FARGO – In my pursuit of a healthier lifestyle, I’ve been spending a lot more time outdoors.
Often at night, which means an open invitation for mosquitoes to feast on my flesh.
Even with bug spray, a breeze and a quick walking pace, I’ve fallen victim to lots of itchy bug bites.
Tip website Lifehacker suggests easing the itch with a hot spoon.
I gave it a try, heating a metal teaspoon under hot water for 30 seconds and pressing it against my bites.
It’s a simple remedy, and it works. The bumps remained, but the itch diminished.
