10 things about lemon that I love


As salam,

Lemon is an interesting fruit. It’s an all purpose fruit with 1001 usage. I have to say that this a must have fruit in ur fridge. Apart from its extensive use in culinary, it can also provide aid in our household chores. Read the list. lemon

1. Freshen the Fridge
Remove refrigerator odors with ease. Dab lemon juice on a cotton ball or sponge and leave it in the fridge for several hours. Please make sure that u have toss out any malodorous items that might be causing the bad smell.

2.Refresh Cutting Boardslemon1
To get rid of the smell and help sanitize the cutting board, rub it all over with the cut side of half a lemon or wash it in undiluted juice straight from the bottle.

3. Keep Insects Out of the Kitchen
This is our biggest enemy I believed. You don’t need insecticides or ant traps to ant-proof your kitchen. Just give it the lemon treatment. First squirt some lemon juice on door thresholds and windowsills. Then squeeze lemon juice into any holes or cracks where the ants are getting in. Finally, scatter small slices of lemon peel around the outdoor entrance. The ants will get the message that they aren’t welcome. Lemons are also effective against roaches and fleas: Simply mix the juice of 4 lemons (along with the rinds) with 1/2 gallon (2 liters) water and wash your floors with it; then watch the fleas and roaches flee. They hate the smell.

4.Deodorize Your Garbage
If your garbage is beginning to smell yucky, here’s an easy way to deodorize it: Save leftover lemon and orange peels and toss them at the base under the bag. To keep it smelling fresh, repeat once every couple of weeks.

5. Clean and Whiten Nailslemon2
Save ur money on menicure & pedicure. 🙂 Add the juice of 1/2 lemon to 1 cup warm water and soak your fingertips in the mixture for 5 minutes. After pushing back the cuticles, rub some lemon peel back and forth against the nail.

6.Treat Flaky Dandruff
If itchy, scaly dandruff has you scratching your head, just massage two tablespoons lemon juice into your scalp and rinse with water. Then stir one teaspoon lemon juice into one cup water and rinse your hair with it. Repeat daily until your dandruff disappears.

7. Remove Warts (ketuat)warts
pply a dab of lemon juice directly to the wart using a cotton swab. Repeat for several days until the acids in the lemon juice dissolve the wart completely.

8. Boost Laundry Detergent
For more powerful cleaning action, pour 1 cup lemon juice into the washer during the wash cycle. The natural bleaching action of the juice will zap stains and remove rust and mineral discolorations from cotton T-shirts and briefs and will leave your clothes smelling fresh. Your clothes will turn out brighter and also come out smelling lemon-fresh.

9. Cleanse Your Face
Dab lemon juice on blackheads to draw them out during the day. You can also wash your face with lemon juice for a natural cleanse and exfoliation. Your skin should improve after several days of treatment. Lemon water is also a cooling agent, best way to beat the heat.

10. Make a Room Scent/Humidifier
Freshen and moisturize the air in your home by simmering water contain lemon peels, cinnamon sticks, cloves, and apple skins.

Have fun 🙂



Moms u gotta try this!


As salam,

I was browsing and I found these. They’re great n helpful. Plus we can help the world through recycle (chewahhhh) ;p. Come on, being a mom means u need to be creative.


Picture above (macam dalam thesis pulak dah) showing how we can re-use our mineral water bottle. Simply cut the above part, attach to the biscuits, candy or snacks wrapper n re-seal ’em back. Perfect when we’re on the go. Masa balik kampung, stop kat r&r, anak2 beli twisties pastu tak abih makan. Kalau biar kang masuk angin pulak. Ada mineral water yang dah habis, boleh la guna.


Hmm… this one untuk yang pakai contact lenses. Basuh bersih2 dulu ye, lepas tu guna utk isi ur pills when u’re on short trips.


Pegi hotel mesti dapat shower cap. Jarang pakai pun. This is good idea. Simpan kasut, slippers, sandals.


Too bad we’ve thrown away our kids crib. Kalau tak dah boleh jadi working/studying/conteng-ing table for the kids. Mommies out there, check out ur garage or bawah tangga kalau2 ada lagi crib ni ye. 😉


Kita cukup tak suka nak bagi anak2 makan ice cream macam ni. Nanti meleleh sana sini. Kalau nak makan jugak it’s either u stay outside ataupun bentang tikar sebesar2 alam. The lapik pulak dengan besen besor. But now, I think they can have it.


Every rumah might have this. I bought this walaupun jaranggggg sangat buat telur rebus. So now dah tambah satu lagi kegunaan. Maybe boleh guna utk potong pisang jugak untuk buat banana split kan? I love this idea.


Here’s another, when the can is too cold, tak nak pegang. Ataupun takut tertumpah dalam kereta. Put it into another cup.


Okay… We buy a lot of pringles or mister potato. But I used the empty can as a tabung. Tapi berapa banyak tabung nak ada kat rumah tu? U can use it to save ur spaghetti.
