Does anyone have any ideas what to do with used tea bags or grounds? There must be some way to recycle them.

I refrigerate my used tea bags and place on my puffy,tired eyes for 10 minutes.

We put ours in the compost heap, but I'll be holding a few back now that I've read Keeper's tip!

Here's a few. Wrap in cheese cloth and add to hot bath (Green and herbals)

Green tea absorbs odors- place some in fridge. I agree with PookaRina on the ferns. Add brewed leaves to potting soil. Makes good plant food. Poach some pears in brewed tea. Yum!

I put them on my plants and in compost. Both green and black tea will work as deodorizers so I hang teabags around after they have dried. I also use them as a car deodorizer. I had a chemical smell (glue? plastic?) in some of my cupboards and a few teabags fixed that. I read somewhere about tea being used to help in "sick house syndrome." Also, if you throw some in the garbage, they help keep it from getting too smelly!
