Sore throats can be really aggravating, not to mention a nightmare to get rid of. Taking too many antibiotics can start harming your body after a while, so you might want to resort to home remedies before you contact the nearest pharmacy.
To help ease the pain and irritation of a sore throat, try gargling a mix of warm water and sea salt. For an extra kick, add some lemon juice into the mix. And, of course, making a nice cup of green tea with a splash of lemon and some ginger can also work wonders for a sore throat.
Protecting Vinyl Surfaces
If you don’t take good care of your vinyl upholstery and hard surfaces in your vehicle, they can be easily open to cracking. And that's just going to cost you an arm and a leg if you take it to a garage to get fixed. Why not find an easy hack to do it for absolutely nothing? And amazingly, lemons will get you over the line here.
In order to avoid this problem and keep the vinyl shiny and safe, just use a mix in a solution of olive oil and lemon juice. Afterward, you can gently massage the surface with a dampened cloth.
Scented All-Purpose Cleaner
Common household ingredients for cooking like vinegar and salt can clean your house even better than store-bought cleaners. Before you start, here's an important tip: do not combine chlorine-containing products with ammonia-based cleaners because it will cause a chemical reaction that will create hazardous fumes.
All you need for this cleaner is some lemon rind, rosemary sprigs, one part white vinegar, one part water, and a tablespoon of salt. This solution can remove water strains, wall smudges, clean trash cans, and the list goes on. The lemon's acidity will add extra cleaning strength that can remove even the most stubborn stains.
Cleaning brass doesn't have to be the chore you think it is. Sure, even the word brass sounds like the kind of material you'd only need to take care of during the time of the Great Depression. But hey, there's still lots of typical household items made from it. With some table salt and lemon juice, you're already halfway there! Now all you need is a tenacious will to clean and you're ready to get started.
Dampen a sponge using lemon juice or white vinegar with some salt sprinkled on top as you lightly rub the surface of non-lacquered cabinet pulls. Thoroughly rinse with water and dry with a clean, soft cloth immediately.
You would think that using fruit to clean the house with would just make things messier. But on the contrary, lemons can actually be a vital component in a sensible spring clean. You just need to know how to use it. For this heavy-duty scrub, all the ingredients you'll need are 1/2 cup sea salt and 1/2 lemon. It's that simple!
Dip the sliced lemon into the sea salt mix and scrub the surface to remove rust stains on the enamel or porcelain sinks and tubs. But beware, do not use this for granite or marble, as it will damage your pretty surfaces and leave you questioning everything you've ever known.
