Cucumber Fun Facts by Caleb Price

  • The term “cool as a cucumber” is actually derived from the cucumber’s ability to cool the temperature of the blood.
  • Cucumbers contain Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, Folic Acid, Vitamin C, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium and Zinc.
  • Do you have a problem with your bathroom mirror fogging up after your morning shower? Try rubbing a cucumber slice along the mirror. It will eliminate the fog and provide a soothing, spa-like fragrance.
  • Using a pen and made a mistake? Move over, Mr. Clean Magic Eraser! Take the outside waxy coating of the cucumber and slowly use it to erase the pen writing.
  • Do you have a hard time drinking your eight glasses of water per day? Try munching on some cucumbers. They are made up of 95% water!
