Teabags can be very helpful for us. Whether they are used or unused they have many uses other than for brewing tea. Here are some tea bag health tips that will help you out around your home and save you some money.
-For skin irritations
After you enjoy your cup of tea save the bag and let it cool down, or you can run it under cold water, and apply it directly to any skin irritation that you may have, including bruises, sunburns, or mosquito bites. This will soothe the affected area, reduce inflammation and promote healing.
-Slow down the symptoms of aging
Similarly, you can also place a cool, used tea bag under your eyes to help get rid of dark circles, wrinkles, and any puffiness. You can make this a regular habit of drinking your morning cup of tea and it should help you look younger.
-Prevent shoe odor
Smelly feet are our biggest nightmare, especially in the summer. But a tea bag can be very beneficial. Put it in your shoes and let it stand overnight. The next day your shoes will be like new.
This can be applied in your car or in your bag for working out. Whenever you want to reduce the bad smell, feel free to put a used tea bag.
-Prevent fridge odor
Place several used tea bags in an open container in the fridge until the bad odor is gone. Tea bags have the power to absorb any odors.
Some dishes require more rubbing than others. However, if you use tea bags, this won’t be the case. When you wash dirty dishes with tea bags you won’t only save up a lot of time and effort, but your dishes will be squeaky clean.
-Bug and rodent repellent
You can use tea bags as a natural repellent against any bugs and rodents in your house. Just place a few tea bags in your cupboards and pantries. Peppermint tea works especially well because most bugs and mice don’t like the smell.
So, besides enjoying the health benefits of drinking a cup of tea, you can also use your tea bags in these six awesome ways.
