Tip o’ the Week

*Tips that are NEAT-tO know!*

Never store your potatoes with your onions. The alliinases will rot the potatoes faster.
(Alliinases will be in my “Tip o’ the Week” next week!)

Slice a potato in disks and put one or two in each houseplant plagued with gnats. Every 2 days, throw away potato slices and replace with new ones. Do this for about a week and you will rid your pretty little plants and house of those pesky gnats.
(This works because they will lay their eggs [hundreds] on the potato. They will find a better spot to raise their little ones.)

Throw large chunks of potato in a soup that’s over salted. They work like a sponge. Remove potato before it’s soft.
