National Lemon Juice Day is August 29. Here are natural ways to use this citrus fruit to freshen, clean and more.
Deodorize the Drain
Run a few lemon rinds (or used lemons) through the garbage disposal to reduce sink stink and keep it clean.
Instead of using bowls, serve shells. Hollow out lemons and scoop store-bought sorbet into the homemade shell cups for a refreshing twist. To create, cut a sliver off one end of the lemon that will serve as the bottom to help make it sit flat. Next, cut a larger slice from the other end to create the top of your cup. Using a serrated knife, slice around the inside of the pith. With a spoon or melon baller, scoop out the inside of the lemon. You can reserve and use the insides for something else, like lemonade. Cover and freeze the shell cups until ready to use.
Make a Natural Air Freshener
Fill a pot with water and sliced lemons to add a refreshing aroma or neutralize cooking smells. Let it simmer on the stove for about 30 minutes.
