Tip o’ the Week

*Tips that are NEAT-tO know!*

Microwave your lemon for 5-8 seconds before juicing or roll it on the counter several times, pressing it against your palm.
It makes it easier to squeeze and you’ll get more juice from it!

Zesting is best and easiest when your lemon is VERY chill.

When squeezing the juice from a lemon half directly into a recipe,
squeeze with the cut end against your palm and facing up to avoid dropping seeds into it.

It’s o.k. to get the juice all over your nails. In fact, it brightens them!

Fresh cut fruit will keep looking fresh longer if lightly coated in lemon juice.

Add lemon juice to your vinegar for cleaning to neutralize the smell.

Lemon juice is a degreaser!
Put lemon slices in a bowl with water and microwave it until very hot.
This will make cleaning your microwave easier.

Use lemon juice to remove lime from faucets and taps.
