Hint 1: Remove stains using potatoes...really!
Potatoes are excellent stain removers and they can safely be used in a lot of ways around the house.
Use them on your hands to remove the stains left behind by beets or berries or blot them into carpet or other fabrics to clean up stubborn spots. Add some salt for extra scrubbing power for particularly troublesome stains.

Hint 2: Clean silverware using potato water
Want to clean up your fine silver without all of the chemical scrubbing? Boil a few potatoes in water until they're soft and ready to eat. Set the potatoes aside (for dinner, perhaps?) and place the silverware in the potato water.
Allow it to sit for at least an hour. Remove the silver
and wipe dry to remove the tarnish.
