Pick up a juicy lemon at your local natural and organic food store, and you’ll have a powerful green cleaner.

Lemon can be used to remove soap scum and clean/shine brass.

Here’s why it works: A lemon’s acidity breaks through soap scum and hard-water deposits, while providing a fresh and natural smell.


  1. Using a spray bottle, spray fresh lemon juice on tile surfaces to get rid of soap scum or hard-water deposits.
  2. Squeeze fresh lemon juice on a cloth, and polish brass around the home.
