More than Marinade: 15 Uses for Lemon Juice in the Home Kitchen

Lemon juice comes in handy beyond adding a citrus flair to what you’re cooking. We’ve compiled some of our favorite extra-curricular uses for Cervasi lemon juice that help around the kitchen and home.

  1. Clean Fruits and Vegetables: Lemon juice is a natural disinfectant that eliminates pesticides and dirt that lurks on the skin. Spray or wipe down your produce with lemon juice.
  2.  Save Soggy Lettuce: Left the lettuce alone too long? Save soggy lettuce by soaking the lettuce in a bowl of cold water and one tablespoon of lemon juice in the refrigerator for one hour.
  3.  No More Brown Guacamole: Keep your guacamole fresh by sprinkling a healthy amount of lemon juice on top. You’ll find the citrus will complement the avocado rather nicely.
  4.  Clean Up Tough Grease: Combine tap water and lemon juice for a vigorous cleaner that powers through tough grease on appliances and countertops.
  5.  Sparkling Cutting Boards: Stained or smelly cutting board? Use quarter-cup lemon juice on the board, scrub, and let it soak in the juice for half an hour. Then rinse and repeat if necessary.
  6.  Scrub the Microwave: Say, “No!” to scrubbing that nasty microwave again. Boil four tablespoons of lemon juice and one cup of water in the microwave for five minutes. Then, wipe off the grime with ease.
  7.  Get More out of Dish Soap: Add a few drops of lemon juice to your dish soap for extra degreasing power. If you’re allergic to (or don’t care for) commercial dish soap, mix water and lemon juice together for a gentle dish washing alternative.
