With spring cleaning chores just around the corner, don't forget the power of lemons. When a cut lemon is dipped in salt it, becomes a natural "scrubber," removing tarnish from copper and brass.
Environmentalists and others deeply concerned with the future of our planet continue to urge folks to "think green" by choosing eco-friendly products that will make our world a safer place to live.
One way we can do this is by choosing natural cleaning products, like vinegar, baking soda and lemons over those that contain harmful chemicals.
In some instances, the natural alternatives may even be more effective. Here are just a few practical uses for lemons:
* Removes tarnish from copper and brass with a piece of cut lemon that has been dipped in coarse salt.
* Deodorizes garbage disposals when lemon slices are ground with warm water while the disposal is running.
* Acts as a stain remover and sanitizer.
* Helps to take the sting out of insect bites.
* And much, much more.
