Using Baking Soda to Soothe Bee Stings
As a parent, you’ve probably dealt with a decent bit of bee stings in your day. If your kids get stung by a bee, you can use baking soda to soothe the pain. When we go to the park I keep a Ziploc bag of baking soda with me, just in case. Just mix a bit of baking soda with water to form a paste. After that, you can rub it on the sting to soothe it.
Got in a Bee’s Nest? Take a Baking Soda Bath
Sometimes, children will inadvertently find themselves in a bee’s nest, or your husband may encounter a bee’s nest while mowing the lawn. If this happens, you can run a bath tub full of water and toss in a good bit of baking soda. Tell them to take a bath in the water and it will certainly soothe the pain and feel great.
Use Baking Soda to Soothe Jellyfish Stings
A fun day at the beach can turn into a nightmare instantly when someone gets stung by a jellyfish. I talked with an EMT back in the day and they told me to soothe a jellyfish sting you just need a little bit of baking soda and some white vinegar. I’ve helped out a lot of parents with screaming kids thanks to this little technique.
