Calamansi/Calamondin is also known for other benefits:
  • Reduces/eliminates stinky fish smell. 
  • Serves as a bleaching agent for dark underarms.
  • Eliminates body odors.
  • Serves as seasoning to some dishes.
  • Reduces dandruff.
  • Relieves colds and cough.

How about you? What are your home remedies?
