Introduction: 10 Unique Uses for LEMONS!

Believe it or not ,there is a lot more to do with a lemon than just lemonade .stuff you never thought of ~ 


P.s: i am new here so any comments/feed backs are much appreciated :)

Step 1: Create Natural Blond Highlights

Shampoo hair and rinse with a mixture of 1/4 cup lemon juice and 3/4 cup water. Bask in the sun until your hair dries. Repeat daily for one week to maximize the effect.

P.S:this isn't me in the photo. :D

Step 2: Add Some Lemon to Your Beverage!

From soda to iced tea, a few slices of lemon can enhance any cold drink.

Step 3: For Beautiful Nails

Nails can become yellow with age or over polishing. Add the juice of 1/2 lemon to 1 cup warm water and soak your fingertips for 5 minutes.i sometimes add olive oil too,and usually do this once a week.

Step 4: For the Cat Box "odor"

And here is one for cat owners like my own  :
Cut a couple of lemons in half, place them with the cut side up in a dish in the same room as the cat box and the citrus will help cut the *other* acidic odor.

Step 5: Hand Sanitize

Lemon disinfects germy hands.so you may want to skip the hand sanitizer .
P.s: wash hands afterwords they will feel some "sticky".

Step 6: Removing Ink Spots From Your Shirt

Lemon juice can be used for removing ink spots from clothes. Immediately apply lemon juice on the affected area, while the ink is still wet. Wash the garment as usual and line dry.

Step 7: Keep Rice From Sticking

While the water is boiling, add a teaspoon of lemon juice to keep your rice from turning into a gloppy mass. Let it cool for a few minutes and fluff with a fork before serving.

Step 8: Whiten Tennis Shoes

Now that one is really cool:
Spray tennis shoes with lemon juice and place them in the sun to dry.i put it on that white part in front , :)

Step 9: Desserts

There are so many luscious desserts that use lemon from meringues to pies; lemon is a classic dessert flavor.some of my favourite lemon desserts are:Lemon coconut bars and Lemon cheese pie.

Step 10: Stainless Steel

You don't have to buy an expensive stainless steel cleaner anymore ,instead you could just use a little salt and lemon juice. Make sure you wipe the steel down with a clean cloth afterwards.
P.s: not recommended for gold and silver.

Also, I have an uncle with high blood pressure, so he can't eat any salt. Because of that my aunt seasons rice with just lemon, she said no one notices there's no salt in it!

I think that when doing the first one you should be really careful to not get the juice on your skin cause you can get really bad sunburns on skin that's been in contact with lemon juice.
