Do you need to get your crayon art off the bedroom wall before Dad gets home? Have you scratched a splotchy mistake with a pen on your brother’s birthday card? Never fear. Cukes can save the day. That’s right… cucumbers are just full of surprises!
Take an unpeeled cucumber and gently use the skin to erase the pen writing. It may take a while, but your cuke can get the waxy purple lady off your wall for you, too.
Adults may be interested in many other useful things people can do with cucumbers. Seems they’re good for cleaning bathrooms, oiling doors and sweetening your breath.
And, yes, cukes are good for you! Put down that can of cola full of sugar and caffeine, and eat a cucumber. They’ve got B vitamins and carbs that can that can keep you going for hours, with just a few calories.
And if that isn’t enough, Richard Folkard in Plant Lore says if you dream about cukes, it means you will speedily fall in love. Or, if you are in love, then you will marry the one you love. Plant Lore was printed in 1884, so it must be true 🙂
