Easy ways to use lemons around your house

Did you know lemons are good for more than tea and lemon aid?

They Cut Grease – Because they contain citric acid, lemons cut through grease with ease. Add a few drops of lemon juice to your dish soap to increase its grease-fighting power, or mix ½ cup vinegar with the juice of two lemons in a spray bottle for an easy grease-fighting solution. For grease stains on clothing, rub lemon juice into the stain and let sit overnight before washing as normal.

Use them to clean copper – rub your copper with half a lemon. Another method: Mix ¼ cup salt with the juice of a lemon, rub over surface, then let sit for five to 10
minutes before buffing with a clean cloth.

Cutting Board Freshener: Disinfect and deodorize cutting boards by rubbing a cut lemon over the surface. Let the juice dry, then wipe clean with water.

Hard Water Stain Remover:
Rub half a cut lemon over hard water stains and soap buildup in the sink or tub. Dip the lemon in coarse salt beforehand to give it extra scrubbing power. Lemons are also helpful at descaling teapots and removing hard water stains from other appliances that hold water, such as coffeepots. To descale a teapot, boil lemon wedges inside the pot, then let the water sit for a few hours before rinsing out. You can also fill the teapot with diluted lemon juice and let sit for a few hours.

Simple, Cheap and safe! Do you have any tips?

Buzzworthy Baby Giveaway Ends 7/26

Welcome to the Buzzworthy Baby Giveaway! 
Hosted By: Mami’s 3 Little Monkeys
Co-Hosted By:  Luker Family Tales 
 Buzzworthy Baby formerly known as Baby Art was started by Kris O’Neill in 1986, in a tiny back room of her home in Cadillac, MI. She loved the idea of a fun, colorful and personalized baby gift that people could hang in their baby’s nursery. She had the unique idea to integrate information about every newborn into a colorful and versatile collage. She started out by giving the prints away as gifts to friends and family member with new babies. The word of her colorful and intricate designs quickly spread and she started to sell them to the families in her area and even those further away. In 1994, she was faced with a tough decision, to continue to run a business or be more involved as a mother to her two sons, Kyle and Devin. She of course closed up her shop until the day the company could be reawakened, 18 years later when one of Kris’s sons decided to rock the cradle. Devin was intrigued by how many people had cherished his mother’s artwork so he rechristened the business side of what he began to call “Buzzworth Baby“.
Buzzworthy Baby offers beautiful framed ($189ARV) and canvas wall art ($129ARV) for every baby’s nursery or even for children’s rooms. These prints come full of color, adorable images and personalized with all of the important details such as: baby’s name, birth weight, birth time and date, siblings, parents and other personal information that should and can be preserved forever in a pictorial homage of the family’s special day!
