If you only need a little lemon juice when cooking, you can store the lemon longer if you first stick a toothpick into the lemon and squeeze the juice out of the created hole. When done, you can insert the toothpick back into the lemon and put the lemon back into the fridge.
Have fleas to kill? Use lemon extract! The first thing to do is buy or make lemon extract. To make it, just thinly slice a lemon, put it in a small jar, and cover it with boiling water. Allow that to sit overnight and in the morning you can pour it into a spray bottle for use.
To treat your dog with it, all you need to do is apply the extract to your dog’s fur and rub it into the skin. You can use a spray bottle, but many dogs dislike those, so it’s best not to traumatize your best friend. DO NOT use it on cats, however, because they can be allergic to citrus.
Be sure to cover carpets, bedding, and furniture with it.
