1. Use Lemons To Whiten Clothes
We all know that white clothes are always the hardest to keep looking bright and new. It’s frustrating, I know! Of course, many laundry products can be used to restore yellowed fabrics to their former color. But, how about something natural, safe, and effective? You got it! Lemons can do the trick without breaking your bank or even causing you any allergies. Yes, you’ve read it right! You don’t need to reach for the bleach. Instead, you can throw your whitish socks or any other piece of clothes you want to whiten into a pot of boiling water with two lemon halves. Leave for two hours and then machine-wash them.
2. Use Lemons To Remove Water Stains
If you have a water enclosure or shower screen, then you know well the struggle of removing water stains from these surfaces and how quickly they return if not cleaned properly! Solution? Easy breezy…all you need is lemon and baking soda. Dip the cut side of a lemon half in baking soda and then start rubbing the lemon on the affected surface. Once the stains disappear, you should rinse and then dry the surface with a soft cloth. And Voilà, you will have more time to binge-watch your Netflix series!
