The humble lemon can be used to do a lot more than just use in culinary delights. Some uses of lemon in house cleaning:
Clean your metalware
Copper, brass and chrome metal ware can be easily cleaned by lemon.
Clean your Microwave
Slice a lemon in small pieces, put in bowl of water and microwave for 30-45 seconds. The stains would become easier to wipe and all the unpleasant odours of microwave will vanish too
Keep your fridge odour free
Cut a wedge of lemon and keep it in your refrigerator. It will take care of any bad smell in your fridge.
Keep your Laundry fresh smelling
Add one teaspoon of lemon juice to the laundry along with detergent. It will result in a fresh, clean scent to socks, undergarments and other clothing.
Prevent lime scales in bathroom
Rub the faucets with lemon juice and let it sit overnight. Rinse in the morning
Some more uses
Lemon juice can also be used to clean glass and sanitise chopping boards.

I have been away from this blog for quite some time. Actually, was chilling with family members after a hectic 2 months.
When I returned, the front page of Times of India, caught my eyes. It talked about Solar Power Plant for houses.
It specifically says that it is not a solar inverter but a power plant. Being in the field of Environment, I am aware of Solar Power Plants for Industrial use. But for domestic purpose is new.
What do you think, will it succeed in India?

I had been toying with the idea of writing a blog since long time. But never could muster the courage to start one. I always thought, what if no one read it? What if no one liked it? What if I get negative comments?
But when I started this blog, I was surprised with the love and encouragement and lovely comments given by all of you. Some 40 odd posts later, I can say that I am very happy that I finally started the blog. I met (online) so many of you wonderful bloggers, writing such wonderful posts. I felt so welcome here. A heartfelt thanks to all of you.
And I am pleased to announce that very soon I am starting an online market for organic clothing and cosmetics for everyone- from babies to gentlemen and ladies. No worries of picking natural, green, herbal, eco-friendly things as organic, because this market will only have organic. And since organic does not have chemicals you will have an added advantage of using eco-friendly, non-toxic and safe products.
I hope that you would shower the same love and affection to this venture too.
Please sign in with your email on our website www.ecomartindia.com to know about its launch. Tell your friends too. There is going to lot of fun at launch. Everyone is invited :)
