Lemons Anyone???

This weekend I was using quite a few lemons to cook with so I decided to look up other everyday uses for lemons and here are a few of the ideas I found at

~Cut a lemon in half and place in dishes for air fresheners.

~Clean and deodorize your microwave by placing 4 tablespoons of lemon juice in 1 cup of water. Place in microwaveable bowland boil for 5 minutes. The condensation from the boiled mixture will enable the microwave to be wiped out easily, and will deodorize the oven.

~By adding a teaspoon of lemon juice to rice while cooking you can prevent your rice from sticking.

~Lemon or orange peels tossed regularly into the garbage disposal will keep the garbage disposal smelling fresh.

~Dry and achy hands and feet can be relieved with a mixture of lemon juice and olive oil used as a massage. The skin will feel softer too.

~Remove the foul odor of fish or the stain of berries from your hands by washing them first in lemon juice and then with soap and water.
