    You can also use lemon juice and salt as a rust remover. Just sprinkle some salt on the rusty spot and put some of the juice right on top of the salt…but not so much that the salt floats away. You want the mixture to sit right on the rust. Leave it to sit for a few hours and come back with a scrubber and go to work. It won’t take much effort to remove the rust, I promise

    I’ve often heard (probably on Martha Stewart) that you can sprinkle salt on the cut side of 1/2 a lemon and use it to clean your copper. It works better than any toxic cleaner would.

    I surely appreciated all of your information. I wish to give thanks to you for using the time to write this blog. But I just have one question; do you have an RSS Feed I can subscribe to? If possible let me know. Thanks a lot.

    Do you have to neutralise the lemon juice with bicarb or do you just leave it there? Have you come across anything that you can’t clean with lemon juice? I just don’t want to ruin anything.

      Good question! I you’re uncertain, I’d test it out on a small area to see how it goes.

    Lemon works very well… if you have grease or rust on your clothes just put a little bit of laundry soap, rub a little lemon on it then let it sit under the sun for about ten minutes… that would do the job.

    Lemon juice is not a degreaser. It’s an acid. You need a high pH to cut grease. You also missed the main point of acid cleaners: soap scum. Clearly you have no idea what you’re talking about.

    Clean your microwave and remove odors. Place a cup 3/4 full of water with
    a couple tablespoons of lemon juice in the microwave. Heat to boiling.
    Don’t open the door for another 10 minutes. Then just wipe away food
    particles with a clean cloth and dry.
    Best regards!

    I tried the lemon juice and salt on my rusted stove drip pan and it worked at first. But then the rust reappeared. So am I gonna have to clean it every time the rust stains appear? Thanx for your response.
