No one enjoys been stung by a bee. Even after been stung the swelling and pain that follows may be worst than the sting altogether.  A lot of times someone may be bitten while working or playing in their yard.  If this happens to you or someone who you know, then you may already have supplies around the house that will help.

Difficulty: Easy
Things You’ll Need:

  • Orajel
  • Windex
  • Ban deodorant
  • White vinegar
  • Listerine
  • Lipton tea

Step 1
how to use orajel
If you have some Orajel toothache pain relief in the cabinet, apply a dab of it and this will numb the pain.
Step 2
other use for windex
Cleaned the windows lately? Spray a little Windex glass cleaner on the bee sting.
This will lessen the pain, reduce the swelling, neutralize the bee venom, and disinfect the sting.
Step 3
Ban deodorant use
Put some Ban deodorant directly on your bee sting to immediately stop the swelling.
Step 4
bees and vinegar
Once again, Heinz white vinegar steps in to help with so many household projects.
Put some Heinz white vinegar on a cotton ball apply to the area that was stung to neutralize the venom and relieve some pain.
Step 5
listerine antiseptic
Any Listerine in the bathroom? Well, the antiseptic in the Listerine kills the proteins in the bee’ s venom and will start working immediately on the pain.
Step 6
remedies with lipton tea bags
Had a tall glass of ice cold Lipton tea recently? Put a dampened tea bag over the area where you were stung and hold it there for ten minutes.
In doing this the acid in the tea relieve the stinging sensation, plus it will help the stinger come to the surface of the skin so that you will be able to remove it easier.
Step 7
care for bee stings
If you see many bees swarming; do not go to that area. Chances are the bees are angry and may attack you. Avoid contact with bees if possible.
