Lemon juice douche

Hi everyone. I have lurked here for a while and have read many posts where women talk of the lemon juice douche. What I am planning to do is mix one part lemon juice with one part water and insert using an infant's medicine dropper. My question is how to you get the juice? Do you actually have to squeeze a lemon or can you buy lemon juice at the store? If you do use fresh squeezed lemon do you have to strain it first? Sorry to have so many questions, just want to make sure I understand it correctly. Thanks in advance,

HI Cheryl~

A couple months ago I used lemon juice squeezed from a fresh lemon for my attempt and for a few days afterward there was pulp and seeds coming out (TMI). I'd say buy the lemon ball at the market so there's no pulp or seeds. Good luck.

I actually cheated and used lemon juice concentrate. (had I had an actual lemon in the house, DS#1 would have it devoured in seconds!) The container I had said that 3TBS of the concentrate = the juice of 1 lemon, so I mixed that w/slightly less H2O (I wanted to make sure things were acidic enough) and used a medicine dropper. If you use the actual lemon, I would make sure it's at least seed-free. GL!!!
