Bath-lovers? Enjoy this bath bomb blessing. This VapoRub bath bomb works a little differently, though. Instead of placing the bomb in the bath itself, place it in a separate container of hot water.
Placing the VapoRub bomb in the bath itself will cause the water to become slimy with petroleum jelly. A good idea is to fill the sink with hot water and let the bomb dissolve there, releasing the vapors into the washroom as you bathe. Ah, blissful.
Wedding Band Wonder Wax
We only advocate this hack for very legitimate reasons to remove your wedding band! Rings stuck on fingers can be a nightmare. Panic sets in as the tugging seems to make the ring more immovable. Take a deep breath, relax and reach for the jar of VapoRub.
A generous squeeze of VapoRub squished around the finger, and the metal will lessen the fight between skin and ring. Watch the rings slide right off like ice skaters as the petroleum jelly creates an oily exit for them off the fingers. Don’t use this hack to get stubborn rings on, though!
VapoRub has been shown to help significantly in soothing strained and aching muscles after strenuous activity, but there is a chance that it could help prevent strain. The cooling effect of the menthol helps keep the muscle relaxed and, as a result, eases the resistance of the workout movement.
The muscle still works to maximum effect but has a bit of help in doing so. The camphor, menthol, and eucalyptus will definitely not count towards any performance-enhancing substances, so all the bodybuilders are safe!
Unglue That Gum
Kids are usually in possession of two things: chewing gum and a lack of self-awareness. And the combination of the two means finding chewing gum glued to the worst spots of the best household items. We have a VapoRub hack that will slice through that gum and save your furniture and fabrics!
Maybe grab a pair of gloves for this one. Work a lump of VapoRub into the gum itself, and at the point where it is sticking to the furniture. The VapoRub will lubricate the drying stickiness and make it easier to pull the gum off.
Winter Is Coming
Arctic blasts are not known to be of particular benefit to the epidermis. The cold air of winter and lack of humidity will suck all the summer moisturization efforts right out of your skin. Combine this with indoor heating, which further dries out the skin, and you have a recipe for dermatological disaster.
To prevent this, apply a light coat of VapoRub to body parts that will be exposed to the cold air. The petroleum jelly will lock in moisture and prevent the cold air from extracting it out of your skin. Remember to not use excessively on the face.
