After using a tea bag, you are likely to throw them away because you don’t have any further.
Following are Top 7 things that you use those used tea bags for:
#1: Rust-proof Your Cookware:
You can protect your pots, spoons and other cooking items or wares from rusting by wiping them with used damp teabags after cooking with them. Tannins in the tea will shield the wares from oxidation that causes rust.
#2: Freshen Your Fridge:
Used tea bags can also help you freshen your fridge. Place the bags in an open plate in the fridge and it will remove any foul odours in it. Before you know it, the smell oozing out of your fridge will be very clean and fresh.
#3: Stop Bleeding From Razor Cuts:
When next you bleed or you are cut by a razor blade, you should use a warm or damp tea bag to stop the bleeding. There are antioxidants in it that can check bleeding.
#4: Freshen Your Breath:
Bad breath is largely caused by bacteria and this can be very unpleasant. Prepare two teabags of strong tea, allow it to cool and use it to rinse your mouth. To get the best result, rinse your mouth with the prepared tea daily, preferably after a meal.
