Take lemon for example
This sharp citrus fruit is a kitchen staple and goes easily with any recipe.
The citric acid in lemons acts as an antibacterial, antiseptic, and a natural bleaching agent.
So how do you use lemon as a super cheap cleanser?
Method 1 – Lemon Cleaner
Juice two lemons.
Mix lemon juice with water and bring to a boil on the stove.
Once it boils, mix it with a tablespoon of regular dish soap.
Once the mixture is stirred, turn it off the heat.
Let cool before transferring to a sprayable bottle.
Spray the solution directly on dirt and grime areas, then clean with a scouring pad or towel.
Method 2 – Lemon Oven Steam
If you're battling stubborn grease, your oven will enjoy pre-cleaned oven steam to loosen grime and make it easier to cut.
Fill a glass bowl with boiling water.
Squeeze two lemons into the water.
Put the bowl in the oven.
Let the lemon steam melt grease and fat to give your oven a good start.
Method 3 - Lemon Rub
Or, if you're in a hurry, you can cut a lemon in half and rub it onto the oven glass as another way to remove dirt.
Cut three lemons in half.
Once your oven is steamed to loosen the initial stubborn stain, go in half with your lemons and rub them on the oven surface for a concentrated dose of citric acid.
This citric acid will directly break down the dirt and make the cleaning process easier.
