Things You'll Need
Powdered Lemonade Mix
Citric acid is a great cleanser; you probably have some in your home. Do you know where? Powdered lemonade mix!
1. You can get dingy toilets shiny again with a scoop of this mix, dump it in the bowl and let it sit for fifteen minutes or so while you clean the rest of the bathroom. Then just come back, swish and flush!
2. Clogged showerhead? Dissolve a scoop of lemonade mix in some hot water and soak the fixture overnight to rid it of mineral deposits and build-up. Just a side note, do not use lemon-based cleansers on brass fixtures.
3. That same citric acid will clean the inside of your dishwasher. Fill the soap cup and run the machine through a cycle with no dishes. It will clean the racks, the jets and walls with ease!
4. Lemon juice will remove berry stains and garlic odors from your hands. Wet your hands, rub a scoop of lemonade mix into them and scrub. The gritty powder will scrub your hands clean and the citric acid will remove stains and odors from your skin!
5. Lemonade mix will also come in handy in the laundry room. Make it into a paste with some cool water and spread it over stains like coffee, tea, red wine and rust. Just remember to test your clothes for colorfastness.
