Lemon Scrubber



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.
