7 Household Items with Healing Powers -ad
Everyday items in your house have medicinal powers you may not know about. Who needs salves and creams when you have duct tape?
You’ve just been eaten alive by mosquitoes, and as luck would have it, you’re out of Benadryl and cortisone cream. Do you give up and spend the rest of the evening trying not to claw yourself to pieces? Not if you have Alka Seltzer in your medicine cabinet.
Those little indigestion alleviating tablets have aspirin in them, which acts as an anti-inflammatory to help soothe the itching. It also ex-foliates the area where you’ve been bitten so that any fluids, poisons, or other irritants can be released. Dissolve the tablets in water as usual, and then dip a cloth or napkin into the solution to be placed on the affected area. Use as a cold compress for 30 minutes, and you won’t be using your skin as a nail file all night.
