Alternative uses of tea

Rather than just making a lovely cup of tea, you can use the stuff for lots of helpful remedies, as an ingredient in food or even to clean the toilet as you'll find out in our next slide.

You can use tea as a toner. Grab a dark tea bag, soak it in hot water for a few minutes and then apply.

Using tea bags to dye your hair isn't something everyone can do because the tones they create are really subtle. You'll need light coloured hair for this but if you do, you'll need to soak your hair in water that contains a highly concentrated tea bag or two.

You can also use tea to improve your health. You can help mouth wounds by biting down on a wet and hot tea bag. This can take away some teeth pain too and it's especially good if you have bleeding gums.

You can use teas of different varieties to paint. Just make the tea as normal but allow the bag to ferment in the cup for at least 30 minutes and then you can use it for a water colour paint.

You can chuck your used tea bags into the compost as they help the growth of bacteria which is needed to break down the substances found in your compost. They also act as a fertiliser.

Deodorising yourself with a tea bag doesn’t make much sense but you can use tea to deodorise a refrigerator. Place tea bags in an open container and then pop them in the fridge and you'll find that the horrible smells you fridge is producing will fade.

The toilet bowl isn't something that anyone wants to clean but it needs to happen every once and a while. All you have to do is place a few tea bags into the toilet bowl and let them sit overnight. When you remove them in the morning, scrub the stains with a toilet brush and you'll find a far cleaner toilet than before.
