lemonLemon juice and lemon oil are the perfect choices for dusting, and for a number of reasons. As aromatherapy, the pure essential oil of lemon is uplifting and refreshing. Who doesn’t need help like that when one is cleaning? As a wood cleaner, pure lemon oil is lubricating and antiseptic, a perfect combo to get everything really clean without drying out the wood. Freshly squeezed lemon juice is an acid that neutralizes alkaline odors and is remarkable for pulling out dirt and killing dust mites.
