Lemon Scrubber


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Dip a lemon half in borax and use it as a scrubber for the bathroom, kitchen counters, cupboards, and appliances -- any surface that is likely to have both alkali and acidic dirt.
To remove rust or food stains on countertops, rub a cut lemon over the spot or squeeze fresh lemon juice onto the area and let it sit for up to 30 minutes.

    I'm a fan of simple cleaning products and I don't buy chemicals unless I really have to do so. This is a great idea and I can't wait to use it.

    I was wondering if you knew of a way to get fingerprints off of stainless steel.

    Thanks for the tip! Have you tried it on soap scum? I'm trying to find something non-chemical that will help with that stuff!
