We have all gotten blisters while doing home projects, two tried and true home remedies for blisters can be found in your kitchen – milk or tea. Soak a wash cloth in milk and hold it on the blister for 15 minutes, or you can use a cold, used tea bag, holding the tea bag on the blister for 15 minutes. After you make tea, save a few used tea bags in a ziploc bag and keep in the kitchen fridge for handy use in home remedies.
