8 Surprising Life Hacks that Work

One pesky factor about lounging out on the lake or even hanging around outdoors, in general, during summer is mosquitoes. These critters will find any length of exposed skin and leave you with a bite that itches and itches. This can happen sometimes even when you have already applied insect repellent. Applying heat to the bite can prove to be a quick method to relieving that itch and not ruining your evening. Grab a spoon and run it in hot water for about 20-30 seconds. Once it is heated through, place the back of the spoon on the bite and leave it for 15-20 seconds. Of course, you will eventually want to apply some sort of anti-itch cream, but this quick-fix will alleviate the itch for an hour or more.
