Hello Everyone,Click to read about our staff

Tea has been in peoples’ pantries for ages, and you better believe we have been doing more with the little leaves than just sipping them. Here are some of my favorite alternative uses for tea that don’t require a sugar pot and cream.

Hint 1:

Wood furniture and floors aren’t the easiest to take care of; harsh chemical cleaners often strip them of color and shine. Instead, you can brew a tea-based cleaner to keep them healthy and gleaming. Boil two teabags in a quart of water, and let it cool. Then, dip a soft cloth into the tea and wipe down any grime-covered wooden surfaces.

Hint 2:

Some people have foot funk — that’s the way of life.
However, you can save yourself from the foot smell by
soaking your toes in a daily tea bath. About 20 minutes
in lukewarm tea should relieve your tootsies of any lingering stench.
