5 Interesting Things You Can Do With A Potato, No. 3 Will Surprise You



Potatoes are one of the most common and enjoyed vegetables in the world. Aside eating, potatoes can be used for many other things you might not have guessed was possible. Jumia Travel, the leading online travel agency, shares 5 interesting things you can do with potatoes.

Remove Rust

Potato contains oxalic acid which helps to dissolve rust. If you want to remove rust spots on something like a knife, simply insert the knife in the potato and let it sit for a while or cut the potato in half and rub the cut portion over the rusty area, then use a wire scrub on the area. It will go a long way in helping to remove the rust. To tackle larger rusted surface, sprinkle baking powder on the cut portion of a potato or dip in dish soap, and scrub the rusted area with it.

Reducing Puffy Eyes

Simply slice a potato, set aside two slices, place each slice on one eye and keep them on your eyes for about twenty minutes. Repeat this process regularly and you will eventually see a noticeable change. Potatoes can also help to remove dark circles or dark spots under the eyes as well.

Polish Silverware

Rather than purchasing a can of expensive polish, why not use the water you’ve boiled some potatoes in. All you need to do is place the silverware in this water, after the potatoes have been removed from it of course, and let the silverware soak for twenty minutes or half an hour. Remove the silverware, wipe them properly and you’ll be left with sparkling silverware.

For Skin Care

Potatoes are great for helping to remove pimples, blackheads, oily skin and other common skin conditions because they contain essential nutrients and vitamins that help to clean the skin from the pores and remove future threats. You can slice a potato, rub it over the affected area and leave it on for a minute or two before gently rinsing off and patting down with a towel. You can also make a paste out of the potato by using a blender. You apply the paste on your face for about 15 minutes and then gently wash off.

Power Source

Potatoes have been used as a power source for quite a few inventions. Potatoes have a certain amount of energy that can be harnessed. A potato actually almost acts like a battery that powers, for some time, devices attached to it through a wire. You can use a wire to attach either a bulb or digital clock to a potato, and experiment using the potato to power these devices.

Mom That Has 10 Sons Finally Gives Birth To A Girl



A lady identified as Alexis Brett who hails from England has finally given birth to a daughter after having 10 sons.

When Alexis and her husband were pregnant with their 11th child, she was expecting to hear that she was having another son. She was completely in shock when she heard she was finally having a girl.

Now that their daughter is here, they are absolutely loving it. At her arrival, her 10 other sons were ages 2-17.

Alexis thought her 10th son was her last; however, she knows for sure her daughter, Cameron, is definitely her last child.

They absolutely love their nontraditional family. While others think it is huge and crazy, they enjoy raising a large family.

Alexis shared, “I’m an only child myself and I’d never planned to have a large family, but now that I do, I love it. I always joked I wouldn’t have a clue what to do with a girl anyway but that’s all changed now, of course, and I have to admit that we’re having a lot of fun buying pink things for the first time.”

Alexis and her husband David have been married since 1998. They live in Dingwall, Ross-shire in a five-bedroom house with the entire family.

They have to go to the grocery store three times a week to have enough food to feed their family! In a given week, they would go through 16 loaves of bread, 100 packets of chips, and 50 pints of milk.

Alexis and David never meant to have a big family; however, they have absolutely no regrets. They love their somewhat crazy life just the way it is. They especially love having a little pink in a house filled with boys as well.

Cameron sure is one lucky little girl to have 10 older brothers to protect her as she grows up!

For some, one child is enough, but for this mom, she definitely enjoys the wait after 10 sons to finally get a beautiful daughter.
