Tea has been a coffee alternative for a long time and most enjoy it on a regular basis. But what about using it outside of a mug? It has many uses not only around the house but in the beauty world and even in the garden world. Tea isn’t just for cozy mornings anymore, check out 10 ideas for using tea in your everyday life:
- Puffy Eyes: Teabags are a great way to combat puffy eyes. Place two warm water-soaked tea bags on your eyes for 20 minutes. This will soothe puffy, tired eyes and it can be quite relaxing!
- Sunburn Fix: For a quick sunburn fix on the go apply wet tea bags to your sunburn to reduce the pain that comes with the burn.
- Foot Soak: Soak feet in warm water with a few tea bags (the stronger the better) for at least 20 minutes. This will reduce food odor and can be done on a regular basis.
- Mirror Shine: A great way to make your mirror shine is to wash it with tea bag infused water. Brew a strong pot of tea and let cool (or mix with cold water). Then use the solution to wipe down your mirrors! What I love about this method is it is a natural and chemical free way to shine your mirrors!
