Air freshener:  make a simple lemon air freshener, use 5-10 drops of Lemon oil in a squirt bottle with distilled water; it depends on how strong you like the smell.  Then spray away!

Bathroom Sanitizer: use a paper towel soaked with several drops of Lemon oil to sanitize bathroom fixtures.

Dishwasher: add 2 drops of Lemon oil to your dishwasher before the wash cycle. Your dishes will shine and your dishwasher will smell great. Use it with a green/eco-friendly dishwasher solution for best results.

House Carpet cleaner:  put 10-15 drops of lemon essential oil to about a cup of baking soda.  Stir with a fork, working to loosen any clumps.  Shake over carpets before vacuuming, allowing the mixture to sit on the carpets awhile will allow it to really deodorize the carpets.

Kill germs: soak your dishcloth overnight in a bowl of water and 4 drop of Lemon oil to disinfect and kill germs.

Stain Remover:  use 1–2 drops to remove gum, oil, grease, grease spots, glue and adhesives, and crayon from most surfaces. Tip: try a test area before to make sure you won’t ruin any finishes.
