"Citrus Rinds" Common Things With Uncommon Uses


1. Suet bowl.
Race a suet-bird seed mixture in an empty orange or grapefruit half; suspend with string from a backyard tree.
2. Nail groomer.
Press nail tips into the pithy side of a lemon rind to clean them after doing dirty chores.

3. Pan cleaner. To clean a blackened aluminum pan, boil citrus rinds in it. If any discoloration remains, rub with a steel-wool pad.
 

4. Tea flavoring. Add citrus peel to tea leaves while they’re brewing or put several small strips in a cup of just-boiled water with a teabag.
 

5. Potpourri. Add rinds to simmering cinnamon and cloves to fill your home with a wonderful aroma.
 

6. Cutting board freshener. Rub a lemon rind over your cutting board to clean and deodorize it.
 

7. Fireplace freshener. Add some dried citrus rinds to the fire for a spicy fragrance.
 

8. Deodorizer. Put small mesh bags filled with orange or lemon peels in drawers and closets.
