When life gives you lemons... The possibilities of what you can do with them are endless. Today we're sharing a few of our fave lemony hacks to use around the house!
1. CUTTING BOARDS
Considering a cutting board is where you prep your food, you should definitely be sure to clean it in the most natural way possible! Cut a lemon in half and squeeze the juice on your board. Use the lemon to rub the juices in and let sit for 20 minutes. The acid will remove the stains from your wooden & plastic boards.
2. BRIGHTER CLOTHES
Have a tough stain & bleach isn't doing the trick? Give this lemon hack a whirl. Add your stained garment to a pot of water, add lemon slices & boil for a few minutes.
