Creative ways to clean using lemons...

In these days of allergies, we are all made aware of the potential link between severe allergies and skin conditions when using harsh chemicals. How wonderful then that we have good old reliable lemon to help us with so many cleaning tasks:

2. Mix lemon juice with water and gently dab to remove ballpoint pen, berry and rust as well as stubborn marks on marble.

3. Crushed eggshell and lemon juice mixed together will leave glass sparkling clean.

4. Clean and deodorise your kitchen bin using 1 teaspoon of lemon juice to 1 litre of water. Mix together and rinse around thoroughly.

5. Use a solution of lemon juice and water to get rid of lingering smells from plastic ups, chopping boards, etc. and to polish all kinds of surfaces. Great for cleaning your microwave and freshening your fridge, too
