Holy lemons Batman!.....

If you have read this post, you will know that I love lemons.  The taste, the smell, the color, it all has a positive affect on me.

Today I discovered the power of lemons!  

My son, that I adore in every way, is almost always very helpful.  However, there is one request of mine that he just can't seem to follow through on.  It is using the squeegee in the shower.  Because of this, the glass doors on his shower have been coated with hard water spots that have been a thorn in my side.  I kept telling myself that I shouldn't make a big deal about it, he won't live with me forever, but today I just couldn't stand it anymore.  I have tried things in the past to get the nasty spots off, but until now and short of using the sort of chemicals that would require a hazmat  suit, nothing has really done the trick.  I googled about my dilemma and found a suggestion to scrub the glass with a lemon that has been cut in half.  To make it extra powerful, sprinkle some salt on the cut surface of lemon.  

I decided to give it a try.

I went strait for the good stuff and used the salt combo from the get go.  After I finished scrubbing, I let it sit for a few minutes, gave it a once over again and then rinsed.

"Out damn'd spot!  Out I say!"

Voila!  They were gone.

It was magical.

I love lemons.


  1. Wow, that's a great tip! I faithfully use the squeegee on my shower doors, but can't say the same for my DH.

  2. Thanks for sharing. You never know when that might come in handy. Makes me wonder what my insides look like thanks to a few too many tequila shots in college. They were preceded by licking the salt, drinking the tequila, and then sucking the lemon. Hmmmmmm.
