5 Ways to Reuse Old Tea Bags

No one can argue that a hot cup of tea soothes the soul! But after a cup of happiness, you usually just throw away the teabags when they could be reused for other cost-effective purposes.

Here are some of the many uses for your used teabags:

  1. Brewing old tea bags in a bucket of water and using the weak tea concoction to water your plants can help to protect them from harmful fungal infections. The actual tea leaves can also act as a soil fertilizer and prevent nasty pests.
  1. Old tea bags are perfect for disguising odours around the house. For example, placing teabags at the bottom of the bin or placing them in the fridge can cover up stenches and leave them smelling fresh.
  1. Old teabags can help clean dirty dishes! Soaking your greasy dishes in weak tea water brewed from old teabags can help degrease them and loosen hardened pieces of food.
  1. Cooled used teabags can also be used to reduce inflammation and soothe irritated skin by rubbing the tea bag over the afflicted area. Effective for puffy eyes, bruises and even sunburn.
  1. DIY sugar scrub! Mix together the contents of a used teabag, add in two tablespoons of sugar and a tablespoon of cooking oil. Rub it on your hands and feet for 5 – 10 minutes before washing it off with warm water.

There you have it- double the happiness for half the price!
