Top 25 Unbelievable Uses for Lemon Juice
11. Clean Your Microwave
Due to spatters, these can get disgustingly dirty, but there is an easy way to clean them quickly. Add 3 tablespoons of lemon juice to 1.5 cups of water in a glass container. Allow to boil in your microwave. Depending on your power of your microwave, this should take about 5 minutes. You want the steam to really condense on the top and side walls of the oven. Carefully remove the hot water, then simply wipe away with mess with a wet sponge or some paper towels.
12. Clean Coffee Pots or Tea Kettles
You can remove those ugly mineral deposits from your coffee pot or tea kettle by filling it with water, then adding a handful of thinly sliced lemons, including the peels. Turn on the heat and allow to boil. Turn off the heat and allow to sit for one full hour. Drain and wash.
If you have a coffeemaker, you can clean the glass pot by adding ice, salt, and lemon slices as mentioned above. Stir for a couple minutes, then empty and rinse the pot well. Read more about natural cleaners.
13. Deodorize Your Disposal
Chop up some pieces of lemon, including the peel, and toss them into your garbage disposal.
14. Soften and Whiten Elbows

15. Crisp Lettuce
Don’t throw out lettuce that has gotten a bit limp and soggy. With a little help from lemon juice, you will be able to use it in a salad instead! Add the juice of half a lemon to a bowl of very cold water. Put the lettuce in the water and refrigerate for one hour. Dry the lettuce a bit with a paper towel and you are good to go!
