10 Folk Remedies Our Grandparents Swear By

These remedies stand the test of time (and science)!

Spider Webs Heal Wounds

Obviously, it is far preferable to use a band-aid to close up wounds (if for no other reason than you typically don’t have to deal with spiders when putting on a band-aid), but a spider web will definitely do the trick if you’re in a pinch! This folk remedy will probably come in handy if you go camping or hiking a lot and need a quick way to seal up a wound. The reason this works so well is not only due to the sticky, strong, and silk-like nature of spider webs, but also thanks to the proteins and vitamins which help speed up blood clotting and wound healing.
