Clean your house
Used tea bags can be very useful when it comes to cleaning your home. Tea can clean dirty mirrors, floors and even linoleum!
In order to prevent the meat from getting hard and resilient, used tea bags can be used to marinate it. The aroma from the tea will improve the meat’s taste and it will make it tender.
If you have some open wounds in your mouth, you can bite on an already used tea bag and the tea’s compounds will relieve the pain.
Get rid of the redness in your eyes.
Put a couple of tea bags in cold water and let them soak for a couple of minutes. Place them on your eyelids. Let them stay like that for a few minutes. Remove them after a few minutes and the redness will be gone.
Feed your garden
Sprinkle new or used tea leaves (loose or in tea bags) around your rosebushes and cover with mulch to give them a midsummer boost. When you water the plants, the nutrients from the tea will be released into the soil, spurring growth. Roses love the tannic acid that occurs naturally in tea.
