Relieve Minor Burns With A Potato

Accidentally burn yourself while cooking? If you have a potato handy, how-to illustrator Yumi Sakugawa points out that they’re great for minor burn relief.

How? You dice up a small part of the potato and combine it with tap water to make a paste, then spread that paste over the burn. Leave it there for a few minutes for a soothing effect. Useful if it’s just a minor burn. If you have a bad burn, however, go see a doctor!
