A couple weeks ago, when we were building the flower bed, I somehow got into some poison ivy. EEEK! So I went on the computer to find some home remedies. You won't believe some of these. Right out of Granny Clampett's recipe book!
- spray starch
- 7 day deodorant pads
- onion sprinkled with salt
- rub with a banana peel
- vinegar and preparation H
- clear fingernail polish
- Vick's Vaporub
- hair spray
- mashed potato paste
- And get this one....a lead fishing sinker tied around your neck !!
Well I had bought some Preparation H ( I had see a woman on Oprah that used it as a face cream to remove wrinkles ) but that's another post.
So I tried it...and it worked!!
The vinegar helped dry up the rash and the Prep. H took away the itch for at least 8 hours!
