Tried & True Tuesday: Lemons + Hard Water Stains

So, on Pinterest (yes, Pinterest again!) I noticed this interesting lemon trick.  it’s supposed to take away hard water spots.  Several blogs have posted about it, so I thought I’d give it a try.


I had this lemon sitting out…It started to get a bit strange, small, and wrinkly so instead of tossing it I decided that I would try and repurpose it.  This trick I wanted to use on my bathroom hardware, because I’ve had issues in Georgia with removing the spots.  I swear, everything that I would try and nothing would work.

So what I did was use the lemon and “scrub” the surface.  It took only a couple minutes but wasn’t too bad.

So next time you have an old lemon….Don’t toss it, see what you can do around the house with it 😉  The rest of the lemon I slice up and tossed in the garbage disposal.  Makes it smell better!
