Learn How to Handle a Jellyfish Sting
Planning a beach day soon? Pack a bottle of vinegar and make sure you know what to do if a jellyfish unexpectedly joins the party. If a jellyfish stings you, immediately get out of the water and wash the affected area with salt water. Use a stiff, flat object, like a credit card to gently scrape the area to remove any jellyfish tentacles left behind. Then, rinse the affected area with vinegar for at least 30 seconds to deactivate stinging cells.
