We’ve all been there, or know a family member or friend who has: the moment that a pleasant outing in the park or woods turns into an agonizing itchy ordeal thanks to everyone’s least favorite plant: Poison Ivy.
Fortunately – and mercifully! – you can safely dry up the itchy, weepy rash by re-brewing tea with your used tea sachets, moistening a cotton ball or cotton pad, and then gently dabbing it on the affected area.
Obviously, if the problem persists you’ll want to speak to your doctor. But in many cases, this little remedy will really help – and fast, too!
Here’s a little-known but highly creative way to reuse tea sachets: soak them in wax, allow them to naturally dry, and voila: you have an outstanding way to light a fire, such as in a backyard fire pit or on campsite.

If you’ve (ouch!) torn a fingernail and want to speed up the healing and repair process, give this a try: with some scissors, cut out a small peace of the used tea sachet. Then, use this piece to apply some clear nail polish to the torn fingernail. Replace the piece about once a week, and watch as it prevents the new, healthy nail from embedding itself in your nail bed, which can be painful and even cause an infection.
Why spend money on pricey carpet deodorizers – many of which don’t work? Next time, cut open your used tea sachet and sprinkle some slightly moist leaves across your carpets.
