Tips from the kitchen of an Indian homemaker

Today’s Tips

1. Sometimes, scratches on furniture become very tough to repair for us. Rub mayonnaise into scratches on furniture with your finger, let it stand, and remove with a soft cloth. For a deep scratch, break a walnut or pecan meat in half, and rub the scratch with the broken side of the nut.

2. Potatoes are one of nature's best remedies for naturally getting rid of dark circles under our eyes. Catecholase; a chemical, is found abundantly in potatoes and is commonly used in cosmetics to lighten skin. To remove dark circles under your eyes, wrap a grated raw potato in cheesecloth and apply to eyelids for 15-20 minutes. Remove the packets and rinse your face with clean water to remove any starchy liquid residue that may have leaked out from the cheese cloths.

* If dark circles under your eyes are persistent, talk to your doctor to find possible causes and treatments to get rid of them.
