Ways to Use Tea by Extraordinary Uses for Ordinary Things (excerpts)

This good-for-you item does more than brew up a good beverage. See what else tea is capable of!

Reduce razor burn

Ouch! Why didn't you remember to replace that razor blade before you started to shave? To soothe razor burn and relieve painful nicks and cuts, apply a wet tea bag to the affected area. And don't forget to replace the blade before your next shave.

Get the gray out

Turn gray hair dark again without an expensive trip to the salon or the use of chemical hair dyes. Make your own natural dye using brewed tea and herbs: Steep 3 tea bags in 1 cup boiling water. Add 1 tablespoon each of rosemary and sage (either fresh or dried) and let it stand overnight before straining. To use, shampoo as usual, and then pour or spray the mixture on your hair, making sure to saturate it thoroughly. Take care not to stain clothes. Blot with a towel and do not rinse. It may take several treatments to achieve desired results.

Condition dry hair

To give a natural shine to dry hair, use a quart (liter) of warm, unsweetened freshly brewed tea as a final rinse after your regular shampoo.
