Remedies – Who Knew?

Oatmeal for arthritis? Glue to remove splinters? Who knew? 

Eliminate ear mites. All  it takes is a few drops of Wesson Corn Oil in  your cat’s or dog’s ear… massage it in, then clean with a cotton  ball. Repeat  daily for 3 days. The oil soothes the cat’s skin, smothers the mites,  and accelerates healing.

Kills  fleas instantly… Dawn  Dish washing Liquid does the  trick. Add  a few drops to your dog’s bath and shampoo the  animal thoroughly. Rinse  well to avoid skin  irritations. Good-bye  fleas.

Rainy  day cure for dog odor: Next time your dog comes  in from the rain, simply wipe down the animal  with Bounce or any dryer sheet, instantly making  your dog smell springtime  fresh. 

 Did  you know that drinking two glasses of Gatorade  can relieve headache pain almost  immediately-without the unpleasant side effects  caused by traditional pain  relievers?

Did  you know that Colgate Toothpaste makes an  excellent salve for burns? And for ladies… it is good as feminine wash too! Its cool effect makes you feel refreshing 🙂

 Before  you head to the drugstore for a high-priced  inhaler filled with mysterious chemicals, try  chewing on a couple of curiously strong Altoids  peppermints. They’ll  clear up your stuffed nose..

     Achy  muscles from a bout of the  flu? Mix  1 tablespoon horseradish in 1 cup of olive  oil. Let  the mixture sit for 30 minutes, then apply it as  a massage  oil for instant relief for aching  muscles.

  Sore  throat? Just  mix 1/4 cup of vinegar with 1/4 cup of honey and  take 1 tablespoon six times a  day. The  vinegar kills the bacteria.

 Cure  urinary tract infections with  Alka-Seltzer. Just  dissolve two tablets in a glass of water and  drink it at the onset of the  symptoms. Alka-Seltzer  begins eliminating urinary tract infections  almost instantly-even though the product was  never been advertised for this  use.

 Honey  remedy for skin blemishes…. cover the blemish  with a dab of honey and place a Band-Aid over  it.Honey  kills the bacteria, keeps the skin sterile, and  speeds healing. Works  overnight.

Listerine  therapy for toenail fungus:Get  rid of unsightly toenail fungus by soaking your  toes in Listerine Mouthwash. The  powerful antiseptic leaves your toenails looking  healthy again.
Also as balm  for broken blisters… to disinfect a broken  blister, dab on a few drops of  Listerine, a  powerful antiseptic.

Easy  eyeglass protection… to prevent the screws in  eyeglasses from loosening, apply a small drop of  Maybelline Crystal Clear Nail Polish to the  threads of the screws before tightening  them.

 Cleaning  liquid that doubles as bug killer… if menacing  bees, wasps, hornets, or yellow jackets get in  your home and you can’t find the insecticide,  try a spray of Formula  409. Insects  drop to the ground instantly.

 Smart  splinter remover: Just pour a drop of Elmer’s  Glue-All over the splinter, let dry, and peel  the dried glue off the  skin. The  splinter sticks to the dried  glue.

  Hunt’s  Tomato Paste boil cure… cover the boil with  Hunt’s Tomato Paste as a  compress. The  acids from the tomatoes soothe the pain and  bring the boil to a head.

Vinegar  to heal bruises… soak a cotton ball in white  vinegar and apply it to the bruise for 1  hour. The  vinegar reduces the blueness and speeds up the  healing process.

Quaker  Oats for fast pain relief… it’s not for just breakfast any more!  Mix  2 cups of Quaker Oats and 1 cup of water in a  bowl and warm in the microwave for 1 minute,  cool slightly, and apply the mixture to your  hands for soothing relief from arthritis  pain.

   Dominos Sugar is great for exfoliating. Face and skin are so soft.

    Remedies — who knew?
    I can vouch for many of these remedies. One example was a few months ago when my husband ran in the house yelling there was a bug in his ear! I jumped on the internet and found that any cooking oil will cause the bug to leave. It worked immediately!
