*I think we only have Children's Vicks, so results could be affected.
3:40 PM - Scoured medicine cabinet for adult Vicks. Found some. Noted expiration date of 1999. Took a whiff. Still smelled pretty strong, so decided to give it a try.
3:45 PM - Applied expired adult Vicks Vaporub to bottoms of feet, covered with socks, and changed into old slippers to as not to Vicksify new slippers.
3:50 PM - Found and read this.
3:52 PM - Coughed once. Not nearly as harshly as before.
Note: I think this remedy is primarily for nighttime coughing, but what the heck. I'm not going anywhere this afternoon. More findings as they come...
4:45 PM - So far, this is not really working. Still coughing quite a bit.
- Expired Vaporub
- Did not apply enough Vaporub
- This only works at night when one is under the covers
- This is a bogus remedy
So, tonight I will put on some more, and see what happens. Dang, I really hope it works.
7:45 PM - applied Baby Vaporub to the Peanut's feet. Will apply more to mine at bedtime and update with results in the morning.
