Potatoes aren’t just tasty

Cooked, baked, fries, wedges, you name it: the possibilities are endless when it comes to potatoes. Just one of the reasons we love them so much. But potatoes aren’t just tasty, they’re also quite useful when cleaning.

1. Glasses

If you wear glasses, you know how annoying it is when they fog up. Especially when wearing a face mask, this is often the case. Thankfully it’s easy to avoid. Rub a raw potato on the inside of your lenses. The starch in the potatoes keeps your glasses from fogging up.

2. Rust

Getting rid of rust is no easy task. Thankfully you can clean rusty knives and scissors with potatoes in no time. Cut the potato in half and put a bit of dish soap and baking soda on top. Rub it on the rust until it’s completely gone. Rinse well with water and let it dry.
