Greetings Thrifty Friends,
These days these kinds of tips are called 'Life Hacks' but thrifty-minded people have been using these tricks for decades, and making their lives just a little bit easier all while saving some money.
Today I would like to discuss lemons and lemon juice. It's not just good for making tea and spraying on fish!

TODAY'S THRIFTY TIP:
Never throw a squeezed lemon away without first using it to rub over yours hands and elbows. It softens, cleans and bleaches them.
Rinse fingernails and hands daily in a lemon rinse.
Rub lemon juice on the skin to banish blackheads and acne.
Mix lemon juice with salt and use to rub off dead skins cells on the thighs elbows, knees and other problem areas.
Worried that all that acidic citrus will dry out your skin? Don't mess with expensive, designer moisturizers when you probably already have something in your bathroom cabinet that is just as good.
Petroleum jelly makes a great moisturizer. Wash your face and while it is still wet apply a tiny amount of jelly.
Continue rubbing in a circular motion adding very warm water until jelly is spread evenly. Your skin will be soft and non- greasy even in the winter.
