Can you substitute lemon juice for lemon extract?

Yes, but remember that lemon extract is a concentrate so is much stronger in taste. You will need to use a bit more lemon juice for a lesser amount of extract.
If you feel you must add to this answer, please add to the bottom.

Since lemon extract is much stronger, I would use 1/2 again as much of the lemon juice. However, if your recipe calls for water or milk in the mixture, cut that back by a tablespoon or two because you are adding in a little more liquid with the lemon juice than the recipe calls for.
I'd only use real lemon juice or Real Lemon in the green bottle, if you are using it to make a substitute buttermilk, you can use vinegar.

Grated rind is betterLemon extract is so much stronger than juice that it will be almost impossible to get a similar flavor. I would try substituting lemon juice for ALL the liquid - water or milk - but you still may not get the same lemony flavor. A better bet would be to use the grated rind of 1 or 2 lemons. Beware AcidityLemon extract does not contain acid. If the recipe that calls for extract has something in it that would react with acid (ie. baking soda) juice would not be a suitable substitute.
you can take lemon juice concentrate and and boil it down some with a bit of sugar and you get anice substitute for extract.
Correct Answer

Lemon extract is made from lemon oil and alcohol. Lemon oil comes from the lemon zest (the yellow part of the peel). Therefore lemon zest would be the substitute for the lemon extract. Do not use lemon juice, it will make the dish lemony but very tart. More juicewell i perfer lemon juice. But yes you can use lemon extract but if you use;use half of what they call for for lemon juice. And that's b/c lemon extract is very strong..

The person that said to use the lemon zest gave the correct answer.

Is it okay to put lemon juice on a burn?

No, it is not a good idea to put lemon juice on a burn. While the cooling effect might feel good momentrily, the skin at the burn site is already damaged, and the last thing you need is an acid on it.

Treatment for burns is an extensive topic covered under other questions on this site. However, for minor burns, avoid administering any creme, gel, goo, etc. Wrap the wound in a clean, dry bandage and leave it be (applies to first degree and minor second degree burns). When a blister forms, leave it be until it pops on its own. Then carefully treat as an open wound.

Does mayonnaise with lime juice need refrigeration?

Yes, the egg in mayonnaise will go bad. Regular Mayo needs to be in the fridge so one can with reasonable certainty guess that even with the addition of lime juice it should be in the fridge.

However, the addition of the lime juice may affect the storage life. The lower pH may allow it to stay good for a little longer. Acidic foods are less likely to grow really harmful things (which is why people rarely get botulism from sauerkraut). Or conversely, the stray lime pulp and any bacteria/fungi picked up while squeezing the lime (like if you touch the inside of it or let the juice drip over your fingers) might help the mayonnaise to go bad sooner.
