Is there anything so fragrant, so fresh and so zesty as a freshly cut lemon? I adore that smell! If you are a big citrus fan too - which can include of course lemons, limes, or even oranges or grapefruits - then use these simple and frugal tips to use lemons or other citrus fruits to keep your home clean.

  1. Lemon and Baking Soda Home Freshening Spray is a simple and fragrant way to use two super frugal ingredients from your pantry and fridge and make a home fragrance spray. Love it!
  2. Use a cut lemon dipped into salt to scrub and clean your countertops or even chopping or cutting boards. Lemon is a natural disinfectant, and of course it also adds a delicious fragrance to any surface.
  3. If you love lemons, it makes sense to buy a bottle of natural essential oil - all of the goodness of lemons condensed down into a rich and fragrant essential oil. There are literally countless ways to use lemon oil, but here are five wonderful ways to get you started .
  4. You can also try this handy trick from Georgie in your garburetor. What won't a lemon freshen up? :)
  5. Okay, and a final tip is to pop a used up (squeezed and zested) lemon half into your dishwasher during a cycle! Apparently that citric acid does just the trick to get your dishes cleaner and more sparkly. Huh!
