How to Clean Your Home Using Fresh Lemons

February 26, 2015 6:02 pm

If you’re trying to cut down on the harmful chemicals that you use in your home, one of the best ways to do so is by cleaning with fresh lemons. This decades-old cleaning trick not only makes your home smell great, it also acts as a natural disinfectant to help rid your home of germs. Here are a few ways to clean with lemons.

  1. Cut a lemon in half and sprinkle coarse salt on the pulp. By using gentle scrubbing motions, you can use this natural combination to clean discolored brass.
  2. Scrub the grout from between ceramic tile in the shower by sprinkling lemon juice onto an old toothbrush.
  3. If your microwave looks (and smells) less than fresh, clean it with a lemon. Simply heat ¾ cup of water and two tablespoons of lemon juice just until it almost boils, then let it sit for 10 minutes and wipe with a damp cloth.
  4. Dilute lemon juice in a spray bottle with water and use it to lightly disinfect countertops.
  5. Remove stains and bacteria from wooden cutting boards by rubbing as hard as you like with lemon juice and a scrub brush.
  6. Soak plastic food containers in lemon juice and water in order to remove built-up food odors and stains.

Locanda Positano: Savor a Meal of Organic Italian Fare

February 18, 2015 5:01 pm

Food isn't just the passion of Michelangelo Pinto and Paolo Scovolo, owners of Locanda Positano — it's their life's work. Before opening their restaurant in 2010, they made personal connections with organic farmers in California and olive oil producers in Italy, visiting them and ensuring that the products met their high standards. It's this commitment to quality that diners can expect when dining at Locanda Positano.

The dining room is cozy and the atmosphere is intimate, making this place an ideal spot for a date. Yelpers recommend beginning your meal with the burrata caprese, described as fresh, creamy, and perfectly seasoned. One of the restaurant's signature dishes is the wild boar braised with red wine, and diners also give high marks to the rigatoni with braised short ribs or the branzino. Or, opt for the three-course truffle menu. For dessert, popular options include the panna cotta, the tiramisu, and the gelato. For a final flourish to your meal, spring for a small glass of the house-made limoncello.
