There is no doubt that tea contains a lot of antioxidants which are key to undoing any damage that may have been inflicted on the cells. Any damage to these cells can eventually result in deadlier illnesses as well as wrinkles. It seems like the teabags you temporarily put in your teacup and throw away afterwards can be of real benefit. Here are ten important uses of teabags you may well have been unaware of.
1. Insect bites
It is no surprise that any bites by insects can causing itching. Luckily, teabags can be applied on the itchy surface in order to mitigate the urge to itch.
After the teabags have been submerged, allow the to cool down before placing them on any sunburns you may have. This would gradually deliver the much needed relief.
3. Minor bruises
All you have to do is place soaked teabags on any minor bruises you may have. This can speed up the process of healing.
4. Sore gums
If you have a used and cooled teabag, place it on your sore gums in order to relieve the tissues that are swollen. This almost instantly stops any bleeding and constricts blood vessels.
Take a warm, soaked teabag and place it on both eyes for nearly twenty minutes.
If you need to shrink warts on your skin, place a soaked teabag on a wart for about ten minutes twice a day.
7. Dark circles
Place a soaked teabag under the eyes for nearly twenty minutes in order to free yourself of those annoying, dark circles.
8. Refrigerator odor
Put a used teabag in the refrigerator to allow it to soak up all the foul smell building up in the refrigerator.
9. Grease cleansing
Teabags can be used to clean any dirty pots, mirrors and pans.
10. Unclean hair
Rinse the hair with a cup full of tea. This can contribute to the shine of the hair. Plus, it makes them a lot more manageable. Be aware that this works particularly well for dark hair.
