“You’re basically going to use the lemon and the salt” and scrub, she said. “It’s clean, it smells delicious, and it’s all natural,” she said.
2. You can even clean bathroom faucets with lemons. “You’re going to rub the whole faucet. It’s going to smell delicious. I’m going to take a clean cloth and rub it off,” she said.
3. Before you throw out that last piece of tin foil, ball it up and you can use it again to clean a dirty pan. “You’re going to use a little bit of dish soap,” she said, demonstrating how it cleans the pan.
4. There's another way to clean a baked-on mess. Shoals’ next cleaning tip looks like a high school science experiment.

5. Today, so many people are using juicers and blenders, so hard to clean.
“You put a few drops of dish soap in there and about a cup of water. You put the blender on. Rinse off the blender and you’ve got it completely cleaned,” she said.
