When life gives you lemons, clean your microwave! Lemons are a versatile fruit as there are dozens, yes dozens, of uses for them. Food residue inside of your microwave is no match for lemon juice and water. Simply mix 3 tablespoons of lemon juice with a 1 cup of water and heat the mixture, uncovered, in the microwave for 5-10 minutes. The steam emitted will loosen the unwanted debris, making it easy to wipe away the food splatters. Lemons can also be used to polish chrome, clean tarnished brass or deodorize a humidifier. As the summer wears on, be sure to grab a few extra lemons for around the house. Lemons are a safe option for a variety of cleaning and general household jobs.
