Five Ways to Clean With Lemon

The lemon has been used in creating artificial smells for cleaning products for a long time, but few people recognize that this is because lemon is an excellent natural cleaning product in the first place! You will find that there is a great deal that you can do to ensure that you are getting the best from the natural products that you can find in your house, rather than using toxic chemicals for the domestic cleaning. Having a look over the strange and wonderful uses for things like lemon will open you up to a whole new way of looking at the house cleaning. Whilst many people, contract cleaners included, will simply go for the strongest product, sometimes it is better to go with something a little more natural and Eco friendly if you can.

For a start, the acid in lemon Is what gives it all of its cleaning abilities. You will find that the acid cuts through most grease and grime rather nicely, resulting in a clean that leaves you with a sparkling finish, though you may not have expected it. There is a lot to be said for trying out lemon in a variety of different ways, and one of the first ones to mention here is as a dishwashing agent. If you slice a lemon in half, you have a great washing up tool. You simply rub the open end against the dirt, and it will be broken down easily. Try adding a little baking soda to help it on its way with some fixing action.

If you make a mixture of one part lemon juice to one part water, and keep it in a spray bottle, you will have an excellent surface cleaning spray. This will work just as well as any branded household cleaning product, and will help with everything in your home cleaning schedule. You will find that the resulting clean gets rid of dirt, but also kills germs, because of its acidity. If you have a particularly tough bit of cleaning to do, then try using the lemon juice neat, as this will be a lot more powerful.

You will find that the smell of a lemon is enough to make a place feel clean! If you are battling nasty smells in the house, then try scooping out a lemon rind and leaving a little baking soda in newly formed cup of skin. Leaving this in the fridge or a room that smells will absorb the smell, and leave instead the freshness of the lemon rind!

If you have mold on fabrics in your clothing or you need to get rid of it as part of your upholstery cleaning or carpet cleaning, then you will find that lemon is a great way to do so. The natural acid is a great way to kill the mold off, and you will find that it is excellent for removing the stain that it can leave behind. You should just apply a little neat lemon to the area with a cloth or sponge, and rub away at it. Leave it to dry in the sun if you can, as the UV rays will help finish off the mold, but this can bleach certain colors, so be careful! You can use this trick on other stains, though for some stains it won’t be as tough as it may need to be, and other stain removers may be needed.

Building Blocks for Virtual Businesses : Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world

This is a guest post by Ripley Daniels about "Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world.

Whenever I tell friends I had a tough day at the office, they laugh at me. That's because they know I don't really have an office. I work very hard but I work for a company that is completely remote. Only a few of my co-workers ever go into an office at all and when they do, it's only for short periods of time. Our "office" is a virtual one. To us, the traditional office workplace is a thing of the past, alongside Tyrannosaurus Rex, the slide rule, and telephones where you stick your finger in a hole and turn a dial.
Unfortunately, none of this prevents me from having tough days. I still have them. But the reasons have nothing to do with the fact that my co-workers and I don't have a brick and mortar edifice that we can use to plan, strategize, hold our meetings, make presentations, discuss sensitive business topics, build relatio…

AMOLED display coming to Samsung Galaxy Tab range

This is a guest post by Erica about the arrival of AMOLED display to Samsung Galaxy Tab range.Samsung could be transplanting a seven inch AMOLED screen into an upcoming addition to its Galaxy Tab range of tablet computers.

You may have experienced an AMOLED display in a small portable device before as Samsung, Nokia and HTC have all used them in smartphones to date. However, the expense of producing AMOLED screens has prohibited them from appearing on larger devices like tablets, until now.


The seven inch Galaxy Tab was launched last year but an update with an AMOLED screen would be most welcome, cutting energy consumption and improving colours and contrast ratios across the board.


The rumours about this device state that it will run Android 3.0, feature a three megapixel camera on the rear, a two megapixel snapper on the front and have a display resolution of 1024x600 which is not bad for a device of this size.


The hardware powering the new Galaxy Tab will consist of a 1.2GHz processor w…

Smart Investors: Three Real Estate Scams You Should Never Fall For

“Honesty is a very expensive gift. Do not expect it to come from cheap people.” –Warren Buffet

 There has never been any doubt that succeeding in real estate takes hard work, determination and commitment.

 It is not some get rich quick scheme as some have been misled to believe. It takes laborious work to see any real results and unfortunately, not all individuals in the industry are prepared for that kind of dedication just to succeed. Resultantly, some would give up with the belief that they are not cut out for that kind of line of work while the rest would resort to sleazy machinations just to guarantee a sale.

 From there, all sorts of scams and fraudulent schemes are cooked up and it is unfortunate that there are investors (especially novices and first-timers) who would be none the wiser and would buy into the scam. No doubt, the real estate industry is a sector that can be extremely profitable. But as it was stressed above, it requires hard work and unfortunately, some people a…
