Have you ever packed quickly and gone away without your makeup remover, then found yourself wearing mascara that you really need to get off? Finding a potato is a lot easier than finding a natural allergen free remover when out of town.

Try this clever tip from Wendyl in her book Recipes For A Cleaner Life about how to get your mascara off with a potato. 

There’s no excuse for smudged mascara when there’s a potato in the house. Peel it first – or you’ll get mud in your eyes – then slice thinly and wipe away. You’ll be amazed at how good this is. Wipe off excess potato juice with a tissue, rinse your face and dry.
