A Warm Spoon Stops Bug Bite Itch #LifeHack @DonnaFaz


How is it possible that I raised 2 children to full adulthood, babysat a myriad of nieces and nephews, and taught slews of Sunday school children, all without ever learning that the best defense against bug bites can be found in the cutlery drawer?

I’ve searched Life Hacker, Wiki How, and Home Remedy Hacks (numbers 19, 20, and 21), all three sites say it’s true!

Heat a spoon under hot tap water to warm up the metal and then press it to the bug bite.

Apparently, heat breaks down the protein that causes the itch. Wow! I had no idea.

If you’ve tried this and it worked, please comment below. If you have some other trusted home remedy for bug bites, please comment. Let’s all learn together. Thanks!

I don't think I have ever heard this before! I have a few bites from working outside in the garden. I generally just suffer through them. I will certainly give this a try! Thanks.
