• What does a mayonnaise sauce recipe contain?

A mayonnaise sauce recipe contains four main ingredients which are: oil, vinegar, egg yolk and lemon juice. The commercial mayonnaise cups contain about 70-85% fat and these ingredients are good at fighting lice.

• How does a mayonnaise help in treatment?

If you’re a science student, you’d understand this- Oil has viscosity properties and hence, it helps in suffocating lice and nymphs. If you’re not a science student, you need not worry about the technicalities. Just know that it does help!

• How to use mayonnaise on head?

Apply mayonnaise on head and keep it overnight, or for 8 hours. Then, use shampoo to wash it off. You would see multiple dead lice on the floor. Repeat the process for a better result. Use a high fat mayonnaise for the process because low amount of oil may not be enough!

• Does mayonnaise also kill lice eggs?

The oil in the mayonnaise works on lice whereas the vinegar and lemon juice work on their eggs. While mayonnaise is not that effective in killing live lice eggs, I suggest that you still give it a try. Something is better than nothing and killing lice is a good start!

Traditional Method of Serving Food

Tracing the history of food service in India, serving food in banana leaves was a common practice before the culture of serving food in metal plates came to the mainstream. Indians were not in the habit of using soap until 17th century when Arab traders introduced these which were later popularized by the British invaders. Because it was considered unhygienic to use the same utensil to eat food, therefore using a banana leaf was considered a hygienic practice also because it could be disposed easily, else an individual might just reuse the unwashed utensil over and over again.
