Did you know that tea was originally used as a medicine? It took tea over 3,000 years to become a common beverage. However, if you drink tea daily, you will have many used tea bags. What do we do with the tea bags that are left over? Toss them? No, Don’t.
Tea bags are now 100% biodegradable, which has helped them regain popularity. Tea bags can be reused repeatedly, which is another great thing about them. The tea bags should only be reused once more to avoid making the tea too weak.
You’ll want to keep a few tea bags in your home until you are ready to use them.
You can keep moist tea bags at room temperature for up to a day. Keep them at room temperature for no more than a day to prevent bacteria and mold growth. Remember that all-natural foods, including teas, can go bad quickly, even if chilled. If in doubt, trust your instincts.
If you find that your tea bags are stale, it is best to compost them. Tea bags can also be used as eyewash. You can place the tea bags in the refrigerator for ten minutes and then apply them to your eyes. This gives you a pleasant feeling and can reduce puffiness and dark circles. You can also add some to water and let it soak your feet. This will nourish your skin and eliminate odors.
