    Awesome article! I have never used the stuff myself but if I come across some, I may just have to check it out.

    I'll add one- if you have a task you MUST perform that REALLY stinks- a dab of Vick's on the upper lip can reduce your need to retch.

    When I was little, my dad would let me stay up late on Saturday nights to watch the black and white monster movies on TV at the time. Needless to say I would fall asleep on the couch before they would even start, until the day I discovered Vic's. I would take a deep breath of it as I felt myself starting to dose off, and I would then be wide awake for another 15 minutes or so.

    Some of these uses I knew of, but others not so much. Any others anybody knows of not mentioned?

    Rubbing some on your neck prevents being bit by vampires.

    There are times when I read something and I just have to bite my tongue and leave it alone. This is one of those times! :D

    BigB,

    Thanks for the information! Due to exposures in the past I have developed a slight case of asthma over the years. And rather than inhalers and other medicines I carry one of the little Vicks Inhaler Tubes with me everyday. And when the congestion and breathing issues start I just pull it out and take a few deep sniffs in each nostril and it opens and clears my lungs almost immediately! Will not go anywhere without it! So it is a good product and better than most know or think! Now thanks to you I know more uses!

    I have one of those in the medicine cabinet. Used it with the kids several times this winter. Those little sticks work awesome.

    2. On Your Tootsies
    Applying Vicks to your feet provides nighttime cough relief. Generously rub VapoRub all over your feet and cover them with socks. Within moments your cough will subside—in the morning you’ll wake up a new, hacking free woman.


    I don't know what the heck they put in that stuff but I think I'll pass.....
