We already know cleaning solutions are really bad, they are made with toxic chemicals that at best can trigger respiratory problems and skin irritations, at worst have even been linked to cancer. But there is an alternative, nature. Mother Nature has provided us with the tools to clean effectively and in a non- toxic way, plus it smell delicious! Lemons are great to clean with because they are naturally antibacterial and grease cutters! With one lemon I cleaned my microwave, my counters and the garbage disposal. Here is how…

How to clean your kitchen with just one lemon

Step 1. Get your materials ready

  • You will need a microwave safe plastic bowl (big enough to hold 2 cups of water)
  • One lemon
  • 2 cups of water
  • Spray bottle
  • White distilled vinegar
  • Cotton towel

Step 2. Clean the microwave

Cut your lemon in half cover it with the water and place the bowl in the microwave uncovered. Cooking time 5 minutes. But if you microwave looked like mine, like it hadn’t been cleaned since 2005…add another 5 minutes.

Remove the bowl carefully, it’s hot! Then with a cotton towel just wipe clean! For stubborn caked on mess (yeah mine was that bad) dip the towel in the water then wipe.

Step 3. Make a cleaning solution

Let the lemon water cool off a bit then add equal parts lemon water and white distilled vinegar into your spray bottle. I recommend a small bottle, because you won’t need that much solution and the lemon water can get moldy if not used within a couple days.

Mix together and knock yourself out cleaning anything, the counters, the stove…you know that grime that builds up on top of the fridge? Perfect for that!

Step 4. Clean and deodorize the garbage disposal

Send the lemons down the sink drain run your faucet just a little and turn of the garbage disposal!

It deodorizes and reduces the growth of bacteria that may be lurking there, and I assure you it’ll smell delicious!
