Did You Know

I'm starting something new on my blog called "Did You Know"  These are all going to be really quick simple post that are about something simple.  Usually a simple solution to a problem that everyone deals with at times.  My first one for today is this, BEE STINGS.

I always did the baking soda and water.  You make a paste and put it on the sting.  Well, I just learned something new.  You take an alka-seltzer tablet and moisten it slightly and then stick it straight on the sting.  It contains baking soda which helps reduce inflammation and it contains asprin which relieves the pain.  The fizzing allows for both of those two factors to travel beneath the skin providing immediate relief!  Sweet right?!  I need to get some alka-seltzer tablets for our car first aid kit.  ( Note to self:  get a car first aid kit!  haha )

Great advice! We always used cigarette tobacco when we were stung... bees, wasps and jellyfish! Open cigarette, moisten tobacco and place on sting. Worked like magic, except the really bad jellyfish stings. Trouble is, we don't smoke, and smokers pay a lot of money for their habit. The Alkaseltzer sounds like a better deal... ; )
