Green tea is generally known for its potent antioxidants and detoxing abilities, but surprisingly, there’s more to this miracle drink than we think! Here’s a list of green tea benefits you probably didn’t know about.
Green tea itself does not block out UV rays but it can protect exposed skin cells from further damages. Apply a cooled cloth soaked in brewed green tea directly on the skin to soothe sunburn and prevent skin cancer in the long run!
Instant Vintage Photos
Love the faded look of vintage photographs? Use a saturated green tea bag and rub it gently over the surface of a printed photo and let dry. It’s that easy!
Clean Pots and Pans
If you’re having trouble removing stubborn gunks off your cookware, just leave them overnight with water filled to the brim and a few green tea bags before washing. The tannins in the tea help to remove grease and other residues effectively.
Dry green tea bags are highly absorbent and will soak up both liquids and odours. Place a few of them in your gym bag, shoe closet and refrigerator to get rid of unwanted stinks.
Infuse a unique earthy flavour to your meat by adding green tea to your marinade mixture. Four to six tea bags to one cup of hot water would do the trick!
