After I use lemons or limes in a recipe, I recycle them by running the leftover portion around my kitchen sink drain to sanitize that area. Often a quarter or half of a leftover lemon or lime will work nicely.

These natural cleaning products help my kitchen sink smell fresh, and cleaning with lemons and limes in this manner gives the fruits another job to do before I add them to the compost.
