Lemons and Laundry

Bleaching White Clothes With Lemon Juice
Mix 1/2 cup lemon juice (or sliced lemons with one gallon of very hot water. Soak the clothes in the solution. Do not use on silk, it is best for cotton and polyester. Let the clothes soak from one hour to overnight, depending on how badly the clothes need bleaching. Remove the clothing from the mix and pour the mix into the washing machine and wash as usual. It's impossible to over-bleach using lemon juice.

Removing Rust Stains From Clothes
Put lemon juice on the rust stain and then sprinkle cream of tartar onto the top of the juice. Rub in the solution and let it sit on the stain until the rust is gone. The citric acid will take the rust off. some stains are tougher than others, but 15 to 30 minutes should work just fine. Launder as usual.
