Sugar tastes sweet and good, and can also be harmful. However, it can also have daily life benefits that can come in handy.
“Daily life benefits of sugar? What?! But we said that it is bad for your health…” Yes, my friends. It is true. Overconsumption of sugary foods can lead to many health problems.
However, sugar can come in handy in some situations daily. It can be used in the kitchen. But also for other home remedies
1. One of the benefits is to soothe bug bites and bee stings.
Rub some sugar on the itchy part of your skin. It drags out all the toxins from bug bites. Wash it off after 5 mins. It slows down the swelling, too.
2. Sugar removes stains
Mix sugar with warm water until it becomes a paste, and apply it to the stain. Rub it and let it be there for an hour. After, wash it off. You can also use 1 tbsp of sugar and a dampened cloth with hot water to clean the coffee mugs.
3. It helps in getting rid of the grease on your hands.
1 tbsp of sugar mixed with water can help you remove the grease from your hands. Be sure to use a toothbrush to remove the mixture from your hands.
Liquid dish soap and two spoons of sugar work really well. I used to bite my nails, and all the Gojo/Fast Orange stuff wouldn’t rinse fully and it would get on my tongue so I’m averse to it to this day. — athwolf / Reddit
4. No more smelly odors on your hands.
Onions, garlic, or raw fish can leave a smelly odor on your hands while cooking. Mix 1 tbsp sugar with 1 tbsp of soap and rub your hands. Then, wash them with water.
5. Sugar keeps yellow jackets and mosquitos away.
Yellow jackets, mosquitos, and other insects are attracted to sweet things. You can DIY a trap to keep them away. Fill a plastic bottle with water and sugar, and voila!
6. Another benefit: It relieves the pain of a burnt tongue.
Sugar can help to relieve pain when you have burnt your tongue. Pour some sugar into your burnt area and leave it to dissolve.
If you burn your tongue, put granulated sugar on it right away. The sugar will soothe your tongue, and it will heal very quickly. — fl_sunnygirl / reddit
7. Sugar reduces pain before an injection.
Sugar reduces pain before injections. Especially when it comes to babies, it is a lifesaver! Babies up to 12 months old can consume half a tsp to reduce the crying and pain after immunization. Careful. A tiny amount of sugary supplement can be given to them 2 mins before the injection. Otherwise, it will harm their little teeth.
