When life hands you lemons …. there is an amazing list of things you can do with them. Here are 10 amazing household uses for lemon.

#1. Do-It-Yourself shoe polish:

Add a few drops of lemon juice to olive oil. Apply to shoes then buff with a clean rag for a perfect shine.

#2. Refresh cutting boards, rolling pins:

To get odors out of wooden rolling pins, bowls, or cutting boards, rub with a piece of lemon. Don’t rinse: The wood will absorb the lemon juice.

#3. Deodorize your dustbin:

If your bin is beginning to smell nasty, here’s an easy way to deodorize it: Save leftover lemon and orange peels and toss them at the base under the bag. To keep it smelling fresh, repeat once every couple of weeks.

#4.‪  Remove stains from fabric:

Dab salt and lemon juice onto the stain, leave for a while, then rinse well and wash as normal.

#5. Insects deterrent:

Squeeze lemon juice around windows and doors to keep insects out. Place some sliced lemon (or the juiced lemons) around the kitchen to keep insects away.

#6. Do-It-Yourself furniture polish:

Mix the juice from one lemon, 1 teaspoon of olive oil, and 1 teaspoon of water. Rub a thin coat of lemon mixture onto wood furniture, and then buff to shine.

#7.  Polish faucets:

Take the squeezed out lemon half (reserve the juice for cooking) and rub vigorously over the faucets. Exchange for another lemon half if you have a lot of faucets to clean.
