The leftovers you have from making fresh lemonade can be used for many other applications. One idea is to make a homemade enzyme scrub by using leftover lemon rinds. The scrub is a strong cleaner used to clean most types of surfaces in your home. All you need to do to prepare a batch is to make sure you have the all the tools and materials on hand.

The only equipment you need to make a basic enzyme scrub is a blender. You can also use a food processor if a blender is not available. If you do not have a food processor or blender, then look in a retail store that has a kitchen supply area. Another option is to order an item online at a site such as Amazon. You can even see if a family member or a friend who has a blender you can borrow.

You can use any scraps that are left over from lemons to make a simple enzyme scrub. Orange peels are also a natural item has can be used as a homemade cleaner. The main thing to remember is to have your scraps free of seeds when using a blender or food processor when blending your enzyme scrub.

The key to a simple enzyme scrub is an abrasive. This is an aspect of the cleaning product that requires adding baking soda to the fruit scraps when blending. If you do not have baking soda at home, then the best thing to do is take a trip to your local grocery store.

Make sure to keep your homemade enzyme scrub in a sealed container. A plastic container is perfect as you will want to keep your cleaner in the refrigerator when not being used. Once you start to experiment, you will be surprised at the the uses for this cleaner around your home.
