5. Remove unpleasant odors

Tea leaves can remove various odors by absorbing them. Put used dry tea leaves into bags made by gauze and put them wherever unpleasant orders may develop—the refrigerator, the kitchen, the bathroom, the closet, inside the shoes, etc.

6. Clean mirrors and windows

Clean the mirror or window with a wet tea bag first, then wipe the mirror with a piece of dry cloth to make it clean and bright.

7. Remove burner scale

Burner scale sticking to the bottom of pots and pans is hard to remove. Throw 1 or 2 tea bags in hot water in the pot or pan. The next day, the burner scale will have been removed by the tannins in the tea leaves and it can be washed away easily.

8. Prevent rust

Rust develops easily on iron pots, which spoils one’s appetite. Rub the inner surface of the pot with wet tea bags after cleaning the pot. A protective coating will form to prevent the iron pot from gathering rust.
