Tuesday's tip o' the day...burns

I'm a klutz sometimes. 

And I like to cook.

And I work as a barista (I make coffee).

So I burn myself, often.

And when I do, I have a surefire technique to not blister or sting.   My old boss, Candy, had a remedy for everything and this was one of her.

Immediately after you burn yourself, instead of running the burn under water, run the cold water over a black tea bag.  Apply the cold tea bag to the burn, rewetting it as necessary, until the sting is gone.

Just a little tip, from a girl who has been there and done that too many times!
