Why do we keep Lemon under the tyre?



Everyone would keep lemon under tyres when they buy new vehicles, but how many of us know the science behind this procedure? They tell to ward off the bad omens, but let me tell you the true science behind it.

During those times there were tongas and bullock carts were carrying us to long distances. In this journey the horses or bulls would go through different terrain of lands like dry, wet, marshy lands etc and their foot would get infected. Therefore they were made to stamp lemons before starting the journey. Because lemons had citric acid which has broad spectrum antibacter­ial properties. This Indian thought of that time is still being researched by the western science.

By this we should know that our ancestors were far more advanced than western civilizati­on and also made us knew about the exact meaning of this procedure.
