Check out These 7 Surprising Uses For Lemon
1. Keep your fridge freshFind your fridge a bit whiffy? Lemon will take care of that. Just soak a few slices in the fridge and it’ll absorb all those suss smells.
2. Natural room freshenerIf you’d like to avoid a chemical concoction to deoderise your home, use lemons instead. All you need to do is simmer lemons with water in a pan – and even add some cinnamon or cloves for a distinct fragrance that’s wonderfully natural.
3 Clean out your binThere’s nothing quite as awful as a stinky bin. But it’s easy to fix with lemon: just pop a few slices in the bottom of the bin and it’ll take care of the rest.
4 Good for your healthWhile there’s little scientific evidence on the health benefits of lemon water (and some say the acid can erode teeth), many rave about its ‘detoxifying’ properties.
One thing we do know is it improves hydration (since some people can’t stand plain water), is loaded with vitamin C – which keeps your heart healthy and protects cells from damaging free radicals. Lemons may also help reduce wrinkles and support clear skin, help maintain a healthy weight, and keep your breath fresh.
