10 SIMPLE DIY HACKS YOU WON’T BELIEVE ACTUALLY WORK
Below is the list of 10 simple beauty and health tips and solutions for many day to day problems.
1 DUCT TAPE FOR GETTING RID OF WARTS
Duct tape is better for removing warts as compared to liquid nitrogen. This has been successfully proven by a study conducted at the Archives of Pediatrics And Adolescent Medicine.
You just need to tear a piece of duct tape and apply it on the infected area. Remove the duct tape
everyday and paste a new one for few days and also rub the wart with a nail file or pumice stone for a few days until the wart is gone.
Though the scientists are not so sure about this particular method, still they believe that the chemical contained in the tape does the trick. One alternative theory is that the application of duct tape causes irritation on the skin which in turn causes the immune system to attack the wart.
2 BITE A PENCIL TO RELIEVE HEADACHE
This particular theory is based on the fact that when stressed, we often clench our teeth which strain the muscles that connect the temples to the jaws. This particular action can result in headache. If you place pencil between your teeth but not bite down on it, you would be able to relax your muscles thereby reducing the pain. However, this method is successful in relieving only some types of headaches.
3 DRY OUT BLISTERS WITH THE HELP OF LISTERINE

4 SOOTHE ECZEMA THROUGH OATMEAL BATH
Soaking in warm water consisting of two to three cups of colloidal or finely ground oatmeal for 15 minutes relieves almost all the irritation caused by eczema. The oatmeal has an antihistamine effect and reduces inflammation.
5 TREAT MOTION SICKNESS WITH OLIVES
Motion sickness is often accompanied by a feeling of nausea which may result in vomiting. In the event of vomiting, the human body’s protecting system kicks in and mouth begins to secrete excessive saliva in order to protect teeth from stomach acid. Eating a few olives dries the mouth and prevents the secreting of excessive saliva in the mouth. This is due to presence of tannins in the olives. Removing this particular symptom reduces nausea and prevents you from vomiting.
6 SUGAR FOR CURING HICCUPS
