11 Ingenious Ways To Re-Use Tea Bags Around The House


From relieving sunburns to shrinking warts, there are a variety of ways tea bags can be reused.

Did you know? Tea bags are good for more than just creating a hot mug of tea. In fact, there are a multitude of ways old tea bags can be reused around the house – some of them may even blow your mind!

From relieving a sunburn to shrinking warts, the adaptogens and phytochemicals in tea can make your life easier in a variety of ways. 11 ingenious uses for tea bags follow:

1) Soothe A Sunburn 

Black tea has tannic acid which is known to have astringent and soothing properties. Just pull a cool tea bag from the fridge and apply on top of a sunburn. This is a good first step to assist the healing process.

2) Rejuvenate Tired Eyes

Did you stay up too late or just haven’t been able to get proper sleep? Place used black tea bags below your puffy eyes and you’ll feel rejuvenated in no time. According to FaithTap, the tannins in black tea have a calming and soothing effect on inflamed tissue.

3) Relieve Minor Burns

Nothing feels as bad as a fresh burn. As long as it’s not hospital-serious, you can use a cool tea bag (black tea) from the fridge to soothe the inflammation in your skin.

4) Herbal Hair Rinse 

Whether you seek to control dandruff or just want your hair to shine in the sun, an herbal hair rinse can help. Massage your scalp with your favorite cup of tea that has been steeping for at least one hour, then rinse it.

Bonus: Apply a dab of coconut oil to keep your locks fresh and hydrated.


5) Shrink A Wart

Before you freeze a wart off, try this remedy. Use a tea bag containing green tea (cooled) on top of the wart and secure it in place with an ACE bandage. After 15 minutes, replace it with a fresh new tea bag containing green tea. Reputably, the wart should fall off in a few days.

6) Freshen Up Stinky Shoes 

You worked out. Great! Unfortunately, the rest of the family doesn’t think so, for your shoes reek. Luckily, a dry tea bag can fix that problem. While this solution doesn’t involve a used tea bag, it is still genius. Just stick a fresh tea bag in a stinky shoe – or two, and the odor will be absorbed in no time.

7) Grow Beautiful Roses

Did you know? The tannic acid in tea leaves lowers the pH of the soil, preventing fungus around the base of plants. One bush in particular that benefits from this treatment is the rose bush. Placing a used tea bag (or the leaves) in the soil after pruning the plant will help it grow more succulent roses.

8) De-grime Dirty Dishes

Few people like the task of washing dishes because it can be a chore to scrape off the previous evening’s leftovers. Thankfully, tea bags can help do the work for you by de-griming dishes before you wash them. Just soak dishes overnight with a few tea bags, and when you wake up, they’ll be easier to clean.

To get a sparkling clean mirror, simply brew a few tea bags and then soak a cloth in the cooled tea. The mirror will wipe clean more easily, leaving you more time to indulge in the hobbies you love.

People don’t like the smell of onions and garlic on your breath, and the odors aren’t necessarily delightful on your hands, either. To get rid of food odors on your hands, simply wash your hands with tea bags and they’ll smell better in no time!
