Copper Pots and Pans
Over time, pots and pans can lose their luster. Scrubbing them with a mixture of lemon juice and salt is an easy way to bring back their shine.
Inside of The Microwave
Put a bowl of warm water and sliced lemons in the microwave for several minutes, letting the water boil and release steam. Afterwards, carefully remove the bowl from the microwave and wipe out the interior with a clean cloth.
Cutting boards get a lot of use. They can be used to chop all sorts of foods from garlic to apples.

Let the juices sit on the board for at least 20 minutes before giving the cutting board a thorough cleaning.
