The last couple weeks I have discovered 3 home remedies that REALLY work!
First issue: The little boy I nanny had a band-aid on and when it came off the adhesive left that terrible crappy sticky stuff. I tried scrubbing with soap and water, alcohol.... to no avail. I googled how in the heck do I get this off of skin?
The answer... baby oil! There was some around the house and I decided to give it a shot. Holy cow! It worked. The band-aid adhesive came off SO easily with baby oil. Didn't even have to scrub!
Takes off bandaid adhesive easily!
Easy price tag removal
Third issue: Last Sunday Rillz and I went on a 30 mile bike ride. It felt so great! I put sunblock on my back, shoulders, face... but oops forgot my arms and legs. For 5 hours my white, pastey skin was exposed to nice warm sun. Which equals SUNBURN. Talk about OUCH! So naturally I was a beautiful, painful shade of red. The first burning day I smothered myself in special Maui aftersun care and aloe vera. Wasn't doing the trick. Google didn't disappoint the other two times so why not give it a whirl again. Suggestions... wet the arm, pour baking soda on area, and then a rag soaked in vinegar on the baking soda. This is to help with the pain. Sounded like sizzling bacon. Kinda fun to listen to. Cooled my arms a bit. Oh yeah, I decided to experiment too. Only do the new ideas on my arms and leave my legs with just putting lotion on them. Just to see if there was any difference. Anyways, I came across an idea to put black tea on the burn. So I did. Wow! Love the results. The next day didn't hurt AT ALL and the redness went down so much. I will be using black tea the minute I see a sunburn on my skin. My legs a week later are still a nice bright red color and hurt a few more days after the arms stopped. AMAZING!
Aloe Vera, common sunburn reliever. I found it to be the worst option OVERAL! The gel tightened my skin making it more painful for me to move my arms. Spraying vinegar worked better! This got a big thumbs down.
Avon aloe vera spray was soothing for a whole 30 seconds time and the maui island sun lotion softened my skin but was not affective long term.
