Potato brushes. Everyone’s seen them and they’re in every grocery store in the continental US and Canada, right?
Sigh. So I thought too. But the lowly potato brush is nowhere to be found. No grocery store in town has them. Nor the hardware stores. Nor the drug store…yes, I did look in my quest. It makes me sad, as my best beloved, das husband, has, grumble, used mine in a way not intentioned by the manufacturers, and flattened most of the exterior bristles. (This, IRL, is where I grimace, frown and scowl.) He seems to have been in the one percent who had never seen a potato brush. I know not how I will easily scrub the potatoes that I’ve grown without one. I am wroth, cross and irritated that these once, ridiculously common brushes are no where to be found.
