I didn't know this...
 
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.

 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!

Want to avoid a hangover or a 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

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!!
