    Default Vicks Vaporub, good for many things!

    Removes ticks

    Relieves ear aches

    Cough and cold.......of course

    Relieves hemmorrhoids..........after you get over the initial backflip or two.......LOL

    Topical Viagra substitute.........LOL actually read this, who wants to try this?

    Gets rid of headaches

    Good for bug bites

    Clears up acne

    Relieves aching muscles

    Some people eat it for a sore throat, ( not recommended )

    Removes splinters

    Can use to extract boils

    Lubricate squeaky hinges

    Cures cracked heels

    Softens leather

    Heals stretch marks

    Removes warts

    Helps to heal athletes foot

    Fire starting

    Incense for the pagan Gods

    I honestly found all of these cures on the internet, so it must be true

    Yeah. That sounds like the time I had renewed my wetwipes in my camping kit. But I didn't read the ingredients. Alcohol was involved. Fanning my fanny was just futile.

    It helps gunshot wounds, too, doesn't it?

    Man, that right there is funny I don't care who you are. Mentholatum is in the same league as Vicks. Good stuff.

    "What are you doing?"
    "Putting some Vicks on his gunshot wound."
    "He's dead!"
    "Don't want it to get infected."

    When I had a cold during my youth in the '50s, my Mother would rub Vicks on my chest then make me eat a small dollop of it. Wonderful, eating a petroleum product! It was right up there with putting oleo/butter on burns.

    I have just confirmed that Vicks salve rubbed into a cotton ball will catch a spark and burn like a SOB!

    Makes a bunch of nasty black smoke and smells like incense to some pagan god but it burns for more than a minute.

    Add fire starting to te list of uses.

    Yes, I am bored.

    Isn't that a double negative...."Don't never"?

    Actually I carry Carmex lip Balm....for many of those same uses.....and will catch a spark when rubbed on fluffed up Kleenex.....
    Not as painful ...... as it also can be used as an emergency version prep H....Vix vapor rub....not so much.
