Make Dishes Fresh and Sparkly with a Lemon Wedge In the Dishwasher

Lemons have the power to remove rust from your knives and de-stink your garbage disposal. They can also make a load of dishes smell great and shine like they're brand new.

It's no secret that lemon juice combats odour and gets stuff clean, and Cambria Bold at The Kitchn found a way to easily harness that power in your dishwasher. Every time you do a load of dishes, stick a lemon wedge in the top rack on a skewer or in your cutlery stand. After a normal wash, you'll get a faint lemon scent and the tiny bit of citric acid left in the wedge will make everything look spotless.

You can even do this with a used lemon wedge if you have any left over from cooking or other tasks. Don't throw those leftover wedges out — throw them in the dishwasher!
