Uses of Brewed Tea Leaves
After you drink your favorite Tea, what do you do with the brewed leaves. Well don’t throw them away. We can reuse them to do something positive. Whether it is brewing another cup, cleaning our house or care for our plants.
Use Brewed Tea leaves to Deodorize your refrigerator or your shoes
Fill a bowl with used green tea leaves to help deodorize your refrigerator and keep smells under control. Instead of using baking soda, Tea is much better. Make sure the leaves are dry before placing them in the refrigerator. The same can be done for smelly shoes. Use dried tea leaves to absorb all that odour.
Use Brewed Tea leaves to Reduce eye puffiness
If you wake up in the morning to swollen puffy eyes, fill a muslin bag with green tea leaves. Place the bags in the refrigerator until cold and then place them on your swollen eyes. Lie down and relax with your head propped up higher than your body.
Use Brewed Tea leaves to absorb dampness in your house or room
After you use tea leaves to make yourself a cup of chai, let the remains dry under the sun. Once they lose all their moisture and are crackling dry, keep a bowl of these leaves in a damp indoor corner. The remains will reabsorb moisture from around it. This will especially work in cabinets and shelves which are prone to dampness.
Use Brewed Tea leaves to Deodorize to add nutrients to the soil
Tea leaves contain tannic acid and nutrients that are natural fertilizers for a garden. As the tea leaves decompose, they release nutrients into the soil, creating a healthier growing environment.
Use Brewed Tea leaves to feed Your Garden
Rebrew used tea leaves in a bucket of water and use the resulting weak tea liquor to water your plants and protect them from fungal infections. Sprinkle the damp leaves around the base of your plants to fertilize the soil and deter garden pests like mice & other bugs.
Use Brewed Tea leaves for Room Freshener
Pick used tea and add scent them by adding a drop or two of your favorite essential oil to the tea leaves. Try oils of peppermint, orange, lemon, lavender, rose or rosemary. Sprinkle it around the house or make a small bag for lasting aroma.
