Hotel Amenities With Lemon

Nothing evokes the feeling of clean quite like the scent of a lemon. The lemon is grown on trees and has many uses, both culinary and otherwise. The lemon’s sour taste evokes puckers everywhere, and is used in moderation when cooking. Grown extensively throughout the world, the lemon is a common plant and has many uses.

The zest and the juice of the lemon are often used in cooking to give a citrus flavor to sauces, meats, poultry, and baked goods. Of course, the always-popular lemonade is a staple for outdoor, summertime refreshment. Additionally, squeezing a bit of lemon juice on fruit can prevent short-term oxidation and therefore keep the fruit from turning brown.

Other than the widely known culinary uses for lemon, the fruit has many additional uses. The smell of lemon has become almost synonymous with the feeling of clean and therefore is used as a deodorizer and the scent of a great number of house cleaning tools. Lemon juice on its own is a great way to remove stains from plastic (good for those discolored food storage containers). It is also used in wood cleaners and the lemon properties dissolve old wax and grime from wood.

Cosmetically, there are quite a few uses for lemon as well including spritzing lemon on your hair (if you are blond) to lighten your hair color (not recommended, but often tried). It is used in aromatherapy and is thought to enhance your mood. Therefore, it is not surprising that lemon is found in assorted bath and shower products.
