It’s a universal fact: no one likes doing the dishes.
It’s a simple task that seems to take way too long and never quite turns out the way you want. Even with a heavy rinse cycle, many times dishes can come out looking like they were barely even touched. Thankfully, the geniuses over at The Kitchn have come up with this super kitchen hack that turns lemons into clean dishes.
Once you have a full load of dishes in your dishwasher, stick a fresh or previously juiced lemon wedge in with the load somewhere where it won’t get moved around. Next, run your dishes through and look at the magic that this tiny lemon slice provides. Your dishes will be shinier and cleaner, and have a bonus of a fresh citrus scent.
The powerful acidity inside of lemons works to provide a great and easy way to clean almost surface, including cutting boards and countertops. Next time you head to the grocery store, pick up an extra lemon or two and see the awesome results for yourself. You might even have enough extra time to make yourself a fresh batch of lemonade and enjoy a life without scrubbing dirty dishes.
