Lemons have a lovely golden coat that oftentimes goes discarded. With all the scraps leftover from Brittney's luscious Lemon and Sugar Crepes (Fresh Squeezed Lemon, Salted Butter, Three Sugars), Urban Green Lab pounced on the opportunity to turn waste to resource.
Our Sunday Fund'ay in the Park activity for August was DIY Lemon face and home cleaners.When you work with natural and safe ingredients, you begin to see how products that clean your home also clean your body. Baking soda, vinegar, water, lemon scraps, and some herbs for added fragrant and antibacterial punch, we had a great time concocting natural, affordable, and fun cleaning products with our sustainable food truck friends in Sevier Park. Thanks to S'more Love Bakery, Taste of Nature, and Crepe A Diem for serving up delicious grub while we made use of those lemons!
Lemons are endlessly useful. Before you throw out those scraps, check out these 10 helpful tips on utilizing lemon waste.
