    5 Uses For Meat Tenderizer

    Interesting bits.....

    USE #2 -Relieve Bug Bites/Stings – oddly enough, meat tenderizer can offer some relief from itchy and painful insect bites and stings. It is a staple in some prepper medicine cabinets much like a staple in the prepper pantry.
    USE #3 – Burn Remedy – Meat tenderizer helps heal burns. To use meat tenderizer to heal burns, make a soothing paste out of it using water.

    @RedLion Um...that's a joke, right?

    Meat tenderizers chemically break down the bonds between the cells of a piece of meat.

    You really want the bonds of your skin/muscle cells broken down??

    I guess that would be one way to 'stop an itch' - but...I'll pass.

    Growing up, any time us kids got stung by a bee, wasp or what have you, grandma or Mom would make a paste with water and meat tenderizer and rub it on the sting. From what I remember it worked like a charm.

    Old biker trick for bee stings is take a cigarette and start rubbing the tobacco firmly into the sting area and presto no welt no itch no pain.

    Chewing tobacco works, too. Not that I carry a can but...

    I guess I would try it on "closed skin" and see what happens? I don't have any at the moment.

    Funny story about Home Remedies;

    I have used Bleach most of my adult life to clean my skin after exposure to poison ivy/oak and it has worked on me. One time, Mrs Slippy got crazy and decided to help me clear a section of our property that had plenty of poison ivy.

    So after a day of clearing I took a bottle of clorox bleach, put it on a white wash cloth and wiped down my arms and legs and let the bleach do its thing while I sat down and drank 2 or 3 beers before rinsing it off (The old 2-3 Beer Time Limit! )

    Mrs S had one area of her arm near her wrist that she thought had been exposed to poison ivy so I poured a bit of clorox on a white cloth and wiped down her arm. She was skeptical and kept bitching and moaning that it wouldn't work so I said "Woman, quit your bitching and moaning, set the damn clorox rag on your arm, drink a couple of beers and we'll all be happy!"

    The next day poor Mrs Slippy had a freakin' white patch of skin on her normally beautiful tanned skin that would make Michael Jackson proud! If you happen to meet Mrs S, take a look at her left wrist and notice the white patch that wraps damn near around her wrist!
