Make sure to have good lemons

First, you need to get the right lemons. Peel must not be impregnated with various chemical substances. Then you need to wash them thoroughly to remove any impurities or dirt. Cut the lemons in half and squeeze the juice into a glass and pour water in. The water should be lukewarm, because warm water will release nutrients easier.
