Potato

water

can also

help

the

hair

: It should be applied as a cure after the potatoes have been boiled and washed out thoroughly later.

This makes the hair stronger and more intense in color.

The water should even help against gray hair.

Potato water is ideal for hearty dishes: Consumers must observe a note

It doesn't have to be drunk straight away, but

consumers

can

also

use

potato

water

in the

kitchen

.

The

liquid

can be

stirred

into

soups

and

sauces

, not only are the minerals it contains are optimal, the brew also intensifies the taste of hearty dishes.

bread also

gets

a special touch

from

potato

water.

Please note: If the

potato water is

to be used after cooking, it is important that the

potatoes

do not have any green spots.

This contains the poisonous substance

solanine

, because it is not destroyed when heated and passes into the

water

.

With mild poisoning, symptoms such as

diarrhea

,

nausea

,

vomiting

and

headache,

as well as sore throat occur.

If a person ingests large amounts of solanine, the consequences are serious.

Poisonous solanine is also produced in sprouting potatoes.

And of course, the

potatoes

should be

thoroughly cleaned of soil and dirt before cooking, if the potato water is used for food afterwards.
