When squeezing lemons, don’t make the mistake of throwing away the seeds: they are worth their weight in gold used like this

Here are some ways to make the most of them.

After using the lemon, save the seeds and rinse them carefully with water at room temperature, using a strainer. Then, spread them out on a paper towel and dry them completely. Next, take some tweezers and remove the film covering them.

Take a small container, like a yogurt cup, and fill it with damp cotton wool. Place the seed on top of the cotton wool and let it sit for at least a week. After about 7 days, the seed will give way to a small sprout.

Continue to keep the cotton wool moist and create a humid environment to further encourage the growth of your little sprout until it develops roots. At this point, transplant the seed into a small pot, using a mixture of potting soil and perlite to ensure good drainage of the soil. The sprout will require constant care, such as a well-lit location, heat and protection from drafts. Make sure the soil remains constantly moist and wait for nature to take its course, eventually getting a lemon seedling that will give you delicious fruit.

Additionally, lemon seeds can be used to create a drawer and cabinet freshener. After washing, citrus seeds retain their natural scent for a long time. You can place them in a canvas bag and use them to scent drawers, closets, or even rooms like the bathroom.
