We all know how healthy lemons are. Besides the well-known fact that they are high in vitamin C, lemons also contain numerous other vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients.
Lemons have been used for their medicinal properties for thousands of years. They are known for their efficiency in combating viruses, germs, and bacteria, thus protecting the heart, boosting the immune system, lowering the risk of cancer and more. Lemons are also used for cosmetic purposes; the intake and external application of lemon juice will contribute to healthier and better-looking skin and hair.
However, the use of lemons does not end here. Not many of us know that lemons can fight various bacteria and germs in the kitchen, as well as bad smells.
Here is how to make your kitchen clean and fresh in no time by using lemons:
Take a lemon and cut it in four. Be careful not to separate the parts, they should hold together at the bottom. Add some salt over the lemon and leave it on the kitchen counter.
The ‘salty lemon’ will start giving out a pleasant fresh smell, neutralizing the bad odors in the kitchen.
Lemons can also be used to prepare a homemade disinfectant. This disinfectant is much safer than the store-bought ones because it is 100% natural and contains no harmful chemicals.
To prepare this homemade disinfectant, squeeze the juice out of three lemons, then mix it with some liquid soap and salt. Transfer the mixture into a bottle of water and pour over the surfaces you’d like to clean and disinfect. It will kill all the viruses, bacteria, and germs within minutes.
