Wives Tales that are the Real Deal #20: Spider Webs and Wounds

This is a FASCINATING wives' tale that I've never heard before: Use a spider web to stop a bleeding cut and speed up the healing process. Interestingly enough, spider webs truly CAN stop bleeding and help wounds heal faster. Spider webs are loaded with Vitamin K, a nutrient that plays an important role in the clotting of blood. Applying a spider web to a wound can help that wound to clot more quickly, which is why spider webs have been used as a European home remedy for centuries. In fact, spider webs were often used like gauze pads, stopping bleeding effectively.   [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="800"] Source: pestproducts.com[/caption] To add to the awesome, spider webs are coated with a special substance that may even stop wounds from getting infected. The substance can fight off both bacterial and fungal infections, meaning spider webs are like primitive antiseptics. If you can stand the thought of applying the silky webs to your wounds, you may just speed up the healing process! Source: WTAE Do you follow us on Instagram?
