HI!! Lynn/Heloise is back with some Household cleaning tips…some of these hints you may already know, some may be new to others….
“2 hints per day to make your cleaning woes go away!!!”…..lol šŸ™‚ heh heh heh

FIRST… we have LEMONS!!
**THE NITTY-GRITTY: The acid in lemon juice removes dirt and rust stains. It is especially effective when mixed with salt, which makes “an excellent scouring paste”.
1>*COUNTERTOPS*: Dip the cut side of a lemon-half in baking soda to clean countertops; follow with a wet sponge (to remove any remaining juice and baking soda) and dry with a soft dry. The exact number of whole Lemons used will depend on how large of a countertop you are cleaning.
!!!! DO NOT USE on delicate stone, like marble or stainless steel (it may discolor).!!!

2>**PLASTIC FOOD-STORAGE CONTAINERS**: To bleach food stains from tomato soup, spaghetti sauce and other acidic foods on dishwasher-safe items; rub lemon juice on the spots, let dry in a sunny place and then wash as usual. Some spots may require more than one application of lemon juice & sun to completely remove.

That’s all for today folks….

Stay tuned for a host of other inexpensive everyday items (lemons, salt, vegetable oil, toothpaste, baking soda, essential oils, catsup, bread, etc, etc, etc.) for some “all-natural” cleaning solutions.
