Weird home remedies

  1. 1. Weird Home Remedies By Luis Gutierrez Diego Granados Per.8
  2. 2. Blisters  Pour a small amount of Listerine on a cotton ball, and apply it to the blister 3 or 4 times a day. Doing this will kill germs and dry out the blistered area, helping ease the pain.
  3. 3. Bug Bites and Stings  Rub the inside of a banana peel on an itchy bug bite or painful sting to soothe itchiness and inflammation.  Treat fire-ant bites and/or stings (fire ants do both!) by rubbing the area with any antiperspirant that leaves a white, chalk-like residue on the skin. It prevents the painful sensation of being on fire.  Use an aluminum-containing roll-on deodorant on mosquito bites to relieve itching and swelling.  For a bee sting, remove the stinger quickly, either by pulling it out with a pair of tweezers or scraping it loose with a credit card or similar hard object. Then mix 1 teaspoon of meat tenderizer with just enough water to create a paste. Slather the paste on the sting, leave it there for 15 minutes, and rinse it off with plain water. If the sting is still red, place an ice pack on the skin for about 15 minutes.
  4. 4. Burns  Instead of using a special burn cream, apply a thin layer of ordinary toothpaste to the burned area. Bandage as you normally would. Clean the skin daily when you bathe, reapply toothpaste if necessary, and keep the burn covered while the skin heals.  Apply a thin layer of mustard to the burned skin. It may sting a bit at first, but the mustard eases pain and reduces the likelihood of blistering and scarring.
  5. 5. Chapped Lips  Treat dry, cracked lips with a layer of raw organic honey. The antibacterial properties of the honey help with healing.
  6. 6. Common Cold  To avoid getting a cold, simply gargle with plain water 3 times every day.This is one remedy that has science on its side. In 2005, researchers in Japan found that the 3 daily water gargles reduced colds by close to 40 percent!  If you have a cold, homemade chicken soup can boost your body’s own immunity and combat inflammation. Adding a pinch of cayenne pepper can ease congestion.
  7. 7. Constipation and/or Diarrhea  Whether you’d like your bowel movements to be more (or less) frequent, here’s one simple solution: apples or applesauce. Apples contain pectin, which softens stools. But apples can also help counteract diarrhea. If raw apples are not your favorite fruit, applesauce is a good substitute
  8. 8. Coughs  For an effective homemade cough syrup, mix together the following ingredients:  1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper  1/4 teaspoon ground ginger  1 tablespoon honey  1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar  2 tablespoons water  Adults can take 1 to 3 teaspoons, as needed, to control coughing. Keep leftover cough syrup in a closed container.
