Lemons have myriad uses around the house beyond just cooking. You can use them for an instant beauty treatment by simply digging your clean, unpolished fingernails into the lemon; its natural antibacterial and whitening properties will help make your nails look cleaner and healthier. Rubbing a cut lemon over cutting boards helps disinfect and remove stains at the same time, too. When you’re done, toss the used lemons into your garbage disposal with ice and turn on your disposal (with the faucet running) to freshen it.
