The Condiment for Bug Bites

Are you getting ready for a picnic or barbecue? Don't forget this condiment...and it's not just for hot dogs.

If you're at a picnic and you get an insect bite or sting, apply mustard to the area to help relieve the pain, itch and redness. You also can use ice cubes or a paste made from table salt and water to bring down the swelling (these are good remedies, but they don’t quite cut the mustard).

Mustard Removes Odors

If you want to re-use glass food jars, you may want to remove the odors left by the original contents.

For a medium-sized jar, put one teaspoon of dry mustard in the jar; fill to the rim with water. Leave it that way for 4 to 6 hours and rinse thoroughly with hot water. The jar should be odor-free.
