You’ve already read that drinking water with fresh lemon is an excellent way to BOOST your health.

And I’m willing to bet that after squeezing that lemon, you most likely toss it in the trash because it has been used – RIGHT?


Lemon peels are a valuable commodity – especially when it comes to cleaning your home.

Check out these USEFUL ways you can use lemon peels to have a sparkling clean (and healthy) home.

Why Lemon Peels?

Conventional cleaners are made with synthetic fragrances and harmful chemicals, which:

  • Contain hazardous chemicals
  • Can irritate your skin
  • Cause respiratory problems
  • Are poisonous if ingested

How To Use Lemon Peels To Clean Your House

All Purpose Cleaner
  • Helps cut grease and disinfect
  • Place lemon peels in a glass jar. Pour white vinegar over the peels until fully submerged
    • Allow the solution to sit for 2 weeks
    • Strain the liquid and combine it with water, using a 50/50 ratio
  • Use as your normally would use an all purpose cleaner!
Odor Absorber
  • Freshen up your fridge by placing a lemon peel inside
  • Throw a few lemon peels in the bottom of your trash can to help dispel odors
  • Add lemon peels to your dishwasher to help rinse and deodorize it
  • “Clean” your garbage disposal by putting a few small slices of lemon peel down it
Insect Repellent
  • Get rid of ants and other insects by placing small slices of lemon along your:
    • Windowsills
    • Door entrances
    • Near cracks or holes
  • Ants do not like lemon, meaning it will keep them from coming in your home!
    • Also effective for roaches and fleas
Sanitize Surfaces
  • Lemon’s natural acidity provides excellent antibacterial properties
  • Rub surfaces (such as your cutting board) with half a lemon
    • Let it sit for 5 minutes before rinsing with water
Restore Metal
  • Clean your stainless steel, chrome and copper by sprinkling sea salt on the metal and then using a lemon peel to scrub it
    • Removes dirt, grime and stain
  • Rinse and polish
Air Freshener
  • Make a scented humidifier by putting lemon peels in a pot of water
    • Simmer on the lowest setting on your stove
    • Will humidify and scent the air

Who knew that one little lemon could have the power to keep your body HEALTHY and your home sparkling clean. SCORE!

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
