Tasty and with lots of health benefits, thyme is always going to surprise you with something more! Last time we talked about how good the herb can be for our body, right? If you missed the article, be sure to check it out here!
However, thyme may be quite popular in the kitchen, but have you thought it might also help to keep your home clean?! Today we are focusing on some home tricks that will definitely save your day. Keep reading!
- Acts as a mould remedy
Must, that unwanted “intruder” often tends to find a nice spot in some corner of our house or apartment and it seems as if it would stay there forever. In general, mould is a type of fungus that, just like in the human body, spreads where conditions are good for it to grow. We are talking about moisture, wood materials, dust, warm atmosphere and so on.
Alright, we know it’s hard to get rid of those, but at least you can try eliminating the mould. Here comes thyme to help, of course! Known for its antifungal properties, the herb can be your best ally against mould at home. There are plenty of ways to use thyme as your home remedy, so you just have to choose the one that best suits you.
- Keeps the pests away
Here’s something you probably didn’t know so far! Rats, ants, clothes-moths and all these types of pests are said to hate the smell of thyme. Luckily, we people love it because (let’s admit it!) it’s so refreshing that it makes you feel the love in the air. However, it turns out that the little bugs we all try to get rid of do not like it at all and that’s why they run from it. Well, you can use this as your weapon next time you happen to ‘meet’ the little guys in some of the corners. You may also use thyme’s essential oil, in case you want an even stronger effect!
- Eliminates bad smells
Good news for all of you, who can’t think of a proper way to get rid of the unpleasant smells that tend to go in the air at home! Whether it would be due to stuffy air or because there is something (a mouse?) that died behind the kitchen cabinets long time ago, thyme can help you out! Thanks to its antiseptic and antifungal properties, thyme is a good source against bad smells.
Plus, the herb itself has an amazing flavor, as we already mentioned in the point above. Not only can thyme absorb the unpleasant smells, but it also spreads some nice molecules up in the air. How convenient!
