### How do you enjoy lemon?

Hey guys I've got a bunch of lemons but I've no idea besides squeezing them to juice.

What other ways can lemon be used?   PS: I'm not used to alchohol.

I cut them in slices and eat them, the rind and all.

Get one or more of them, and you've got yourself juggling balls. Or, cut the skin off of them, tighten the strength of the rind, and use it as a skipping rope. Make sure it is not too long or short!

juggling balls, interesting. But tennis balls will do. Rind-a skipping rope, nice joke, hehe!

Any new ideas, guys or gals?? I heard it could be used in a dish or something, to make shrimp taste fresh etc.

Eh, I find life is easier without them.  Seriously though, they are fine.  While I'm sure citrus acid does some damage, you should be more worried about phosphoric acid, the stuff in soda and orange juice.  And by "worry more", I really mean not at all.  Just don't hold either in your mouth for 10 minutes or more (a day and you're teeth would be gone).

I saw an experiment testing whether that was true or not (probably Mythbusters or something) and that's actually not quite true.

Your teeth wouldn't disappear, they'd just go black and icky. So that's a much better outcome.

Why did the vector cross the road?
It wanted to be normal.

Recently I came across an assertion that brush your teeth with lemon can make them whiter...

You can boil some water and put it in a cup, then press some citrus into it and add a teabag, which will make the water absorb the tea better. I think.

Might as well brush your teeth with a candy bar.  It may make your teeth whiter, it would also help decay them.

You can recognize the taste of the acid in lemons more so than oranges.  However, this does not mean that the acid in lemons is stronger than the acid in orange juice.  Does that make sense?

### Re: How do you enjoy lemon?

So is it ascorbic acid vs. phosphoric acid??

My Mom says lemons can make your microwave smell better by
microwaving some lemon juice in a bowl and let it sit in there for a while.
Also, lemon rind is used in some cakes.
And lemon juice can help to clean your hands after peeling potatos or onions.
