Cute Lemon Ice Cubes {and a clean microwave and garburator!}

Hey guys! I am still working on going through the pictures of my friend’s baby shower, but I wanted to do a quick posting on this cute ice cube idea that I found on Industrious Justice.

Slice up some lemons and place them in a clean cupcake tin.  Add some water and pop them in the freezer.

Now, move on to those left over lemon ends! {and I used 2 more as well}.  Find a microwave safe bowl, squeeze out the lemon juice and add about a cup of water.  I threw the lemon rinds in there as well.  Place in your microwave on high for 5-10 minutes. Once it is done, all it takes is a quick swipe of your microwave to remove all of that baked on grime.

Now dump the lemon rinds and juice into your garburator, run some hot water and turn it on.  You are left with a clean microwave, a clean garburator, a lemon smelling kitchen, and {eventually} some cute ice cubes!

For those of you that are wondering, they came out of the tin really easily.
Have a great week!  Hope to see you tomorrow for another Creative Spark!
