There are all sorts of insect bite creams on the market promising relief, but professional “life hack” expert and home improvement guru Anita Birges has revealed a way to treat a mozzie bite without spending a cent.

It’s incredibly simple – and takes only a few minutes to do.

Posting a video to TikTok, Birges said: “I love summer and being outside but something I hate, and my kids do too, are mosquitoes and those awful itchy bites.”

“But don’t worry, I have the mosquito bite healing hack everyone should know,” she added.

First, grab a mug and a spoon (of any size) from your kitchen.

Fill the mug about halfway with hot water straight from your tap.

Leave your spoon in the hot water for at least one minute.

Then, take the hot spoon and rub it over the bite for about five minutes.

“It helps break down the protein in the mosquito’s saliva,” Birges captions the video.

“The heat relieves the itch and will speed up the healing time.

“A definite summer life saver for everyone, especially the kids.

“Though the bump may linger, relief should be instant.”

Sharing the video to Instagram, Birges explained why her hack worked.

“That dreaded itching is actually caused by a protein that prevents clotting, thus allowing mosquitoes to, well, suck your blood,” she wrote.

“The application of heat will kill this protein; just make sure the spoon is hot enough to do the trick without burning your skin.”

Her fans and followers were impressed.

“Oh I hope this works!” one follower wrote.

“Will try it next time I get a bite (which will probs be imminent).”

“This is great Anita! I will definitely be trying tomorrow (as I get bitten everywhere I go),” wrote another.

“I’m allergic to mozzie bites, they actually swell up to the size of a golf ball and up.”

“Have been doing this for years and years on my kids,” one fan noted.

“I hate mosquitoes,” another said.

“The other night I was bitten all over my hands, so I lathered myself in cream.

“I’m going to try this remedy next time!”
