7 Ways to Freshen Up Your Home With Lemons

In addition to making lemonade and cooking, Lemons can also be used around the house to help eliminate odors.  Here are a few ideas you can try:

  • Freshen up a room by cutting lemons in half and placing them in a bowl, with the cut side up.
  • Throw some lemon peels into your fire place while it is lit to keep the fire odor under control
  • Put some lemon juice on a sponge and place it inside your refrigerator for several hours to remove odors.
  • Throw used lemon peels into the garbage disposal monthly to prevent odors.
  • Remove odors and sanitize your cutting board by rubbing it with the cut side of half a lemon or wash it in undiluted lemon juice.  Don’t rinse, it will absorb it.
  • Place a few slices of cut lemon near a litter box to neutralize those odors.
  • Create your own air freshener by slicing some lemons and boiling them simmer in a pot of water for about an hour.
