Uses for lemons 005: Ant Patrol

I bake a lot and I make lots of sweets and chocolate. I also live in an old house, on a sand dune, where ants like to feel at home.  So after any sugar-laden cooking session I need to clean up very well and I used to spend ages trying to get every last sugary morsel off the bench. I have since found an easier way.

Chop a lemon in half and wipe down the bench with it. The lemon juice interrupts those devilish ant sensors and they just don’t come a’callin.

Uses for lemons 004: Deodorant

Nasty things are reported to be found lurking in deodorant bottles-parabens, PEGs, hormone-disrupting fragrances and antibacterials, petrochemicals, aluminum compounds. So throw it out and use your lemons! Just slice one in half and rub it under those armpits. The antibacterial properties will keep you feeling lemony fresh.

Uses for lemons 003: Cleaning raw eggs

Does your favourite salad dressing call for raw egg but you’re a bit angsty because of the salmonella risk? Lemon power will save the day. Add 20ml of lemon juice per egg, stir gently and refrigerate the mix for 48 hours. You can store this mix in the freezer for up to 3 months. When you are ready to use, thaw the eggs in the fridge overnight.
