That's what happen when you put half a lemon in the dishwasher - the reason is driving people all over the world crazy
It may sound strange to put a squeezed lemon in the dishwasher instead of throwing it in the trash.
But when we heard about the reason behind this trick, we had to share it. It's a cheap trick and yet so effective, and everyone should do it.
We throw too much food to the trash. The quantity is infact amazing.
According to an article that was published not long ago, in the United States, about 50% of all food products are thrown away. It really is a crazy statistic.
There are always recipes that use products that we have too many of them in the fridge. And now we discovered a wonderful new use for lemons.
Instead of squeezing them or throwing them away, use them in the dishwasher to do wonders with dirty plates and cutlery.
Like vinegar and baking soda, lemon is an efficient and environmentally friendly alternative for cleaning.
All you need is half a lemon. You can put it in the cutlery basket in the dishwasher or on the top shelf along with the dirty dishes.
Then turn on the dishwasher as usual and be amazed with the final result.

Lemon juice is one of the best natural cleansers because of its low pH levels and its anti-bacterial properties. Not only does it clean the dishes but gives them a pleasant and fresh smell.
