I love finding ways to use everyday items in new and different ways. The internet is a great source for learning alternate uses but some of these are uses I’ve picked up from some of the great older ladies in my life. There are quite a few surprising uses for toothpaste that I’ve tried over the years. You may want to give them a try as well.
Tea tree oil is extracted from the leaves of the Melaleuca Tree which is indigenous to Australia. The Aborigines are believed to have used the leaves for centuries, perhaps even longer. They crushed the leaves and inhaled the oil to treat coughs, applied crushed leaves to wounds and made infusions of leaves to treat skin conditions and sore throats. There are so many uses for it you should definitely keep tea tree oil in your home.
We’ve all seen the commercials by the egg producers (the people, not the chickens) but it’s not just the incredible “edible” egg. There are alternate uses for eggs you may not have tried; along with some obvious ones.
