This article is for those out there who like things that have multiple uses, especially in the home environment. If one thing can replace five different things at the same time, then it’s greatly appreciated. You can even save money and place in the kitchen.
One product similar to what I have described is Vicks VapoRub. There are multiple other options that you can find in the store with the same purpose. Its most known use is to rub it on the chest when you are sick. But actually there are a lot more uses to it than just that. The only thing that it is not appropriate for is to put in on children younger than two years old. Here are some amazing tips that will help you expand your knowledge when it comes to this product. You can always tell your family and close ones to help them as well.
Vicks is amazing when it comes to relaxing muscles. It makes you feel cooled down especially after a grueling workout. You can rub it over the sore area and then put a towel over it, most commonly dry and warm.
Make the bruising go away faster.
Add a little bit of salt to the VapoRub mixture and then place it over the bruising area. This will make the blood flow faster and easier which will help the bruising go away faster.
No more scratchy bug bites.
Rub VapRub directly on the bitten area to make the itching stop.
Calm down a headache from sinuses.
Dab the mixture beneath your nose and the temples. This will help you make the pain go away.
Cool down acne.
VapoRub will be very helpful overnight. Just dab some on the acne on your face and wash it in the morning. It will help cool down the entire face.
You will need to apply two times a day and then cover it up with a bandage. Cut your nails as they grow and they will clear up with time.
Apply at night on your cracked heels and then cover them up with socks. In the morning, remove the socks and rinse away the extra skin with a stone.
Use it against ear ache.
Apply VapoRub on a cotton ball and then put in the ear. Leave it for a couple of hours, a couple of times a day. This will ease your pain, but remember that it doesn’t help with infections.
VapoRub even for cats.
Apply the mixture on your furniture around the house or maybe some cables. The cat won’t come near them because of the mint smell and it won’t scratch the stuff.
VapoRub for all your pets.
You can apply the mixture to wherever your dog makes an “accident” and it will not come near that area for the second time.
Go back to its primary use.
VapoRub can be used on the feet and for colds, so make sure to have it around the house just in case you need it for whichever of the already mentioned situations.
