After the molds have set up and the excess moisture has dried, I put them in a large airtight jar and use them whenever they are needed.
    That sounds interesting...Can't wait to see your photos and read about the process!

    I recently saw a television report on reconstituted lemon juice. It concluded that most shoppers do no know what they are getting. Their independent testing showed some bottles contained less than 5% lemon juice, and others contained up to 25%. I love the smell of lemon in my dishwasher, but I want to make sure that I am using lemon juice not colored water. For that reason, my plan is to continue using lemons from my own trees and use white vinegar when those are not available.

    If the lemon juice isn't at a high enough concentration, it will not work as a rinse agent, so don't waste your money. You may want to try a brand name lemon juice, at least then you might have a complaint contact number.

    I'll keep you updated when I have more information - JRodgers
