View Full Version : You Probably Didn't Know This...

Keep this on the Fridge

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?



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 of HORSERADISH
in 1 cup of OLIVE OIL. Let the mixture sit for 30 minutes, then
apply it as 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. (Note: Alka-Seltzer Plus Cold Medicine is
not the same..and contains aspirin, which can cause stomach bleeding
if you have ulcers.)



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.



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.



COCA-COLA cure for rust... Forget those expensive rust removers.
Just saturate an abrasive sponge with Coca Cola and scrub the rust
stain. The phosphoric acid in the coke is what gets the job done.



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.



Balm for broken blisters...To disinfect a broken blister, dab on a
few drops of LISTERINE ... a powerful antiseptic.



HEINZ 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.



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. Goodbye 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.



Eliminate ear mites... All it takes is a few drops of WESSON CORN
OIL in your cat'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.



QUAKER OATS for fast pain relief....It's not for breakfast anymore!
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.

i can tel u for sure that toothpaste soothes burns, honey and lime can work for sore throats.
Also maybe its the alchohol in listerine taht causes it to work on blisters....rubbing alchohol and menthalated spirits can be used for the same thing.
I may mention that in my opinion muslims shouldnt gargle with listerine beacue of its alchohol content and while u may not swallow it...it will mix with iure saliva and be ingeested. Try non alcholic listerine.

coca cola also removes grease and oil stains from clothes (for mechanics)...just pour a can into the wash and the acid in the coke eats away the grease...only works with coke though...not pepsi.
