Lemon DIY Dishwashing Liquid
Making your own cleaning products from household ingredients like lemons lets you eliminate many harmful chemicals from your home environment. And, you won’t have to sacrifice cleanliness or quality. Lemons have many properties that ensure clean dishes, from the citric acids that help to remove mineral and hard water deposits to the lemon oil in the rind with bacterial and cleaning properties from limonene – a component used in many commercially prepared cleaning products. Add white vinegar’s cleaning power, and salt as a scouring agent, and you’ve got a complete dish cleaner. The white pith and rind also add pectin, a natural thickening agent.
