A pair of exfoliating bath and shower gloves works very well for cleaning garden fresh root vegetables.

I like this tip a lot! I've always used a kitchen brush that I keep aside just for veggies ... but I want to definitely try the gloves!

I think you all will love using the gloves!

I really like how easy the gloves make cleaning potatoes, root vegetables and I use it all the time, even for apples, oranges and all fruits and veggies that I buy at the store too!

Cindi, I think you can find them pretty easy, such as your local drug store or department store. I was at WalMart the other day and saw some just like mine!
