Posted by Bold Commerce Collaborator on

喝完茶,茶包就一定要扔掉了吗?NO!其实茶包经过冲泡后还有许多创意妙用,巧用这“5妙用”让你升格生活智慧王!

生活小妙招!快来看看如何再利用喝过的茶包!

1)黑眼圈和眼袋救星 

茶叶成分中的咖啡因和单宁酸能抑制肿胀。要缓解因熬夜、水肿等原因引起的黑眼圈和眼袋,可以将冷却或冷藏后的干净茶包敷在眼部位置约10分钟,敷完后将眼部清洗干净。

 

 

 

2)天然漱口水 

将喝过的绿茶茶包重新用热水浸泡,待冷却至室温,即可用来漱口。这样的天然漱口水对口腔刺激性较轻,可以用来取代有健康风险的含酒精漱口液。

 

 

3)泡澡 

泡澡时在浴缸中加入一些茶包,茶叶的清香能让你的身心更加放松,茶叶内含的抗氧化物质也对皮肤有益。劳累了一天过后,泡个香香的澡犒劳自己吧!

 

 

 

4)去除异味 

处理气味较重的食材如葱蒜、海鲜后,即使用肥皂清洗,还是会残留着一些味道。这时可以剪开喝过的茶包,用里面的茶叶来搓洗双手,能去除异味。

同样的,也可以将晾干后的旧茶包置入冰箱,减除冰箱里的异味。

 

 

5)天然护发素 

茶叶中的抗氧化物质对头发和头皮健康有益。将喝过的茶包再冲泡一次,待冷却至室温。洗头时,在用完洗发液后,用茶水将头发冲洗一次,适当按摩头皮,再用清水把头发洗干净,就能拥有更柔顺的秀发!

 

 

*需要注意的是,因为冲泡过的茶包放久了会滋生霉菌,所以最好尽快再利用。如果不能马上使用,可以将茶包浸在一杯水里先放进冰箱里。

Do you know that you can reuse your steeped tea bags in many ways, instead of just chucking them into the bin?

5 Tips on Repurposing Your Tea Bags

1)Remedy for dark circles & puffy eyes

The caffeine and tannins in tea can help relieve swelling and inflammation. To reduce puffiness and dark circles, apply cooled down or chilled tea bags to your eyes, leave for 10 minutes, remove and wash your face.

 

 

 

 

2)An organic mouthwash

The antibacterial properties in tea can help in keeping your mouth fresh and clean. Soak used green tea bags in water, then rinse your mouth and gargle with it. It’s a good idea to substitute alcohol-based mouthwash (that have a chance of actually worsen oral condition) with this organic mouthwash.

 

 

 

3) Take a relaxing bath

Add a few tea bags into the bathtub as you bath and let the natural fragrance relax your body and mind. The antioxidants in tea can also help improve skin health!

 

 

 

4)Get rid of unpleasant odours

Are your hands still smelling like garlic or fish after cooking? Try rubbing your hands with wet tea leaves from the used tea bags to remove unpleasant odours.

 

You can also place dried used tea bags in your fridge to absorb fridge odours.

 

 

 

5)Make your hair shine

The antioxidants in teas can improve hair and scalp health. Brew a weak tea with used tea bags and leave it to cool down. After shampooing your hair, use the weak tea as a hair rinse, then rinse again with clean water.

 

 

 

*Keep in mind that you should reuse your tea bags ASAP, especially if you’re going to use it on your body. If you’re not reusing right away, immerse them in a cup of water and chill it in the refrigerator. Used tea bags become a breeding ground for mold and bacteria, so don’t wait for too long to reuse them!
