1) Degrease Dirty Dishes

Trying to clean a greasy, dirty dish is so hard! It basically requires enough elbow grease to constitute a work out! Next time, soak the dishes in warm water with a few used tea bags. The tannins from the tea will break up the grease without the application of harsh chemicals. The tea will also help to loosen any stuck on food and save you from endless scrubbing!

2) Get Rid of Stinky Feet

 Say goodbye to stinky feet! Just give them a soak in a luxurious footbath made from…brewed tea. If you’ve got odorous feet, soak them in strong black tea for 30 minutes a day for 1 week. The tannic acid in the tea creates an unfriendly environment for bacteria and acts as an astringent. You won’t believe the results!

3) Clean Mirrors

You can make mirrors sparkle and shine, brew a pot of strong tea, let it cool and then use it to clean the mirrors or windows! You can dampen a soft cloth in the tea and wipe it all over the surface of the mirrors. Then buff with a soft, dry cloth for a sparkly, streak-free shine. You won’t believe how well it works to remove stubborn, greasy fingerprints from glass! You can even just rub a used tea bag on the surface and buff clean with a towel!
