Question: how can you squeeze every drop of juice out of a lemon? A) hit it with a hammer repeatedly; B) put it in a microwave for 20 seconds on high; or C) use a syringe? Answer: B zap it in a microwave for 20 seconds on high. According to Good Housekeeping, microwaving a whole lemon gently warms the fruit up. This loosens up the lemon, thereby making it easier to squeeze. But that’s not the only juicy secret on offer however. Did you know that lemons can be used to clean a chopping board? Just press and rub half a lemon against the board until the juice covers it and then rinse. And there’s more. Tired of having a stinky bin? Squeeze a slice of lemon into the smelly container. Job done. Now that’s what you call a juicy story.
