When life hands you lemons, take a bath

Since I moved out of my parent’s house a few years ago, I have been renting apartments, and have moved pretty frequently. All of my apartments have had a shower/tub, which I’ve typically just used as the shower.

I miss baths. Occasionally, I do want to take a bath but have found myself avoiding these bathtubs that don’t feel like they’re mine. I know you’re probably thinking, just clean the tub? And yes, of course I do. But — I also don’t like the idea of bathing with bleach. I was looking to find a natural way to clean my tub, without then bathing with such a harsh chemical. I stumbled upon these instructions, which only call for two items: a lemon, and salt.

Cut the lemon in half.  Dip the open half of the lemon in salt. Rub the lemon on the bathtub, squeezing the lemon as you scrub to make sure you get the lemon juice out there. After you scrub the tub, let it sit for about 5 minutes and then rinse it out with water!


I also started cleaning our kitchen sink this way, and love that it smells like lemon afterwards!

  1. WOW. Doing this today. And, I used to love how fresh my kitchen sink smelled after grinding a lemon in the disposal. I don’t have one here in Dux, but will treat my sink to this from now on. Thanks!
