LEMONS or limes – interesting range of uses:

• Start your day with a glass of warm water and lime juice. This Ayurvedic tradition is said to alkalise the body, fight inflammation, enhance digestion and promote weight loss. If nothing else, itand#039;s hydrating and loaded with antioxidants and immunity-boosting vitamin C.

• Clean a microwave. Fill a microwave-safe bowl with half a cup of water, two tablespoons of baking soda and half a lime, then cook on high for about four minutes. Wipe off the muck loosened by the steam.

• Garlic, onions and other ingredients in food can leave hands smelly after cutting. To banish the unsavoury odor, scrub your hands with lemon juice afterwards.

• Add two teaspoons of lemon or lime juice, and one teaspoon each of bleach and sugar to a vase full of warm water. This DIY concoction will help keep the bouquet looking perky. The bleach kills bacteria, the sugar feeds the flowers and the lime juice acidifies the water
