Cleaning with Citrus Peels - Homemaking Tips
I have two ziploc bags that stay in my freezer and refrigerator for squeezed out citrus peels. The ziploc in my refrigerator has lemon and lime peels.
1) Sprinkled them with salt to clean metals: copper, brass and pewter
2) Rub them over cutting boards, letting the cutting board sit for a while, wash, rinse clean and dry. The citric acid will bleach out the stains and disinfect the board at the same time.
3) Sprinkle with baking soda and rub onto stained Tupperware. You may need to let it sit over night.
Once they've been used from the refrigerator, they go into the freezer bag.
The ziploc in my freezer has all citrus peels, grapefruit, lemon, lime, oranges, etc. Once they are frozen sprinkle a spoonful of baking soda in the center, and put them through your garbage disposal with a couple of ice cubes.
