Ten Things to do with an Idaho Potato
  1. Light bulb break in the socket? Turn off the breaker. Cut a potato so that it fits into the socket, press it in hard, turn to the left, and the bottom part of your bulb should come out easily.
  2. Feeling stressed? Eating potatoes can actually calm you. Potatoes and other carbohydrate-rich foods raise levels of serotonin, a chemical in the brain that regulates mood.
  3. Apply slices of raw, cold potatoes to your eyelids to reduce puffiness.
  4. Anti-fog your sunglasses or ski goggles by rubbing a raw potato over the lenses before you go outside.
  5. Added too much salt to your dish? Just add a slice of raw potato to soak up some of the salt.
  6. Remove tarnish from stored silverware by soaking in potato water.
  7. Rub your hands with a peeled potato to get rid of hard-to-remove stains from foods like carrots.
  8. Have geraniums? Carve a small hole in a potato, slip a geranium stem into the hole and plant the whole thing, potato and all. The potato will provide the plant with the extra nutrients it needs to flourish.
  9. The next time you need a hot compress, boil a potato, wrap it in a towel, and apply to the area. Refrigerate a boiled potato for a cold compress.
  10. Make a stencil. Cut a potato in half, carve a design into it, dip it in paint and stencil away.
