    potato peelings to clean chimney??? 12th Dec 10 at 8:24 PM
    Hi all,
    I know i know, long time no post

    One of the girls told me tonight that I can put my potato peelings on the fire and it will clean the chimney, apparently her mother used to do it (like 40 years ago...)
    has anyone else heard of this or is it an old wives tale lol?

    I don't compost them as i was told not to, so would love to find a use for them as we have MASSES daily!


    P.S. I promise i did 2 seperate searches, however Im sure the amazing BGs will find my answer in an experienced search! All I found was 2 links about making crisps with them!
    I will pay jexygirl the compliment of saying that she invariably writes a lot of sense!
