A simple lemon can be of great use around the house!

1. Cleaning the microwave

Use a lemon to clean your dirty and greasy microwave. Fill a bowl with water and add the juice and zest of one lemon. Heat this up for four minutes and then use the warm lemon water to clean the microwave on the inside.

2. Nail whitening

It’s a common problem for women: nails changing colour due to too much nail polish. It doesn’t look very pretty! Luckily, there’s a simple trick to get your nails back to their normal colour (after taking the nail polish off, of course). Slice a lemon in two and use this to rub your nails. Your nails will look like themselves again afterwards!

3. Repelling insects

A lot of insects, like mosquitos and ants, really don’t like lemons. Mix together the juice of a lemon with some water, pour this into a spray bottle and spray the mixture in several spots around your home. Goodbye, insects!

4. Lemon detox

A lot has been written about the health benefits of drinking a glass of warm water with lemon every morning. It’s said to help against constipation, prevent halitosis, detox your liver and make your skin glow. That definitely sounds like it’s worth a try! Plus, it’s tasty, too!
