Detox 22 Lemons for cleaning, bleaching and deodorising

The young lemon tree growing in our backyard provides us with enough lemons for one year.  Whenever I walk past the tree I’m aware of the clean, sharp aroma of the leaves and the fruit.  Lemon juice is a mild acid.  It is, therefore, useful for cleaning, bleaching and deodorising.

When combined with salt, lemon juice is excellent for cleaning copper.  Dip half a lemon in salt and rub the surface vigorously.  Rinse with hot water.  Polish with a soft cloth.

To clean and deodorise your microwave oven, add the juice of one lemon to half a cup of water.  Place in the microwave and turn on a high setting for one minute.  Wipe clean.


About chemicalfreehome

My interest in chemical free living began in 1983 when I was accidentally soused in pesticide from an aircraft. I became seriously ill with life-threatening weight loss and severe pain; however, over a period of years I regained my health and gradually evolved a new lifestyle regarding the use of chemicals in our home. When I realised that other people were concerned about the effects of chemicals on health I decided to turn a negative into a positive and so wrote my best-selling book 'Chemical Free Home' published by Black Inc in Melbourne. I have been amazed by the response of all age groups, as everyone is affected by chemicals to some degree, and everyone benefits by reducing their use. In this blog I hope to suggest ways in which you too can create a healthier home environment.
