12 Weirdly Practical Uses for Potatoes

Sick of using potatoes as side dishes for your dinner meal? Left in their uncooked form, raw potatoes have a variety of weirdly practical uses, from aiding you in removing a broken light bulb from its fixture to keeping your ski goggles clear in the cold weather. A raw potato can also help with your floral arrangement, add new life to your beat-up shoes, and absorb the excess salt from your overly salted soup and stews.

Though potatoes are hardly pretty to look at, potatoes make for a great ingredient for your daily beauty regimen. Raw potato slices are great to use as facials, DIY eye masks, and for removing warts.
