Although tea bags are bought to consume, there are different uses for them that could change how you live your daily life. They will not only be used to brew your morning, noon and evening cup of tea but they can also be used for cleaning. Don’t throw your tea bags after infusing them, save them for all the household uses we’ve listed below.
1. In the car
Place dry tea bags in your car in various places; in the glove compartment, under the passenger seat or behind the back seat headrests. You can even use different flavours. Tea bags emit a nice-smelling odour that maks moisture, mould and other bad smells in the car. They are much more effective than the car air fresheners found in stores because they can last up to 7 months.
2. To clean your home
Infuse a few tea bags in boiling water to get a natural cleaning product that smells good. You can clean your mirrors and windows all while degreasing your kitchen.
3. For your eyes
Put some tea bags in cold water for 2 minutes and place them on your closed eyes for a few minutes. You will eliminate redness and tiredness around your eyes. Also, your eyes will depuff and your wrinkles will disappear.
4. Air freshener
They are perfect for the car, for the house, in your stinky shoes, in your closet. You can add some wherever you like.
5. For you blemishes
Use cold green tea bags to clean your face. They are great face cleansers and are very delicate for your skin. This way, even people with sensitive skin can use them.
6. For your sunburns
Place some cold tea bags on the parts of your body that are burned by the sun or on small lesions. The tea will automatically alleviate the pain. It also works for irritated skin, eczema and insect bites.
7. For your chapped lips
Soak the tea bags in hot water. Then, stick them against your lips and scrub for 5 minutes.
