Lemons come with a long list of health benefits, and it’s one of the most versatile fruits on the market. Most people use it to make lemonade, salad dressing, and cocktails, but did you know that lemons come with a long list of other practical uses that you’ve been sleeping on?

Brown Fruits and Veggies

It’s so annoying when your avocados, apples, bananas, and other fruits and veggies turn brown, but you can use a few squeezes of juice to slow the oxidation and keep them fresh for longer.

Fresh Lettuce

Lemon juice can also be used to refresh your leafy greens. Soak your lettuce in cold water with a few drops of lemon juice, refrigerate it for an hour, and it will be almost as good as new.

No Sticky Rice

A few drops of lemon juice can also do wonders for your rice. Just add them to your cooking water, and you won’t have to deal with sticky, clumpy rice ever again.

No Cracked Eggs

If you’re tired of dealing with cracked boiled eggs, lemon juice will help you put this nightmare to an end. Brushing the eggshells with lemon juice can stop them from cracking and make them easier to peel off.
