The next time you squeeze a lemon, don’t toss the cut fruit into the trash. Instead, put the wrung-out lemon on the top rack of your dishwasher. The natural citric acid in lemon will work to leave your dishes spotless. And it also helps freshen, leaving a very faint lemon smell. When it’s time to unload the dishwasher, you can take the very used lemon and toss it into the garbage disposal with some ice; the lemon will disinfect and the ice will sharpen the blades. Triple-duty idea!
