Vegetarians love it, non vegetarians gorge on sandwiches with fillings of meat and chicken! The variety just leaves us craving for more and each time we try something our taste buds crave for more, and we end up trying some other variety the next time! There are places which serve sandwiches from different parts of the world, and they are heavenly!

Easy to make

The internet is flooded with easy sandwich recipes, DIY sandwich recipes which are super easy to make. For people like me, who can barely cook anything, sandwiches act as a rescue to my kitchen ignorance. I can make something or the other with loaves of bread and make a sandwich out of it! Not only this, it is easy for people who are in a hurry and do not have enough time to cook. A sandwich is the best possible option where you can just make it and pack it, and eat it on the go!

Healthy

Health conscious people like sandwiches as they are filling and healthy. Sandwiches call for a good amount of vegetables which automatically increases the heath quotient of the sandwich. Most of the mayo sauce recipes in India are for sandwiches. A good spread of mayo is good to go with any salad. Healthy and tasty, sandwiches are the best option for a quick bite when really hungry, and we oh-so-love it!

Mayonnaise kills the lice

And we can’t thank the food service in India enough for the popularity of the food delivery mechanism. The pizza on the door is the idea of the perfect day and the dips of cheese and mayonnaise are just like the cherries on the cake!

One day I tried to use mayonnaise dip not as food but something else that I had read somewhere about, and here’s what I found out- it  can indeed be used for hair lice treatment. For me, it turned out to be beneficial so let me enlighten you about it!homemade mayonnaise on white background

• 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!
