Cucumbers..timun tau bukan cucu member

WOW WHAT A LITTLE GEM THE CUCUMBER IS,
I WILL LOOK AT IT DIFFERENTLY NOW. 

1. Cucumbers contain most of the vitamins you need every day, just one 
cucumber contains Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B5, 
Vitamin B6, Folic Acid, Vitamin C, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium and Zinc.

2. Feeling tired in the afternoon, put down the caffeinated soda and pick up a cucumber. Cucumbers are a good source of B Vitamins and Carbohydrates 

that can provide that quick pick-me-up that can last for hours.

3. Tired of your bathroom mirror fogging up after a shower? Try rubbing a 

cucumber slice along the mirror, it will eliminate the fog and provide a 
soothing, spa-like fragrance.

4. Are grubs and slugs ruining your planting beds? Place a few slices in a 

small pie tin and your garden will be free of pests all season long. The 
chemicals in the cucumber react with the aluminum to give off a scent 
undetectable to humans but drive garden pests crazy and make them flee the 
area.

5. Looking for a fast and easy way to remove cellulite before going out or to 

the pool? Try rubbing a slice or two of cucumbers along your problem area for
a few minutes, the phytochemicals in the cucumber cause the collagen in 
your skin to tighten, firming up the outer layer and reducing the visibility of
cellulite. Works great on wrinkles too!!!

6. Want to avoid a hangover or terrible headache? Eat a few cucumber slices 

before going to bed and wake up refreshed and headache free. Cucumbers 
contain enough sugar, B vitamins and electrolytes to replenish essential 
nutrients the body lost, keeping everything in equilibrium, avoiding both a 
hangover and headache!!

7. Looking to fight off that afternoon or evening snacking binge? Cucumbers 

have been used for centuries and often used by European trappers, traders and explores for quick meals to thwart off starvation.

8. Have an important meeting or job interview and you realize that you don't 

have enough time to polish your shoes? Rub a freshly cut cucumber over the 
shoe. Its chemicals will provide a quick and durable shine that not only looks 
great but also repels water.

9. Out of WD 40 and need to fix a squeaky hinge? Take a cucumber slice and

rub it along the problematic hinge and voila, the squeak is gone!

10. Stressed out and don't have time for massage, facial or visit to the spa? 

Cut up an entire cucumber and place it in a boiling pot of water, the 
chemicals and nutrients from the cucumber with react with the boiling water
and be released in the steam, creating a soothing, relaxing aroma that has 
been shown the reduce stress in new mothers and college students during 
final exams.

11. Just finish a business lunch and realize you don't have gum or mints? 

Take a slice of cucumber and press it to the roof of your mouth with your 
tongue for 30 seconds to eliminate bad breath. The phytochemcials will kill 
the bacteria in your mouth responsible for causing bad breath.

12. Looking for a 'green' way to clean your faucets, sinks or stainless steel? 

Take a slice of cucumber and rub it on the surface you want to clean, not only
will it remove years of tarnish and bring back the shine, but is won't leave 
streaks and won't harm your fingers or fingernails while you clean.

13. Using a pen and made a mistake? Take the outside of the cucumber and 

slowly use it to erase the pen writing, also works great on crayons and markers
that the kids have used to decorate the walls!!


Pass this along to everybody you know who is looking for better and safer 
ways to solve life's everyday problems..
