Clean greasy messes Greasy pans? Splattered stove tops? Messy counters? If your kitchen has been the victim of some sloppy sauteing, try using lemon halves before bringing out possibly toxic chemical cleaners. Sprinkle some salt (for abrasion) on a juiced lemon half and rub on the greasy areas, wipe up with a towel. (Be careful using lemon on marble counter tops, or any other surface which may be sensitive to acid).
Peel and grind equal amounts of Ginger Root and Garlic Flakes to a fine Paste using Lemon Juice instead of Water as the thinning Agent.Lemon Juice acts as a natural preservative and keeps it fresh for longer.This stays in the 'Fridge for 2-3 months---saving Time and Effort when needed in a hurry
It takes a little Time and effort but is tastier,healthier and cheaper in the long run.By doing this at Home I ensure that I get genuinely Pure and Natural Ingredients without any harmful Additives or Chemical Preservatives added as an extra appendage to them.
I like to use Torani or DaVinci Sugar Free Syrups to make flavored ice. I fill ice cube trays (half full) with the different flavored syrups. I then use the flavored ice cubes in my water. This is a nice variation from always using lemons or limes to flavor my water. 274
