We can all agree that no day is complete without a hot cup of tea.
Despite the daytime, tea plays an important role in many people’s lives. According tea experts, tea can be a powerful remedy for things such as headache, stress, and ironically the heat.
If you drink tea regularly, you probably go through a lot of tea bags! Wouldn’t it be nice if there was something useful you could do with all those tea bags, rather than just throwing them out? Well, the good news is that there are actually plenty of ways to put all those tea bags to good use! And today I’ll be sharing 13 of the most surprising and useful things you can do with used tea bags.
So, after that cup of tea, do you then dispose of that teabag?
If you answered yes, then I suggest you keep your next one.
According to One Good Thing magazine, there are innovative ways one can reuse their teabags.
Let’s take a look at a few:
1. Refresh Your Carpets
You can use the leaves from a teabag to freshen up your carpets. Just allow a tea bag to dry out, then remove the leaves. Stir the leaves into a big handful of baking soda, then sprinkle the mixture over dingy or smelly spots on your carpet. Let it sit for about 20 minutes, then vacuum the area thoroughly.
2. Take A Relaxing Bath
Place one or two bags of tea in your bath water next time you take a soak. The antioxidants in the tea leaves will leave your skin feeling soft and hydrated.
3. Reduce Under-Eye Circles
Place them in your fridge to cool, then hold the bags against your eyes for a few minutes. It feels lovely, and the caffeine content will work its magic to shrink the blood vessels around your eyes.
4. Soothe A Sunburn
We all try our best to avoid sunburns, but sometimes they just happen! Tea can help you soothe sunburned skin and help reduce inflammation. Check out the link below to get all the details about using tea to soothe sunburns!
5. Absorb Unpleasant Odors
Tea leaves can help absorb odors without leaving behind any overpowering scents. Place a dry, used tea bag in a drawer, closet, fridge, or even your shoes to leave them smelling fresher.
6. Restore Shine To Your Hair
You can use tea to make your hair shiny and smooth! Use a couple of used tea bags to brew a strong tea, then allow the tea to cool completely. Before a shower, pour the tea into your hair until it’s completely saturated. Allow the tea to sit for about 10 minutes, then hop in the shower. Shampoo and condition your hair as normal. Your hair will thank you the tea treatment!
