Soothe poison ivy
So, you went hiking through what you thought was a harmless patch of plants, and now you just can't stop scratching. First, memorise what poison ivy looks like so you can avoid it next time. Then, throw three to five tea bags into a filled bathtub, stir them around, and then take a pleasant soak. The tannic acids in the tea should help relieve the inflammation and the itching.
