We’ve talked about all the many things you can do when life gives you lemons. But I noticed as I clicked around the internet that lemons are useful for a lot more than just food. As it turns out, there are lots of practical uses for lemons, too. You can Google or search Pinterest and find details and instructions for all of these, but I thought I’d get you started with a list.

I still say lemonade is a good go-to use of lemons (not to mention the Lemon Chicken dinners), but here are 21 more things you can with the fruit:

  • Freshen the fridge
  • Refresh cutting boards
  • Keep ants out of the kitchen
  • Keep guacamole green
  • Keep fruit from turning brown
  • Make soggy lettuce crisp
  • Freshen your breath
  • Clear up dandruff
  • Remove berry stains (on skin)
  • Soothe poison ivy rashes
  • Whiten delicate fabrics
  • Clean tarnished brass
  • Rid clothes of mildew
  • Whiten your nails
  • Freshen your garbage disposal
  • Highlight your hair
  • Shine your sink
  • Exfoliate your feet
  • Disinfect wounds
  • Keep rice from sticking
  • Soothe a sore throat

How do you use lemons in your home?
