Thrifty Tips for March 14, 2013
Tea is not just a wonderful beverage both hot and cold. Tea has a multitude of uses which makes it extra thrifty.
-Polish furniture with a small amount of brewed tea on a cloth. It will help clean the wood and shine it up too. It also works great on wood floors as a follow up to your regular cleaning. Use small amounts and let air dry.
-Fill a spray bottle with some brewed tea and use it to clean glass and mirrors around the home. This works really well on greasy fingerprints. How do fingerprints get so greasy anyway?
-If you fill that spray bottle with black tea, it is supposed to also work wonders on killing dust mites by lightly spraying around. Definitely check that it will not stain by testing areas.
-Used tea bags placed in a small bowl or open container can assist in removing refrigerator odors.
-Just like cucumber, cooled tea bags work wonders on swollen eyes and are calming and soothing. It is always nice to put used ones in the fridge just in case.
-Smelly feet can be relieved with a bath in tea. The tanins in the tea work wonders in taking the smell out.
-Tenderize tougher cuts of meat by letting it marinate in black tea.
-Help heal plantar warts by placing a used tea bag on the area for 20 minutes a day.
-Take the ouch out of razor burn and help healing by placing a wet tea bag on the area.
Like bacon? According to Denny's it will pretty much cure what ails ya. So why not join their Baconella promotion for a coupon for two free strips of bacon. Really how can it be wrong?
