Yellow drapes are perfect for spring and summer.

Yellow drapes are perfect for spring and summer.

Spring is in full force and summer is on the horizon. There's no better way to relax on a hot summer day than with a refreshing glass of lemonade. In addition to drinking this tangy beverage, you can also use lemon juice to solve various problems around the house. Take a look at some ways you can ensure that you have a happy and healthy home by simply using a citrus fruit.

  • Freshens the air: Instead of opting for chemical-based air fresheners, you can go the all-natural route. Simply slice a lemon and pour water into a small saucepan. Let this mixture simmer over low heat for an hour to fill the room with a zesty aroma.
  • Makes furniture look as good as new: If you notice that your furniture pieces are a bit scratched, don't spend money on expensive new items just yet! You can remedy this problem with a little lemon juice. Combine equal parts vegetable oil with lemon juice and rub these scratches with a soft cloth.
  • Removes odors from the garbage: "Toss lemons in the garbage disposal and run for a few seconds to remove stale odors," writes Sara Novak of home and lifestyle website Ecosalon. "It will keep your kitchen smelling fresh. Run with a handful of ice cubes for even better results."
