Vicks VapoRub is a popular over-the-counter cold medicine. Its main ingredients – camphor, menthol and eucalyptus – help relieve coughs and nasal congestion. However, these are not the only advantages of the product.
At Clamotion, we’re pretty sure you’ve never heard of this unconventional but amazing use for Vicks VapoRub, so we decided to share it with you.
- It repels insects
Try using an open Vicks VapoRub bottle to repel mosquitoes, flies, and other insects. This is perfect if you suddenly run out of repellent or left it at home.
- Relieves headache
Menthol, one of the main ingredients in Vicks VapoRub, lowers blood pressure in the head and thus relieves pain. Just rub a little on your forehead.
- Takes good care of your feet
Put Vicks on your heels before bed, especially on cracked and dry areas, and put on your socks. Make sure you use old socks, because the next day they will smell like menthol. In the morning, wash your feet with cold water, scrub off the dead skin with a pumice stone, and then apply your usual foot care products. Do this every night and soon you will see noticeable results.
- Prevent pet accidents
Something will happen, and if you don’t want your pet to pee in your home, leave a few Vicks in places where this happens often. Veterinarians say that both dogs and cats can’t stand the smell of Vicks, so this method will work.
- Prevent your cat from destroying your furniture
If your cat likes to scratch doors, new curtains, etc., leave VapoRub there. Your little furry friend will learn a lesson and stop destroying your furniture.
- Reduce stretch marks
