Lemons. I love them. Whether you're using them for a sweet dessert, a savoury dish or just enjoying a hot water with a slice of lemon, they are wonderful. I knew people used them for cleaning as well as eating, but had never tried them out their cleaning power until the other day.
I was flicking through my copy of 'Domestic Bliss' by Molly Dye, looking for a trick to clean my kettle. I use the kettle all the time, and while I knew it was clean, the inside had become discoloured and it was really annoying me. I didn't want to use any harsh chemicals so turned to Molly for a natural solution. She had one – Lemons. So, I cut two lemons into quarters, put them into a kettle full of water and brought it to the boil. I let it sit for an hour and then returned to see the result. It was amazing! The discoloured kettle was no more. It was bright white again, just like new. Now I'm off to see what else I can use the awesome lemon for!
