I heard that Young Living’s lemon essential oil removed stains, but I had never tried it – until a couple of months ago. I purchased a nice white bowl, but discovered it had some black stains on it. I tried everything, including a rotating scrubbing brush head. It helped, but the black stains were still there. In a last-ditch effort, I pulled out my lemon oil. The black stains came out. I was so impressed! I will never underestimate the power of our lemon oil again!
