    Lemon toothpaste

    Sometimes all it takes is a few ingredients to create  eco-friendly, cost-effective solutions  that can fit into your home cleaning routine. This is the case  of the combo between toothpaste and lemon . Toothpaste has a friction effect that can remove plaque and clean teeth. However, it can be combined in other strategic ways to take advantage of all its properties, one of them being lemon. Lemon contains a lot of citric acid, an acid typically found in fruits. Lemon acid is very strong and is often used in detergents, shampoos, creams and lotions. For this reason, with these two ingredients you can create a fantastic  versatile mixture that is perfect for any surface.

    How to create the ecological and economical solution with lemon and toothpaste

    Cut the lemon into cubes

    First, to create the perfect mixture you need a  lemon and a tube of toothpaste (it’s  fine even opened). The first step is to cut the lemon into cubes: first, remove it from the ends, cut it into slices of about one centimeter and finally cut the slices into four quarters.

    Cheap homemade mix

    Place the lemon cubes in a blender,  add a glass of water  and operate the blender until you obtain a semi-liquid pulp. Transfer the mixture into a bowl and squeeze 6 or 7 centimeters of toothpaste into it. Toothpaste is a mixture that is difficult to break down, so use a fork to mix vigorously until the ingredients are perfectly blended.

    create homemade mixture to clean dishes

    Once done, cover the bowl with cling film and  let the dough rest  for about 10 minutes. Once the time has passed, make small holes with a toothpick and place in the refrigerator to eliminate all the bacteria. Leave to act for 5 hours so that the citric acid, together with the toothpaste, releases its disinfectant and refreshing properties.
