Baking soda and lemon

A pairing that’s packed a punch since the olden days, helping to alkalize the body and boost the immune system.

Confess: your grandparents advised you, after a large meal, to relieve the feeling of heaviness and acidity with lemon juice and baking soda, right?
To relieve heartburn and immediately feel lighter, simply dissolve 1 teaspoon of baking soda in a glass of water and add Limmi lemon juice. As easy as drinking a glass of water!

Eliminate small and large annoyances

Baking soda is an antacid par excellence and its properties, combined with those of lemon, are a true panacea to boost digestion, fix bad breath problems and eliminate unsightly stains on teeth or clothing.

Baking soda and lemon also help ease stress. Try this regenerating foot bath after hiking or at the end of a working day, perhaps in heels.

And if the stress is from an insect bite, create a paste by combining 1 tablespoon of water, ½ tablespoon of baking soda and 3 drops of lemon juice. Apply to the skin to reduce discomfort.

Homemade, ecological and economical cleaner

The abrasive properties of baking soda make it a natural and sustainable detergent, within reach of the pantry, to remove stains, dirt and bad odors.

Try placing a small bowl with a couple of tablespoons of baking soda and ½ tablespoon of lemon juice in the fridge and you’ll smell that citrusy fresh scent!

This pairing is also perfect for helping you with the change of season or to degrease washable surfaces.

Want to disinfect your dishwasher? Try adding 50g of baking soda along with 1 tablespoon of Limmi lemon juice to the tray, then running an empty cycle at high temperature.

To clean and perfume the washing machine drum, however, take 150 ml of lemon juice and dissolve it in 1 liter of water. Pour the liquid into the drum and run an empty wash cycle at 60°. To clean the internal seals and the detergent compartment from any residue or mould, take a basin and pour 200 ml of water, 1 tablespoon of baking soda, 1 tablespoon of vinegar and 1 tablespoon of Limmi lemon juice.
Dip a sponge in the natural solution and rub well on the select parts.

These baking soda and lemon juice home remedies will work for some people, but may not be suitable for everyone. Check with your doctor first. Do not exceed doses and be careful when combining baking soda with other ingredients: it can be abrasive and negatively affect the skin’s pH.
