Sometimes it’s all in the Approach


Here is! The post you have all been waiting for 🙂


How to scrub potatoes with one hand.


The normal way to scrub potatoes: hold the potato in your nondominant hand and the brush in the other. Then swipe the bristles back and forth over all surfaces of the potato.


One-handed method: obtain a scrub brush with a flat top. Lay the scrub brush bristles up on a nonskid pad in your sink. Take the potato and brushed it back and forth over the bristles.


Yep, sometimes it’s all in the approach. I essentially just reversed the common process. But it makes an impossible task possible.


This also works for polishing small pieces of silver. Rub the item on the polishing cloth rather than the other way around.


Simple simple simple.

    Mama did the same thing to brush her teeth except the small brush was on suction cups on the side of the sink. Where there is a will there is a way.

    Yes, I use a Scrunge – the sponge with one rough scrubbing side. Rough side up, you can scrub potato on rough side; sponge side against sink keeps sponge in place.
