Do you remember the day when you left half a lemon in your refrigerator drawer, but didn’t know what to do with it, and days later, it went bad and you had to throw it away?
But, if you have a mini fridge, you can store lemon longer. So don’t rush, choose the best idea to take advantage of the half lemon.
1. Eliminate odors in the refrigerator
With the half lemon, you can remove fridge odors with ease. You have several options: place the half lemon on the middle shelf, or dampen a cotton ball or sponge with lemon juice and leave it in the fridge for several hours. Don’t forget to remove the stuff that causes the bad smell.
2. Keep avocado from rusting
As we all know, if cut the surface of an avocado, it turns brown quickly. But if you sprinkle a few drops of lemon juice on it, you can keep its characteristics longer. This is very useful if you are preparing guacamole, fajitas or even just make a salad with avocado.
3. Give a touch of flavor to grilled chicken breasts
You have two options: marinate the chicken in lemon juice for a few minutes to catch the flavor, or add a few drops of lemon when your breasts are almost ready.
4. Remove frying fish odors
Even if your covering is very powerful, there’s fishy smell that comes after frying or broiling some kind of fishes, e.g. Sardine. To get rid of fish odors, our trick is to add a slice of lemon in the pan to eliminate the bad odor.
5. To make baked fish!
If you add lemon slices to the inside of the fish when you're baking it in the oven, it not only removes the fishy smell that is impregnated into the oven, but also adds a hint of fresh flavor to your fish.
6. Clean the chopping board
Give your chopping board a spa treatment weekly by simply using lemon and salt. Sprinkle the cutting board with coarse salt, then scour the surface using the half lemon, let sit for a few minutes and rinse the board.
7. Take a lemon juice fasting
Lemon juice fasting has purifying effects. Use half lemon that you have left in the fridge, mix it with warm water and drink it the first thing in the morning on an empty stomach.
8. Wash your hands to remove odors
If you work with fish or garlic, your hands smells bad. Just rub the half lemon over your palms. You already know what to do with it!
9. Remove stains from Tupperware
Plastic containers are found throughout the modern kitchen, which stain very easily. Just rub it with lemon juice and leave it in the sun for 1 or 2 days.
10. Clean Lime taps
If you live in a hard water area, you're used to the mineral deposits. To clean away lime scale, use the half lemon to remove them. Just dip a cloth in the juice and rub over the areas that are stained.

Woah did not realize half lemon could be put to such good use as well, very nice I must say! I have had assignment writers ask me about its usage but I did not know earlier. This has been some largely informative work, thanks!
