|Lemons that have lost their lustre|
2. Cleaning and deodorising chopping boards. Rinse your already washed chopping board with warm, running water and then rub thoroughly with half a lemon, squeezing as you go so the juice gets all on the board. Leave it for a 15-20 minutes and then rinse again with more warm, running water.
3. Scrubbing the bath. Take half a lemon and pour a generous amount of salt on it. Use it to scrub the inside of the bathtub to remove soap scum or 'rings' from the surface. The salt helps as a gentle abrasive to help you lift the dirt. Wipe over with a warm, damp cloth.
4. Whiten your fingernails. Rub the surface of the nail with a wedge of lemon, allow the juice to remain on the nail for a few minute, rinse off. This even works on nails that have gone yellow under nail polish.
5. Remove the evidence that you've stolen mulberries from your neighbour's tree. Mulberries (and other berries) can stain your fingers terribly and it is often difficult to remove this tell-tale evidence. Just thoroughly rub the stain with a lemon wedge, let it sit on there for a few minutes and then rinse off.
