The following are two simple ways to clean with lemon that are easy and effective.
- Cleaning the cutting board.
If you think the nasty red stains on a cutting board are permanent, you are wrong. First sprinkle board with kosher salt or baking soda. Let that sit for 5 minutes. Then with a halved lemon, firmly run the lemon across the whole board. Rinse with warm water.
- Cleaning your microwave of splattered food.
Those same tomatoes that stain the cutting board can splatter in the micorwave. Along with any other liquid or food. Take a large microwave safe bowl that can hold 3-4 cups of water. But you only need 1-2 cups of water. Cut up 1 – 2 lemons into quarter pieces and place in the bowl. Add 2-3 tablespoons of distilled vinegar. Then microwave on High for several minutes, until you see water boiling and/or steam on the microwave door. Take a damp sponge and wipe the microwave walls.
