And I’ll Bet The Sweeps On That!

I love lemons because they have so many uses beyond that of a squeeze in your sparkling water. Both the lemon juice and rind are versatile. Here are 4 great ways to use lemons around the house.

1. Combine ¼ cup sugar and 1 Tbsp olive oil &1 Tbsp lemon juice – use as a body scrub, especially in extra dry areas like elbows and feet.

2. Disinfect cutting boards – Use ½ lemon to rub 1 Tbsp baking soda into cutting board, rinse and voila!

3. Add the zest of lemons to any recipe that calls for lemon juice – this will give you amazing lemon flavor!

4. Use a Vegetable Peeler to cut wide pieces of zest. Tuck the zest into 2 cups of sugar and cover for 1 week. Lemon flavored sugar, perfect for tea or lemonade!
