For the environmentally conscious, wastage is not ideal and this includes the use of tea bags.
Tea bags are a popular choice for consumers when purchasing tea as the rations of tea are easily manageable. The Tea Campaign endorse an option to use tea bags and savour tea consumption while not using environmentally damaging products. The Tea Campaign have an excellent selection of 'make your own' tea bags that are made from cellulose, abaca pulp and sealing fibre that guarantee true flavour filtering. If you ration your tea by investing the time (it doesn't take long) to make your own tea bags and are looking for a use for the tea or tea bag remnants, look no further. There are numerous uses for discarded tea and tea bags.
1. Treat rashes
Once cooled, tea has a soothing relief on irritated skin. Simply place a used (and cool) tea bag (preferably green tea) on the affected area or bathe the skin in a cooling tea bath.
2. Reducing dark circles under the eyes
Dark circles can heighten self-consciousness and are difficult to hide with make-up. Used tea bags that have cooled down can be placed over the eyes to reduce the swelling of the area and soothe the pores.
3. Rejuvenating hair
Take a bowl full of water, boil it and add 4 tea bags or a pot of green or Darjeeling tea. Let the water cool and then wash your hair in the solution. Your hair's texture will improve and you will notice a new shine and bounce.
Discarded tea bags or a tea brew that's cooled down can be used as a natural cleaner for even the toughest grease or furniture stains.
5. As a face cleanser
Due to its high antioxidant levels, green tea is great for facial skin rejuvenation. Allow a tea bag or a brew to steep for 5 minutes and once cooled, apply over face with a cotton pad.
6. Cleaning shoes
Tea that is rubbed in a circular motion is perfect for eliminating marks and scuffs on shoes. They will shine brighter for longer.
