The acidity in lemon makes them great cleaners, and also works on your hands. Hand sanitizers can be harsh on the skin and dry out your hands easily. Lemons are natural, and can thus spare you the chemically smell and taste that can ruin a good meal you just cleaned your hands for.

While you’ll still want to avoid cuts or cracked skin when applying lemon juice to your hands, the alternative will leave you feeling even fresher.
