Despite the wide and wonderful array of cleaning products out there at the moment, there are always one or two stains or cleaning challenges that prove too stubborn for even the most advanced of modern chemicals.
But the real solution to a lot of the most common cleaning issues might come from an unlikely source – the humble Lemon.
Packed with citric acid and capable of a mild, completely organic cleaning agent, a little lemon juice can go a long way to tackling a cleaning problem.
For example, every budget or diet conscious office worker knows that Tupperware is indispensable. However, a particularly rich bolognese sauce or chilli con carne can leave your container looking a little less than appetising.
Cut a slice off a lemon and rub the inside of your container and you’ll watch that unwanted staining disappear – though for containers that have been through the microwave one too many times, leaving the lemon juice to work overnight might be required.
Speaking of the microwave, we all know how bad some office microwaves can get – an endless barrage of soups, leftovers and other snacks is enough to get anyone a little grubby.
Squeeze a lemon into a microwaveable bowl half-full of water and leave in the microwave for a couple of minutes at full power.
After that, any dirt or stains will have loosened right up, meaning it’s just a case of wiping clean with some kitchen roll from there.
