Keep a container of meat tenderizer by the kitchen sink. If someone gets stung, make a quick paste by putting some of the meat tenderizer into the lid of the container and adding water. Apply to the sting as soon as possible. The meat tenderizer neutralizes the toxin from the sting, and the pain goes away!View Thread
One of the most common things that we see in the office in the summer and after winter vacations are burns from people having lime juice splashed on their skin. They come in with dark marks in the shapes of splashes and drips. Lime juice is photosensitizing-if it gets on the skin while you're outside in the sun, you will burn. So drink your margarita, but don't squeeze the lime or splash the drink on yourself or your friends!View Thread
