5 Things you can clean with potatoes


Potatoes are more than just a gastronomy delight

Potatoes are one of the most versatile vegetables to enjoy. You can cook, bake, fry, or boil them as a tasty hot dish or a summer salad.  The options are limitless, which is why they are such a popular item in every kitchen.  However, unbelievable as it may sound, potatoes aren’t used for cuisine alone. They offer practical uses when it comes to cleaning!


1. Glasses

Everyone who wears glasses will agree how bothersome it can be when your spectacles fog up, particularly when having to wear a face mask. But guess what? If you rub a raw potato on the inside of the glass lens, the starch will prevent your spectacles from clouding up.

2. Rust

Rust can be a real nuisance that can damage utensils permanently. Potatoes are a great solution for rust. Instead of throwing away knives or scissors that have succumbed to rust, take half a potato, and add some dishwashing liquid with baking soda to the potato’s surface and rub it on the item until the rust disappears. Then just rinse off your utensils and they will look good as new.
