Use POTATO instead of expensive cleaning products to clean these 5 things

Potatoes are among the most versatile vegetables to enjoy. You can cook, fry, bake, or boil them as a tasty hot dish or a summer salad. The options are limitless, so there is no doubt that 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! Here is 5 things that you should use potatoes to clean.

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

Have you ever noticed that rust on metal surfaces is difficult to remove? This post is for all the people looking for a cheap and effective way to clean rust.
The best cleaning method I have found so far is using a potato.
Here’s how it works:
1) Slice the potatoes in half, lengthwise
2) Rub them over the area with rust
3) Put some salt on top of your potatoes before rubbing them against your surface.

3. Remove odour from shoes

You may have heard the old wives tale of putting an apple in your shoe to remove odour, but is that true? Not. Apples are effective because they release a gas called ethyl mercaptan, which has a powerful scent and can cover up any other smells. Potatoes are rich in sulfur, so you’ll likely see some changes overnight with this technique as well.

4. Clean your oven

The best way to clean your oven is using potatoes.
Potatoes are an excellent way to get the grime off of your oven’s surfaces without having to use any chemicals or harsh products. Cut a potato in half, place it on a kitchen towel, and then rub it against the tough spots until you see them coming up with ease!

5. Small stains

Another clever way to get rid of small clothing stains is to rub the peeled part of a raw potato on a greasy stain. The starch interacts with the grease and removes it. It might take a few attempts, depending on the severity of the stain and the material, but with a bit of effort, you’ll be successful!
