Lemons are a powerful, all-natural cleaner. Here are five ways you can include lemons in your cleaning routine:

  1. All-purpose cleaning. Mix one-half cup of white vinegar, lemon juice and two cups of water. Spray and wipe clean.
  2. Copper polish. Pour salt on a lemon and scrub.
  3. Cutting board cleaning. Cut a lemon in half and rub it onto your cleaning board. Let it sit for 20 minutes. Rinse and towel dry.
  4. Microwave upkeep. Place a lemon and water in a bowl and turn on the microwave. Remove the bowl and wipe away the water.
  5. Pest control. Mix four lemons and two liters of water to create a natural pesticide. Spray the mixture near pest hot spots. Limes and grapefruits work as well if you don’t have lemons.
