The Power of Lemons – For home, health and beauty

Lemon Power

The title of this article, The Power of Lemons, is really an understatement.  When I decided to write this article I had no idea just how powerful lemons really were.  As I did my research I realized that one article would be way too long to summarize all of the information I was gathering.  Since the power of lemons spans across all of my content and then some, I really wanted to present my readers with all of the information I could.  So,  I have decided to break this article up into four sections with this article being the introduction.   Below you will find a link in every category on Home Aide Good about lemons.  Cooking with lemons, cleaning with lemons, using lemons as medicine and a post on lemons under my newly created category, Homemade Cosmetics, which was inspired by you know what… yup, Lemons!
I played around with the idea of creating this new category some time ago.  Up until now I have categorized my homemade cosmetics posts under the Home Remedies category.  Lemons have changed the game my friends.  The recipes and tips I discovered on using lemons to beautify oneself deserves a class of its own.  Click one or click them all, but, above all, please enjoy my tribute to The Power of Lemons.

Anyway, I’ve compiled a list of the more practical vinegar cleaning solutions that I use most often around the house.  In the last month, I have cleaned with white vinegar in the following ways:
