Lemons What do to remove stains in clothes

Chlorine bleach is tough on your clothes, the environment and your wallet, so replace that bulky jug with something better: a lemon. The only thing it's tough on is dirt.

○  To Whiten Clothes

Add a cup of lemon juice to the wash cycle to boost the whitening action of your laundry detergent.

○  To Remove Stains from Clothing

Pour lemon juice over the stain. Then, rub the area with salt; and place the garment out in the sun for several hours.

○  To Remove Stains from Countertops and Other Hard Surfaces

Create a paste of lemon juice and baking soda. Then, apply the mixture to the stain, and allow it to sit for several hours.

○  To Sanitize

Rub half of a lemon over the surface that needs to be sanitized, or apply lemon juice straight from the bottle. 

○  Why This Works

The citric acid in lemons acts as a natural stain remover, bleach and sanitizer.

○  Benefits of Using Lemon as a Bleach:

•  chlorine-free
•  gentle on clothes and (most) surfaces
•  natural sanitizer
•  effective whitener/stain remover
•  fume-free
•  kid and pet-safe
•  inexpensive

○  Warnings:

1) Do not clean marble  with lemon. This can lead to etching.

2) Use a paste of lemon juice and baking soda to remove stains from plastic storage containers.
