Ever go through your pantry and find a bag of sprouted potatoes? While they are perfectly fine to eat in that state, they may not be very tasty. If you’d rather not eat them, cut them up instead and use them to remove rust from things like cast-iron pans, hinges and other metal objects affected by rust. How does it work? The acids in potatoes break down the rust, and the skins act as an abrasive. Scrub away and reveal the gleaming metal underneath!
