Lemons are often used for making shikanji and other refreshing drinks during summer months. There is nothing more satisfying than a glass full of chilled Nimbu Pani. After making these summer drinks, we often throw the lemon peels away. However, these lemon peels can work extremely well as cleaning agents. Let’s find out how you can reuse lemon peels for cleaning purposes and more. 

Cleaning liquid

You can make an all-purpose cleaning agent using lemon peels. Put lemon peels in a jar, add a cup of white vinegar and water to it. Let the mixture sit for some time, and then transfer it into a spray bottle, removing the peels. You can use this to clean furniture, kitchen countertops and tables.
