New article about uses for used tea leaves
There are some ideas here I haven’t heard before, thought I would pass it along: http://www.mnn.com/lifestyle/recycling/stories/20-ways-to-reuse-coffee-grounds-tea-leaves
Thanks for linking this! I might try using spent leaves on that large uncomfortable burn I got while making tea, ironically. One of the tips confuses me though.
16. Treat the dog
As an extravagance, loose leaf gunpowder tea is a treat for dogs to roll around in. It’s great for the aroma and luster it adds to the coat.
I’m curious…why does it have to be gunpowder tea? Why is that better than another green tea? Also, in what crazy universe would you be able to convince your dogs they should roll around in tea leaves and not eat them? I don’t understand the science in this tip! Halp!
Throw it in your cat litter: trying this tonight. Thanks for the link.
The cat litter sounds brilliant. My tea input is the only thing that might match my kitty’s litter output!
I noticed that one too, just working on my own article for used tea. Saved my tea for the entire weak and was letting it dry so I can make a herbal pillow, herbal candles (from jasmine tea) and tea lipgloss from it. Might have to put my article on hold and try the cat litter one first instead :)
How does an aroma nourish soil?
Thanks for the link, I might try that one next time I cook with onions!
I actually don’t mind when garlic lingers on my fingers. It’s usually faint and mmmmm garlic! I might be weird.
My fiancee and I are garlic nuts – we use several heads a week and have a cutting board used specifically for garlic that has the most delicious aroma. Mmmm!
