Sugar Can Do More than Just Sweeten!images (7)

Besides been the material we love to taste the most, sugar can help out with plenty of other things, and is always worth having around the house. We’ve collected a few of these uses for you to learn about – you’ll never think of sugar as just a sweetener again!


Uses of Sugar:
1. Calming babies:images (6)

Studies in Pediatrics show that babies who have been given a solution containing one spoon of sugar and four glasses of water before being vaccinated reacted more calmly to shots than those who didn’t.

2. Treating wounds:

A pinch of sugar may help heal many types of wounds. Among them: Pressure wounds, ulcers and cuts. All you need to do is pour a little sugar on the wound and it will kill all the bacteria in the area and even relieve local chronic pain.

3. Treating a burnt tongueEat-Sugary-Foods3

sipping too quickly from a scolding coffee cup, biting into a steaming pizza, it’s easy to burn your tongue, and that feeling isn’t very pleasant. In order to alleviate this uncomfortable feeling, put a little sugar on the burnt area.

4. Body peeling:115

Due to its rough texture, sugar can be used as a perfect peeling agent and offer great aid in your grooming routine. A simple peel can be made by mixing sugar with different kinds of oil (Canola, almond, jojoba or olive), as well as add essential oils to the mix or some vanilla abstract to upgrade the scent. An addition of vitamins in the form of a banana will help, and you can mash it and combine with three spoons of sugar and one of olive oil to create the peeling.

5. Cleaning dirty hands:images (4)

When the hands are very dirty (from color or grease, for instance), you can use sugar to remove the hard stains. The sugar will be added to soap foam and give it a good rub.

6. Nourishing the lips:chapped-lips-for-winter

Mixing a little jojoba oil with olive oil with a drop of sugar powder and the mint or vanilla extract can create a natural moisturizing cream that’s both intensive and extremely efficient at nourishing your lips. Smear some of it on your lips and gently rub.

Also, if you want your lips to look better with lipstick on, just put a nice amount of sugar on the lips and allow it to absorb for several minutes.

7. Terminating pests:pcc-3923184244804226132-cartoon-sprayer-man_r

If the roots of your garden plants are full of worms, you’ll probably be happy to find out they can be killed using sugar. Bury 5 kilos of sugar for each 250 meter square of land, and wait patiently – the sugar will naturally kill all the worms.
Sugar can also be used to capture and kill other pests. To catch annoying flies, create a mixture of equal amounts of honey, sugar and water and boil it in a pot while stirring. Then take a square of sticky paper and create a hole on one end. Pour the mixture, after it cools, on the sticky side of the square and hang it on the wall with a string. The flies will go for the honey and stick to your smart trap.
To get rid of cockroaches, put equal amounts of sugar and baking powder near their hideouts. The sugar will draw them in while the baking powder will kill them.

8. Nourishing the roots of your flowers:ch-43-lecture-4-638.jpg

To give a better look to your home flower patch, you can use three teaspoons of sugar with two tablespoons of white vinegar for each liter of water we give them. The sugar will help nourish the stems while the vinegar will prevent bacteria from growing.

9. Cleaning grass stains:491cfdde9114d9a6eba8f3c9efcad2eeacbd079e

Make a mixture from hot water and sugar and smear on clothes with grass stains. Allow it to soak into the clothes for about an hour or a bit more (depending on how covered it is in the stains), and then put in the laundry as usual.

10. Keeping food fresh:f9e879b0dabb91c621789f498f963608

If you put a cake or cookies in a sealed container in which a few sugar cubes are places, they will keep fresh for longer. Same goes for cheese.

How to Make the Perfect Lemonade

Lemonade is a lemon-flavored drink sweetened with sugar among other sweeteners. In North America, certain European countries, and most Asian countries lemonade is usually made from a basic recipe of lemon juice, water, and cane sugar or honey and is often home-made.
