The Mosquito Bite Cure
The rumors seemed too good to be true: instantly stop the itch of a mosquito bite with a warm spoon. Really? How could we not have known about this remedy our entire Midwestern lives?! Turns out, it works like a charm:
- Hold a spoon upside-down under hot water for 30 seconds.
- Press the back of the spoon onto the bite until the heat dissipates.
For best results, give the bite at least 60 seconds of heat. The bump will remain, but the swelling and redness should noticeably improve—at least enough to keep you from itching and scratching. Sometimes the best solution is the simplest one! –Dani
