1. Remove Berry Stains - If you've been picking berries, or cooking with them, your fingers tend to get stained. A piece of raw potato rubbed on to them will take off the stain. If the problem is really bad, dip the cut potato into lemon juice before using it. 2. Remove Salt from Soups - If you are making soups and stews and find that you have added a little too much salt, add a cut up potato and it will absorb the salt. . The salt enters the cells of the potato by osmosis. If potato is not
part of the recipe, make sure you remove it! 3. Compost for Potted Plants - Chopped and crushed potato makes good compost for plants. Chop the potato up and put it into the hole before you plant flowering plants.
I'm personally testing another use, so watch for Potatoes - Who Knew? Part !!
