When life gives you lemons...

… make lemonade - and maybe attack some cleaning projects whist you are at it. The acidity of lemons is perfect for removing dirt and rust stains; particularly when mixed with other compounds such as salt or cream of tartar. Get green, and get clean! Here are some ideas:

Countertops: dip the cut side of a lemon partially in baking soda to tackle (non-delicate) table surfaces. Wipe with a wet sponge and dry.

Dishes: boost the grease cutting power of your detergent with a teaspoon of lemon juice.

Faucets: combat lime scale by rubbing lemon juice on taps and let it sit overnight, then wipe with a damp cloth.

Garbage disposal: cut lemon in half and run both pieces - including, and especially the rind - through the disposal. It cleans and freshens at the same time.

Grout: add lemon juice to 1 or 2 teaspoons of cream of tartar to make a paste. Apply with a toothbrush, then rinse.

Odours: neutralize odors of garlic and fish on your hands by rubbing your hands in lemon juice.

Laundry: to brighten whites add ½ cup of lemon juice to a normal sized load during the rinse cycle.

Plastic food storage containers: to get stains out of a plastic container, rub them with lemon, dry in the sun and rinse as usual.
