QUICK TIPS: I love using lemons in just about anything, from ice trays to pitchers of water at dinner parties. They also come in handy with household chores. To get the nasty grime out of our microwave, I place 4 tablespoons of lemon juice in water and boil it for two minutes in the microwave. The combination helps stuck on gunk slip right off! To shine up a stained wooden chopping board, I sprinkle sugar on a slice of lemon and rub it on the surface. Let it sit over night and the next day it's just like new! To keep our stainless steel looking shiny and new I use a dab of Olive Oil on a rag, wipe it on (toasters, coffee pots, tea kettles, etc.) and wipe it off with a clean rag. And to polish my everyday silver I dab a bit of toothpaste (regular, nothing fancy..) on a rag and rub it in. In just a few seconds my silver shines like the brightest star in the room.
