In the realm of sustainability, every small effort counts, including finding innovative ways to repurpose used tea leaves. Not only does this practice help in reducing waste, but it also brings a myriad of benefits to our daily lives.

### 01 Refrigerator Deodorizing

Various food items and sauces in the fridge can mix and produce unpleasant odors. Placing used tea leaves in a bowl and then putting it in the refrigerator can alleviate these odors in just 2 hours. However, it's important not to leave the used tea leaves in the fridge for too long. Tea leaves that have been in the fridge for more than 6 hours may not be suitable for use, and it's best not to keep fresh used tea leaves in the fridge for more than 8 hours!

### 02 As Fertilizer for Potted Plants

Mixing used tea leaves with the soil in your home's potted plants can serve as a fertilizer. This increases the organic nutrients in the soil, enhances soil fertility, improves soil structure, promotes plant growth, improves crop quality, and helps retain soil moisture.

### 03 Degreasing and Dishwashing

Used tea leaves can be used for degreasing and washing dishes. Washing greasy pot lids or dishes with used tea leaves, or simply rubbing them with a dishcloth sprinkled with tea leaves, can result in a bright and clean effect. It's said that washing lacquerware with overnight strong tea and then wiping it with a dry cloth can also bring out a shine!

### 04 Beauty and Health—Bath Soaks, Foot Soaks, and Eye Compresses

How about a tea bath soak? If you're accustomed to taking baths or soaking your feet, adding used tea leaves to hot water can not only relax the body and mind but also let you enjoy the natural fragrance and beauty benefits of tea. The antioxidants in tea are great for skin protection, helping to relieve fatigue and soften the skin. Moreover, moist used tea leaves can also be applied as eye compresses to help reduce dark circles.

By employing these simple yet practical methods, we can not only reduce waste in the kitchen and our daily lives but also contribute to environmental protection. Next time after enjoying a cup of rich tea, why not try these creative repurposing methods to make your life greener and more sustainable?
