Many all-natural household cleaners, such as kitchen and bathroom sprays, contain a small percentage of citric acid to help clean hard water stains and kitchen messes. The citrusy smell of the acid is pleasant, so it works well as both a cleaner and a deodorizer. A common household use of lemon juice is to use it to clean hard water and mineral deposits from shower doors, sinks and toilets.
