    • Hi Nancy! Thanks for following my blog!! I’m thinking of happy memories of our days at the YMCA – good times!! The ratio that I’ve found to be helpful is the juice of 1 lemon mixed with about 12 ounces of lukewarm water. That ratio isn’t set in stone and you can definitely modify it to suit your tastes. Have you tried it? If so, what ratio have you found works for you?
