Recycling Teabags...

Running a little behind today, but here I am finally. Also had a bit of a brain fart of what to share, but something came to mind at last!

I saw this idea on Facebook and decided to give it a try and surprisingly it's worked the two times I've tried it. As the post title says...recycling teabags...

But for what you ask...

For getting rid of bugs. Yep. Once my first few used tea bags dried out, I set one on the kitchen window sill where a small spider had taken up residence. Within a few days, it was gone.

Then Saturday, there was a party of ants in the bathroom. So I grabbed two plain and two mint teabags and placed them strategically in the bathroom. This morning...I only saw one random ant. I'll keep a few on hand and continue to test the theory, but so far so good. Also, mint is supposedly more effective.

If you've tried it, did it work for you?
