Do You Know All The Uses For VapoRub? It's Amazing

If you keep that big vat of Vicks in your medicine cabinet and let it gather dust between chest colds, you're wasting what might be a valuable home resource. Vapor Rub actually has a lot of uses, so you might want to keep it within reach.

The ingredients in vapor rub - eucalyptus, camphor and menthol - are not just good for decongestion and cough relief. They're also great for sore muscles and headaches. Rub it on an achy muscle and wrap it with a warm, dry towel, or dab some on your temples. It can be very soothing.

If you find yourself suffering from ear pain, dab some Vicks on a cotton ball. Stick the cotton ball in your ear. Don't press it in, just wedge it in above the lobe. Sleep with it and it should help soothe that pain as well.

If you have nail fungus, smear on some Vicks two to three times per day. Fungus can take months to grow out, but the Vicks will get rid of it a lot better than those expensive anti-fungal drops.

Vicks Vapor Rub isn't just for health issues. You can use it to repel bugs. rub it on your clothes, or on the baseboards.

And if you're trying to keep your cat off of your antique sideboard, a little Vicks rubbed on the surface will repel him as well.
