchen smells like lemon – some cleaning that can actually make you smile!
