There are thousands of uses for tea filters. If you drink tea often, don’t throw the tea filter in the bin immediately, as there are so many benefits and uses for it.
If you’ve had a bad night’s sleep or wake up frequently and you’ve got oedema under your eyes from lack of sleep, all you need to do is put a tea filter with caffeine in it in the freezer and place it under your eyes. The tea bags help to reduce the puffiness under the eyes and eliminate dark circles.
Sometimes you may get an itchy and painful rash on your skin. A black tea filter can also help. When applied to the skin, the inflammation and itching will soon disappear. This method can also be very helpful for those who suffer from some skin diseases.
Black tea filter can also be used to treat minor injuries very effectively. For example, in case of bruises and scratches, just cool a tea bag to room temperature and place it on the painful skin area.
A tea bag can also work very well if you have been bitten by an insect, as it reduces redness, reduces swelling and soothes itching.
If you have a toothache, a peppermint tea filter can help. Just put it on the sore tooth and the problem will soon disappear, as peppermint also has some anaesthetic, numbing effects. As it promotes blood clotting, a peppermint tea bag can also be useful after tooth extraction.
If you have oily, blackhead-prone skin, you can also try a tea bag. In this case, a green tea filter can be your mainstay. Scoop the contents out of a used tea bag, gently massage some into your skin, leave for 5-6 minutes and then wash off thoroughly.
Not only we, but also our plants can benefit from the positive effects of the tea bag, which provides them with valuable nutrients when mixed into the soil of our potted plants. Just such an effect can be achieved by regularly adding tea bags to compost, which is then turned into the garden soil.
