Six Uses For Lemons

Lemons have a use for something other that lemonade.  Here are six uses that you may not have been aware of.

  • A few drops of juice added to water will whiten boiled potatoes.
  • Add a few drops of juice to rice as it’s cooking to keep rice from sticking. Of coarse, unless you wanted sticky rice.
  • Gargling with 1/8 cup of warm water mixed with one teaspoon lemon juice will kill bacteria and sooth swollen throat tissue.
  • Have heartburn? Next time try drinking lemon water, it may help.
  • Helps sooth poison ivy rashes and keeps it from spreading by applying full strength on the affected area.
  • Apply juice to any area around your home where ants, spiders and fleas may be able to enter. These insects are highly sensitive to smell, thus keeping them away.
