Potatoes Used To Cleanse

(Vaughan’s Vegetable Cook Book)

Small pieces of raw potato in a little water shaken vigorously inside

bottles and lamp chimneys will clean them admirably. To clean a burned

porcelain kettle boil peeled potatoes in it. Cold boiled potatoes not

over-boiled, used as soap will clean the hands and keep them soft and

healthy. To cleanse and stiffen silk, woolen and cotton fabrics use the

following recipe:--Grate two good sized potatoes into a pint of clear,

clean, soft water. Strain through a coarse sieve into a gallon of water

and let the liquid settle. Pour the starchy fluid from the sediment, rub

the articles gently in the liquid, rinse them thoroughly in clear water

and then dry and press. Water in which potatoes are boiled is said to be

very effective in keeping silver bright.
