Lemon juice is another natural substance that can be used for cleaning around your home.

  • It can be used to dissolve soap scum and hard water deposits. 
  • It can be mixed with vinegar and/or baking soda to make cleaning pastes. 
  • Cut a lemon in half and sprinkle baking soda on the cut section. Use the lemon to scrub dishes, surfaces and stains. 
  • Mix 1 cup of olive oil with a 1/2 cup of lemon juice and you have furniture polish for your hardwood furniture.


For removing rust stains from fabric, dab a paste of lemon juice and salt on the stain and leave for an hour. Rinse and repeat if necessary.
