3 Uses for Lemon Essential oil

Did you know you don't have to go out and buy a separate cleaning product for each job you want to do.  Some simple household items can take care of multiple problems without adding harsh chemicals and fragrances to your environment.  Some may even help purify the air you breath every day.  
Lemon essential oil can take care of a multitude of pesky cleaning problems while leaving your home smelling fresh and clean.

1. Label and Sticky Residue Remover
Do you ever buy something special, but when you take the price tag or label off you are left with an annoying sticky residue?  Here is a simple solution that works incredibly well.  

Remove the sticker or label from the object.  Rub several drops of lemon essential oil onto the sticky surface.  Test on a small area first to be sure the oil won't damage the item you are cleaning.  Work the oil into the residue, then dip a sponge into warm water and wipe it clean.  

2. Crayon and Pencil Mark Remover for Walls
If you have little ones running around your house, rest assured you will one day be dealing with marked up walls! This simple solution will take it right off.  

On a damp cloth or sponge, add a few drops of lemon essential oil.  Gently rub the crayon or pencil marks until they disappear.  Clean a small test patch to make sure the lemon oil won't damage your paint.  

3. Surface Cleaner
Add 5 to 6 drops of lemon essential oil to 1ounce of water and 1ounce of rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle to clean, disinfect and deodorize countertops, sinks, tables, wood cutting boards, appliances and other surfaces.
