Lemons are known for their tangy taste and they can easily bring twists to your daily meals. Whether it is just a simple lemonade or grilled fish or chicken, lemons can do wonders. You all know it, right? But do you know that lemon is an amazing house cleaning equipment? Lemons can act as an eco-friendly cleaner for your kitchen.
Kitchen is one of the most contaminated places in the entire house. Don’t bother about the pungent smells from your kitchen and make your kitchen grime-free with the help of lemons. Sounds impossible? Well, check out all the lemon hacks for cleaning the food factory of your house.
Cooking starts from chopping or cutting boards. It is merely impossible that you don’t have to chop anything before you start cooking. After that, you wash the cutting board with water and detergent.
But, the water and detergent can’t clean the cutting board. Keep the cutting boards maintained with proper cleaning and sanitation. Especially when you are using wooden ones. Because wood keeps absorbing almost everything whenever you chop something on it. If the juice stays inside then it would indulge in a hotbed for germs.
Are you thinking about how to sanitise wooden chopping boards? We have a better idea rather than applying chemicals. Grab a lemon and a pinch of salt to sanitise the chopping board. Cut the lemon into a half. Sprinkle the salt and rub the lemon over the chopping board for a couple of minutes. The lemon would absorb the bad odour from the chopping board as well as disinfecting that. Use the same hack for disinfecting wooden spoons and spatulas.
The microwave oven looks weird from outside after couples of usage. There are several instructions over deep cleaning the microwave oven and you can’t use any cleaner to refresh the oven. Well, you can find commercial cleaners for cleaning the microwave but it is better to stay indoors due to COVID-19.
Now, what to do with the messy microwave? We have got a better plan for you. Cut a lemon into slices and pour water in a microwave-safe bowl. Put the slices in the water-filled bowl. Position the bowl inside the microwave and turn it on for a few minutes. When it cools down, you can wipe off the loose dirt and grease with a cloth easily.
Graters are convenient to slice vegetables, cheese, etc for continental or other beverage preparations. But, cheese can stick inside the tiny holes of graters and are tough to remove. Try this insane hack for maintaining your grater’s health.
Get a lemon and begin grating the peel of the lemon. Dry cheese doesn’t have a chance to withstand the acidic power of lemon. The pieces of cheese would start falling. Congratulations! Your grater is free from cheese traces.
Dishwasher keeps your utensils clean and you have to clean the dishwasher after every use. Get rid of the dirt and bad odour from your dishwasher just by placing a half lemon in an empty bowl in the dishwasher. Make sure that the bowl is dishwasher safe. Run the dishwasher and eliminate the obnoxious odour from your dishwasher and make it refreshing with the lime power.
You need to prevent the grease from sticking in the grills to keep it well clean. Get rid of that fishy, burnt grill with a lemon. Place some slices of lemon on the side you are cooking on the grill. This would make your fish extra delicious and on the other hand, you can easily clean the grill. If you are handling fish for a long time then rub lemon on your hands. The fishy smell would vanish due to the lime flavour.
Greasy, burnt frying pans are the most difficult things to wash off. Don’t worry as long as you have a lemon and some baking soda. Baking soda works miracles when you have to clean something greasy. Sprinkle baking soda over your burnt frying pan. Cut a lemon into half. Rub that half lemon on the pan for a few minutes and keep the pan aside. Then, wash it as you regularly do. The grease, dirt, and moreover the smell has gone.
Are you fond of lemons? If you use lemon in your food then don’t throw the peels off. Keep the peels of the lemons inside a mason jar. When the jar gets half-filled, pour white vinegar into it. Let the jar seat for at least two weeks. It will turn into an all-purpose cleaner once the vinegar absorbs all the lemon peels. Spray this cleaner and make every corner of your home sparkling.
As you can see nothing can be thrown away when it comes to the lemon. From its peel to its juice, everything is essential for cooking, cleaning, and fragrancing.
