|Traditional usage and recycling idea of green tea|
Bath with Green Tea
Green tea is also good for your skin. Put tealeaves into a clean cotton bag and place it into a hot bath.
After the tea leaves fully opened, rub your body gently with the tea bag. This is good for all skin types.
Important: do not use the green tea which is inferior in purity, quality and fitness for consumption.
Clean the Cutting Board with used tealeaves
Have you had a trouble with getting rid of the smell permeated your hands or the cutting board after you prepared foodstuff such as garlic or fish? If you have, please try this way... Spread the used tealeaves on the cutting board, rub the board with your hands then rinse it. The smell is gone.
Green tea leaves can be used to protect your cast ironware from rusting. Wrap the used green tea leaves with a clean dry cloth, squeeze it, and then wipe your ironware. Catechin, one of the ingredients of green tea, reacts with iron and forms a thin coat on the surface.
Cleaning of Carpet, Flooring and Tatami-mat
First, dry the used tealeaves and spread them all over the carpet. Rub or brush the carpet gently. Then vacuum the leaves with dust. Green tea strongly absorbs smell and polyphenols contained in green tea eliminate bacteria.
Flooring and Tatatmi-mat:
Wrap the wet, used green tea leaves with a cloth, squeeze it and just wipe the floor or tatami-mat with the cloth. It provides a polished look.
As Natural Manure for Your Plants
Place used green tea leaves at the root and cover the leaves with dirt. I recommend you should cover the leaves with dirt to prevent the growth of mold. It brings benefits to your plant as it does to you.
Deodorizing Plus Enjoying Aroma
If you have expired green tea, put some leaves in a ceramic pot or container and burn the leaves.
It not only absorb smell but extremely fragrant.
Although my baby had a dry skin problem, it was cured two days after we changed the soap to the natural green tea soap.
